Hello!
Before anything else: I have read the announcements!


Ok, let's keep going.
I am currently using a WRT54G v6 (Broadcom, micro-version only).
I learned that DD-WRT v24 SP1 is already obsolete, and that I should upgrade.
Indeed, it's very buggy in my router and consumes a LOT of CPU.

Reading the announcements, I found recommendations for both the EKO build 11296
and also an update telling to use the UPnP-fixed EKO build 12307 or
BrainSlayer build 12319.


What version should I use?
Thank you in advance!

Follow up:

After reading a few more posts, and some good feedback from many people,
my currently preferred build for flashing is EKO NEWD 12476 micro.
(router's corerev=9)

This is my first "beta" flashing, so forgive me for all the questions.
I just want to deal with all the doubts.

Is this build ok to go?

I would put 11296 on the router first. Run it for a week or so, and then decide if you need to upgrade. If you do consider 12307 or 12360. The latest builds will probably work fine, though, if you choose to go that way, but I would start with an old and reliable build.
