FORWARD - To start off, this is a honest idea, a personal opinion, and yes coming from a total N00b So if you are just going to cross talk, troll, neg on everything; please go somewhere else I am not here to demand or even expect further development, but wanted to get a thread started on it! OKAY So yeah , I know and get it is all about the v1 - I f-ing have 23 in my control running some amazing tricks, Spread everywhere from various small businesses and personal clients of mine. But now it seems impossible to realistically get my hands on a v1 and I am sitting on 2 v2 duds. Yeah that's right the box packaging, price and vendor all should have been a v1 and nope.... I was hoping to keep on with my favorite hardware, it's one of my favorite WDS boxes out there. Aftermarket firmware is what I need and I would love to be able to keep on going with what I do now. So being that I am a noob in some areas I was curious and need to ask? Where are we as a community, at obtaining a realistic path to having a Tomato or WRT released for this? I've been following this guy's work here, seemed like maybe he hit a wall with the driver? Started off here - http://techhappens.blog.com/category/hacks/ POC that you can PWN v2 Then it got way interesting here - http://www.wolfteck.com/projects/candyhouse/ Full blown Debian all from a modified stock image with SSH Now I would like to know if it would be possible to turn this work into something "Toastman"-esq ? I can do all of the nerd networking, custom flashing, debricking, iPhone fixing, general whatever... But I am at a loss at the bad-ass-wizardry dev's that hang out here have. Please lets have a honest discussion about it, and if we can be civil that would be great. Thanks so much for all it is that all of you do to Open-the-WRT's out there for people like me to keep making great cheap, amazing, safe home built custom solutions for a world of situations. Your fanboy-pal-nerd-annyoing noob, who couldn't find mention of this anywhere here before.
