    I was happily using my Belkin F7D3302 with tomato 1.28 by shibby 112 build. But when I tried to upgrade it to latest 114 build , no way, it doesn't boot. I tried twice , no use.

    So guys, stick to 112 build on this particular router.

    v114 for F7D3302 has 3624960 bytes, v112 has 3620864 bytes. But v110 has even 3821568 bytes. Well size is not our problem. Changes between v112 and v114 was not a big for branch K26. Most changes was for K26RN and K26RT-AC.

    I will release v115 today. I you want (and can) please test new version and let me know.
    Best Regards.

    Size is not the issue. The model-specific images are only used for initial flashing, after that I use the VPN trx build. I have not even tried the current 114 model specific .bin images, I have a set of some old .bins I use for initial flashing, then move on to the current VPN build.

    The issue is with 114 RT-N .trx builds. The following (and I assume the other RT-N builds) won't work on Belkin F7D3301/F7D7301/F7D3302/F7D7302/F7D4302/F7D8302:
    tomato-K26USB-1.28.RT-N5x-MIPSR2-114-VPN.trx
    tomato-K26-1.28.RT-N5x-MIPSR2-114-MiniIPv6.trx​

    The 114 RT equivalents will:
    tomato-K26-1.28.RT-MIPSR2-114-MiniIPv6.trx
    tomato-K26-1.28.RT-MIPSR2-114-IPv6-VPN.trx​

    114 RT-N Builds do work on Belkin F7D4301/F7D8301 units.

    112 and prior RT-N builds worked on all of these.

    Will try and test 115 later today.

    Tested 115. 115 RT-N builds still do not boot on Belkin 7D3301/F7D7301/F7D3302/F7D7302/F7D4302/F7D8302. RT builds are fine.

    RT-N builds have always been OK in the past. What broke the functionality between 112 & 114? I'd rather see the "standard" RT-N builds working again than have to build a series of model specific images. I had intended to dig into it more, but have been crazy busy recently, and have no pressing reason to upgrade from 112.

    aaaa now i understand. This was propably broken when i merged RT-N and RT-AC branches. Please let me look.

    Hi jerrm !
    Have you tried the latest RT-N build 116 by shibby on your Belkin F7D3302. Because I am using 112 build and want to upgrade if New 116 build has extra features. Please advise.

    RT-N builds 114+ don't work on belkin f7d33xx, f7d43xx, or f7d73xx. RT builds do work. i had many cycles of failed upgrades until i realized this.

    Hi Shibby,
    I have the version 112 on my Asus RTN-66U and is working fine but sluggish sometimes on the 5ghz side.

    @shibby20: Belkin F7D4302 here: I managed to build myself a serial cable, I tested it and managed to get output and input work correctly using Putty.
    Unfortunately the router and PC with the com port is at a remote place, so this is all I could do for now...
    In the fallowing days I'll post the screen output of the router while it tries to boot V116. Is that what you want?
    If the router boots and I get access to a shell can I share anything else? I'm a linux noob so any help would be appreciated!

    Only difference I see is Loading: .. 5100 bytes read instead of Loading: .. 5192 bytes read ?

    P.S.: MAC adress XX'ed also Belkin stock PSK ;)

    No news on this?
    I've tried using K26 (RT) builds, unfortunately, it's completely useless, Wireless Ethernet Bridge mode makes any Virtual Wireless SSID impossible to connect to (They show up fine just impossible to connect). Of course everything works as expected in V112 RT-N.

    BWQ builds thread for F7D4301, I use it now with great success in RT-N VPN+BT variant on F7D4302.
    P.S.: Just sharing some good information here, nothing else! :(

    Using Tomato Anon I spotted this one:
    [​IMG]CanadaBelkin Play N600 (F7D4302/F7D8302) v1120 K26 USBBig-VPN5.110.27.200120 minShibby2014-07-12 10:02
    Also in v121, there is also a Belkin Untested folder... maybe some of you could retest and share the results?
    My main router is a Play Max F7D4301 so can't test it myself... It's nice to see Shibby still trying even with the ARM version taking most of the development time.

    P.S.:

    Also found this one also using RT-N, from what I remember only F7D4301 worked after V114... Come on guys, some feedback is welcome...

    As no one answered, I took the plunge and tested myself...

    Shibby's RT-N fw is again compatible with the Belkins! As RT had (has?) some problems(I think), I'm really happy about this!
