    I am currently running v1.21 and would like to upgrade to 1.23.

    Can I save my current configuration and restore after upgrade to 1.23?

    I don't want to brick my WRT54GL but there are too many settings that
    have to be transferred over manually ?

    Any support will be appreciated.

    From the Polarcloud website...

    ...if, after after upgrading, you begin to run into problems, reset your device and re-input your settings.
    FWIW, I've never had a problem upgrading to a newer version.

    You won't brick your router, so don't worry. Just if anything funny happens, remember to erase. If you swap to another developer's version, then you MUST erase.

    Before flashing from vanilla to any mod, or vice-versa, I would reset to defaults.

    The op asked about upgrading from vanilla to vanilla.

    Oh, well I figured I would inquire too. :biggrin:

    Its a good thing Tomato is indeed nvram safe. One thing I hate about DD-WRT is that it is strongly advised to clear upon each upgrade because of its instability, which drove me up the wall with my QoS settings I had.

    As for the speedmod, Rod said his speedmod versions are nvram safe wit hthe original Tomato firmware. Nothing in the nvram is touched (afaik), so you could flash back and forth between his vanilla (not Victek's mod I must add) and the regular without repercussions.
