HyperWRT to pre5 ?

    I'm considering moving to dd-wrt prefinal 5
    now, I have a well functioning setup with
    Firmware Version: v3.37.6 - HyperWRT 2.1b1
    and would like to know how to safely move
    from that to there

    I've read the sticky and it made me cautious!

    do I have to go back to linksys v3.37.6 first?
    or something else ?

    thanks!

    You should have o problem - just load and go!!

    Seriously, I have moved a few - both to and from hyperwrt with no problems..

    The boot with DD-WRT takes longer, just make sure it is all done, the power light is back on steady before you do anything.. You will see what I mean, it seems to have to cycles where the power light flashes when you boot it

    I've never had problems flashing from Sveasoft, HyperWRT, and Pre4 of DD-WRT. Do it from a wired computer and it's always good to do a 30-second reset afterwards.

    I take my statement back about not having trouble...

    DO NOT ATTEMPT TO FLASH TO THE LATEST PRE5!!!

    It bricked my router beyond my de-bricking abilities. I'm not sure why either... Everything seemed to go normally until it rebooted. I was flashing from HyperWRT 2.1b

    oh, gawd, I'm so glad I checked before actually doing it...

    so, anybody knows how to safely go from hyperwrt to dd-wrt ?
    (it doesn't have to be pre5)

    thx

    You should have no problem...

    I just took one of my WRT54G (2.2) from DD-WRT pre5 to HyperWRT 2.1 then back to DD-WRT pre 5 with no problem.

    What version of Pre5 did you go to? The one from May 22?

    alright, I did it and it functioned perfectly well!
    (I have a GS and I used pre5 from May 22)

    *phew*

    After trying some more today (when I'm more awake and can more easily cross pins 15 and 16 I was finally successful. I got my router flashed to good old Satori 4 right now. I'm going to give prefinal5 another go. Hopefully I'll have better luck this time.
