Asuswrt-Merlin dev
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.

The Asuswrt-Merlin developers will take no responsibility for license violation made by third party or end-users running that software on a non-approved Asus device. Any discussion on these forums about such illegal forks will be deleted.

To those who flashed their non-Asus routers with one of these firmware and have bricked their router, I can only suggest that you contact the author of your firmware fork, they're in the best position to help you, as only them know what they did to hack their fork on your model. You won't be getting any help here because any discussion of these firmware is forbidden, period.
