    if i am right....ONLY the "generic" version is supposed to be flashed from the GUI and all other (dd-wrt) firmware versions need to be flashed with tftp ?

    If this is right - i urge BS that he renames the files in his releases so its clear whioch files ONLY to flash with tftp and which ones from the GUI.

    I also have some confusion because i heard something like "the std" versions should only be flashed AFTER the mini versions...or something like that.

    I had a HELL of a time yesterday flashing the "std".....i did a tftp and tried to flash the 11/10 std....and for some reason which totally eludes me i (again) had a NICE brick.

    "NICE" because it took me over an hour and including repeatedly pin 15/16 shorts....which did NOTHING.....repeatedly trying to tftp (LED was flashing so i thought its in safe mode)...and trying to use the linksys auto update utility.

    I was almost positive the router was gone forever (because shortening 15/16 didnt do anything either)...light just kept blinking and blinking....but then after approx one hour or so all of a sudden i succeeded with the tfp and the router came back to life.

    () can we havfe a little comprehensive flash-guide HOW/WHEN to flash what firmware version....eg. can i even use the std on my V2 or does it use too much memory.....and when to initiate the tftp (right after boot ???) and what exact versions to flash from GUI/tftp and in what order ?
