    This is probably a question more appropriate for the firmware modders out there, but I am just curious how you guys are testing out your firmware

    Do you have a test environment setup, or are you risking your router everytime you create a new build? I read somewhere about using bochs -- but couldn't really see an easy way to set up the bochs environment -- any guidance would be much appreciated

    I upload and pray! Usually I try to use the CIFS to test code before I burn permenant changes. That's why I'm doing more and more fun coding on my ReadyNAS and leave the Tomato lean and mean.

    usually I just flash the firmware and if anything goes wrong I use tftp recovery procedure to recover the router if that doesn't work I simply hook the jtag onto the router and flash a new CFE.

    hmm ok -- was hoping for a more protected solution -- unfortunately I don't have a jtag adapter and my one fear is ending up with a router that I can't access through tftp

    thanks!

    9 out of 10 times you can restore it with tftp
