Voxel's Custom Firmware for NETGEAR X10 R9000 (1.0.2.33HF)

Voxel's custom firmware build for the NETGEAR Nighthawk X10 R9000

Notes from Voxel:

1. More optimal compiler options are used for compilation to utilize full power of router’s CPU/FPU (Alpine AL-514, Cortex-A15).
2. New toolchain (compilation tools) is used (stability, more optimal codes).
3. SSH server is included (dropbear).
4. Possibility to extend the functionality of router with additional
software packages (Entware-ng/Entware-3x, more than 2000 additional
packages and/or chroot-ed Debian).
5. OpenSSL is optimized with assembler optimization, so OpenVPN should work much faster.
6. Possibility to use own CA/CERT/KEY/DH files for OpenVPN (your own OpenVPN server settings)
7. Additional packages such as e.g. Transmission, bittorent cient with its own GUI, dnscrypt-proxy (your privacy) etc.
8. Upgraded a lot of old packages used in stock FW to most recent
versions taken from OpenWRT/LEDE. I.e. increase of stability, speed,
closed security holes, corrected bugs.
