Hello. Has anyone tried to install OpenWrt firmware on our router?
OpenWRT installation process:
Download the sysupgrade image (from the OpenWRT-24alpha folder)
Download the TRX image (from the openwrt-initramfs-trx-for-web folder)
Install the downloaded TRX image via the AsusWRT WEB panel
Change the IP address on your computer to and wait 60...120 seconds
Through any browser, open the OpenWRT WEB panel at
Open the OpenWRT upgrade menu and install the sysupgrade image
Wait 60...120 seconds and you can configure the router at

Process of returning to stock AsusWRT:
Open the OpenWRT update menu and install the stock firmware image
Change the IP address on your computer to and wait 60...120 seconds

You will do everything described above at your own peril and risk! I disclaim all responsibility.

I installed this firmware myself, but could not figure out the Open Wrt interface.
This device has 3 revisions: A1, B1, B2
OpenWRT firmware will only support Bx revisions.
rev.A1 contains ipq8074 chip (soc ver 1.x)
rev.Bx contain ipq8074A chip (soc ver 2.x)
It's almost pure Linux. Your own operating system. In skillful hands, any problem can be solved.
Tread carefully - it's not supported on the 23.05 releases yet, so one is living on MASTER for this target...

It's still very much a work in progress - a lot of potential on the QualcommAX targets, but like anything on MASTER, I wouldn't use this as a primary router - good for testing, though...
