The wait is over! Firmware maestro Kong has released his DD-WRT build for the NETGEAR R8500.
Download it here and post your results and experiences on the R8500 Open Source Firmware forum!
I did flash the R8500 2 times.
I still have a bricked router.
I just flash the dd-wrt.K3_R8500.ckh.
Is it any thing else I mus do.
At this point only the original firmware works.
I see several people. Have bricked their outer with this mod and many unusabe R8500s on eBay for sale. Are there clear instructions for a newbie to install this mod with a 8gb flash drive? I don't see a step by step anywhere. Thanks for the patience and help.
