first time install on R6300v1

​This is my first time to flash open source firmware to a router .

​I have read the peacock thread at :

​I have also read this install guide where it is recommended to install Kong K3-AC .chk as the inital flash and then upgrade to Kong K3-AC 25915-SP1 (.bin) :

​later in the article it says that  Kong K3-AC 25915-SP1 is no longer recommended and that the following build has no issues :

​My question is can I use the  dd-wrt.v24-31277_NEWD-2_K3.x_mega-R6300.chk as my inital flash instead of the Kong K3-AC and then update using the dd-wrt.v24-31277_NEWD-2_K3.x_mega-R6300.bin to upgrade {or is the mega.chk already enough} or would I have to flash with Kong K3-AC first then update to dd-wrt.v24-31277_NEWD-2_K3.x_mega-R6300.bin.
