Getting error flashing the new 07/11 19.07 build. r7800
The uploaded image file does not contain a supported format. Make sure that you choose the generic image format for your platform. Select 'Force upgrade' to flash the image even if the image format check fails. Use only if you are sure that the firmware is correct and meant for your device!

New checkbox appeared- 'force upgrade'. Check it and flash. It works

Kong will no longer maintain 18.06 builds.

Only 19.07 from now on.

Note from his changelog:
This build is now EOL. I plan no further updates.
You can seamlessly upgrade to 19.07 by using sysupgrade.bin,
reset is not required.

I didn't get this error. Mine went smoothly.
I did confirm the sha256 checksum before flashing each time.

Slidermike - I've got a similar setup to you - an R7800 as the main router, with two R7000's connected by wire as access points. All are currently running Kongs DD-WRT. Nothing special on the R7800, just DHCP Option 61 on the WAN configuration and a guest access WiFi network on a different subnet on the R7800. Would that be easy to setup on the LuCI GUI on Kongs OPenWRT? Most of the guides I have seen are using console. Also, any issues running Kong build R7000's as dumb access points connected to it?

Thanks.

Jason,
I need to update my sig.
Actually my current setup is
R7000 - Router (XVortex Merlin fork with adblock & IP blocking enabled) & r7800 running Kong openWRT 19.07 as an AP.
I am not the best resource for openwrt config questions. Just running as an AP based on google found settings.

It contains performance fixes + custom theme + package repo + extra features.

Ok thanks.
I read on openwrt that with 19.07 there's no installable packages from buildbot, at least on hnyman's release, so here all the packages are installable, I understand correctly?

@<Kong>
What do you think is better for R7800? OpenWrt or dd-wrt, my hope is to have a quite stable build that sometimes I've to update.
Any advice?

All the ones, that I build, right now about 1000 packages.

Openwrt updates are more consistent, means updates should not break things that have been working previously. DD-WRT is a rolling release, new features come in fast, but you never know what an update breaks. That's why my main router runs on my Openwrt build now.
