Successfull install of dd-wrt Kong-Mod for R6250

I'm the happy owner of a R6250 and just installed the Kong Mod (from: https://www.myopenrouter.com/download/dd-wrt-kong-mod-netgear-r6250-2016...) on my router.

Firstly, I seeked help in forums (here: http://www.dd-wrt.com/phpBB2/viewtopic.php?t=51486)

And then I used the old installation guide for my R6300, because I'm a newb  (here: https://www.dd-wrt.com/wiki/index.php/Netgear_R6300#Guides) and it's years in between flashing my fw. Though I made a 30-30-30 reset as the first reset, instead of the 'regular' factory reset.
Everything seems in order, though the Netgear logo doesn't light - which is okay, then I save some milli-amps when it's on ;-)

Now it's time to see if it behaves properly. Mad props for all people working on this and discussing this on these fora - then it's actually an option to use google and find proper instructions! ;-)

Cheers Rasmus

You will love Kong on your R6250.  I've been using it for months.  Zero signal drops and zero slowdowns.

Anyone know how to turn on

Anyone know how to turn on the Netgear Logo? Just wondering, I know you can turn it on using serial commands from telnet but thats only temp until it reboots.

Looking for a more perminant solution.

I asked Kong this question

I asked Kong this very question last year.  Here is his reply.....

Hi Mastec,
I know the lights are not working, unfortunately I did the port
without a router and I know it is not possible to control them via gpio
commands, in such a case there is a problem with gpio init which we can
fix if we have the hardware in order to test a few register hacks.
