Lucky for us R8000 owners we have three new builds to choose from! I would like to upgrade from stock but which build to choose? Does anyone out there have an opinion? 

Please way in if you have any experience with the last 3 R8000 builds. Kong, shibby and Tagathiba allave made generous contributions to the forum. How about showing some appreciation and providing some feedback.

Regards,

I'v upgraded from December

I'v upgraded from December build as OpenVPN don't work on the old build.

 

This build has buggy wifi and you can't add additional 5ghz ssid's as defaults to WEP so it's a big no no for me although OpenVPN works,
