This morning the long awaited v24 dd-wrt stable relase was.. relased.
Can’t wait to test it, web flashing on my spare Linksys WRT worked like a charm.
On the F*nera front, there’s the usual lack of (updated) information. That’s my conclusion, successfully tested on both 2100 and 2200 models:

Now there is an opposite problem: lots of website speaking about step1.html, kolofonium, CAMICIA build, hex.out and so on but infos are generally confusing cause referring to outdated or too complicated methods (and I’m sincerely too lazy to get them a try).
