Tomato for R8000

Hello All,

 

I've recently purchased the R8000 but noticed that the r7000 has Tomato.  Will they R8000 have a release as well since the hardware is very similair?  Anyone have idea or additional knowledge?  If at worse I can return R8000 and get the 7000.  I'm really wanting Tomato for my router.  

 

Thanks for your time and attention,

DD-WRT v24-sp2 (11/25/14) std (SVN revision build r25344)

I'd rather have Tomato but DD-WRT will work for now.

Cheers,

I tried the HMA auto

I tried the HMA auto-installer and it did not work for me. Did you use an automatic installation method from a vpn service provider or the manual setup?

Ah, OK. If you are

Ah, OK. If you are attempting to use OpenVPN Client connection. You have to get the config from the provider. I always set up my stuff manually. Make sure you have logging enabled so you can see where you are getting hung up at. Additional options turn on verbose -5
