New version of my custom firmware build:

(NOTE: This release does not contain integration of latest stock firmware changes. Too many negative feedback (issues) for release of the stock firmware. But there are several fixes of security issues so it has a sense to perform upgrade from previous version. Thus it is intermediate maintenance release to provide synchronization of changes for R7800.)

Difference vs “HW” version means hardware acceleration of OpenSSL.

Thanks @Voxel for your great work on this FW. Is there any special feature added to

I use the R9000 as IGMP Proxy for my IPTV, looking for any improvement here, since current version running (yours) works pretty good but still makes channels to freeze I change from one channel to another. :)

Last question, is there any new feature in stock FW

Is there any special feature added to
Rather no. Maintenance release. Fixing security and other issues upgrading packages.

Last question, is there any new feature in stock FW
From release notes for

Bug Fixes:

  • Improves system stability
  • Fixes the issue where the speed test fails
New Features and Enhancements:

  • Dynamic QoS database v1.46 update
  • Plex media server v1.14.1 update
  • GUI login password enhancement to support a more secure password

Valuable are fixing speedtes from QoS page and "GUI login password enhancement to support a more secure password". The last is the same what was added to the stock firmware for R7800. But it is rather defense from your home LAN hackers if you have them. People signal problems with attached device list. So I cannot upgrade GUI plus speedtest: they should be upgraded only together, so I'd get attached device list issue.

Plex could be updated from any version of firmware to 1.14.1. QoS - cannot say.

Installed a couple of days ago and working smoothly!
Thanks a lot Voxel for this great work.
