Hey Kong can you look into the Firmware Compatibilty errors for the R8000 units manufactured in Vietnam.

Hey Kong hoping to get your attention with this post. Looks like there is a almost universal problem flashing DD-WRT initial builds to the r8000's that were manufactured in Vietnam. Seems the main problem has to do with the Chinese and Vietnamese units having a different board ID (possibly different board revisions although netgear won't admit to anything). If possible can you take a look into this issue and potentially release a updated Initial flash for the Vietnamese units because right now they can’t be flashed using the normal methods (haven't tried telnet yet because of brick risk)

 

Issue has been ongoing for a few months now with no real solution see the original thread here
