Where can I download source for XWRT-VORTEX

Hi all,

I installed R7000 XWRT-VORTEX firmware on my R6250, and this is by far the firmware that gives the best performance for Wifi on my router. I cloned the source code from https://github.com/RMerl/asuswrt-merlin.ng but it does not seem to contain needed declarations to build the R7000 version of this firmware. Anyone knows where I can get the source code that was used to build the firwmware that is available in the downloads section of myopenrouter?

    "Asuswrt-Merlin contains

    "Asuswrt-Merlin contains numerous proprietary components that are only
    licensed for legal use on original Asus devices. These include (but are
    not limited to) components from Asus themselves, Broadcom, Trend Micro
    and Tuxera. Using any of these components on devices for which they
    haven't been licensed for is ILLEGAL."

So, there is no source code because it is not legal.

Look here, we talked about before.

So this isn't truly free and

So this isn't truly free and open - yet it's at the top of the home page myopenrouter.com ?!?!  wtf?  I've kind of taken this as an endorsment to a point.  Now myself and others have had issues just trying to uninstall it, and trying to get dd-wrt up and running again.  (no luck yet)  Why would myOPENrouther have porpritary firmware on their opening page?
