I tried to upgrade my Linksys wrt1900acs v2 two times, after both upgrades the firmware release of my router stayed as the same, r40188.

All three of my WRT1200AC also failed to update. After flashing, longer than normal boot and they were still on the July 4th release.

Damn, I thought I lost a router last night, just constant blinking, could not access, could not reset.
1900 V1 was on r40189.

After repeated power toggles managed to get it back to r40189 but when I tried to update to r40260 it just returned to r40189. Tried other recent builds with the same effect. Eventually went way back to last year's smaller builds and was able to update from there to r40260.

Had similar problems with other 1900's and 1200.

My 3200's upgraded without problem.

It appears that something in r40189 and other builds prevents upgrade to anything but the smaller builds.
In short I had to reset to default and then upgrade to a very old (smaller) build before going with r40260.

If it is indeed a size problem, could one upgrade using the "Factory-to-ddwrt.bin", and then install the full version from there?

In one case that is what I did. When I had so much trouble trying to put the new build on, I upgraded with the Stock firmware, then an old build, then upto latest. Found I could simply have gone to the old build, but yes going stock and upgrading progressively also works.

WRT3200ACM V1 r40206 Firefox 67.0.4 (64-bit) webflash

OpenVPN CLIENT works fine (nordvpn server)
5GHz wpa2 CCMP-128 (AES)working fine 20MHz Mixed
2.4GHz wpa2 CCMP-128 (AES)working fine 20MHz Mixed
NAS via USB Samba also working fine

I'm really becoming concerned by those with the 1900's having so much trouble. Perhaps we are reaching the point of "Bloat ware"? Or simply no valid worthy upgrades vs size of the firmware. I'm not seeing any worthy performance upgrades, but the firmware is getting larger for no (seemly) valid reasons.

Well, my position at this point is: If it ain't broke, don't fix it. My setup is pretty basic (no VPN), so my current version, R40134, does all I need it to do. The only issue I have is the unreliability of the "Scheduled Reboot" option, but I can live with that.

I appreciate that BS has updated the kernel and other baseline components, but until the wrinkles that have appeared in recent releases have been dealt with, I'm staying put.

P.S. I think at least one reason for the size increase is the updated kernel--it's just bigger.

Yeah, I'm about at that point myself. I don't think I'm going to upgrade anymore until something seems worthy.

I see a lot of ignoring tickets that folks place in the queue. BS, while I'm sure is working his rear off, seems to push aside a lot of the problems people bring up to him of current and passed issues. And I'm honestly not seeing any performance increases with new kernels and his latest changes. Seems to be getting in the way more then fixing anything.

so i went back to the previous firmware 7-4-19, and tried it upgraade it to current it wouldnt go

So i downgraded back to 6-27-19 using the console to flash and that worked fine.

So then i used the GUI to upgrade back up to the current from 6-27-19 and that also worked fine.

Just notes: figured id do it for the people having issues.

Updated WRT1200ac v1 from r40189 to r40260. Reported update success but no connection or UI available. Re-booted and came up with the r40189(8?) release up and running. I re-installed the r40189 just to remove doubts (installed as expected with no issues).

I've been running r40188 several days with no issues. I have noticed my streaming and downloading seems improved on the r40189 release if nothing else.

I guess this relates to the issue we had a few months back where the firmware was only able to be flashed into one of the partitions due to the size. For whatever reason one of the partitions is slightly smaller than the other. So this is probably either the same thing, or the firmware has exceeded the size of both partitions this time.

Have you tried backing up to 6-27 and flashing from that to the new one?

Back tracking a version would not solve an over sized firmware in the fashion that the older version is smaller so it gives the new version more room, if that is what you are thinking. The partitions are fixed sizes. Whatever space in the partition is unused by a firmware stays unused but is dedicated to only that partition.

However what back tracking any version might prove is that this is once again the issue we faced a couple months ago where the firmware is slightly too big for that one partition that is slightly smaller but fits in the other partition. By flashing another non-over sized firmware into that smaller partition, you are now booting from that smaller partition and will be flashing this current version into the slightly larger partition, thus you will have success flashing it.

This is basically exactly what was found a couple months ago, but rather than using the method of flashing another firmware to swap partitions, we were just using the cmd line commands to change partitions then flash.

This doesn't bode well to those of you who keep your stock linksys firmware in the other partition, because if your stock firmware happens to be living in that larger partition you have no choice but to overwrite it, or wait it out till BS does another build where he has shrunk the firmware down slightly.

yes i remember us doing this a couple months ago, i was just currious cause i was able to get it to flash with the gui froma 6-27 is all is why i asked.

i know some of you keep the other partition with the stock firmware so i know this could be a problem for you guys.
