Which Version of Shibby for WRT320N

Discussion in 'Tomato Firmware' started by Bill_S, Mar 11, 2013.

    I have a WRT320N router that is currently running DD-WRT v24-sp2 (12/19/09) mini but I would like to install Tomato Shibby. According to the router listing on Shibby’s page the WRT320N is supported using the K26 build.

    When I went to the K26 download page for the latest version(s) of Shibby (build 5x-108-EN) I really got confused with all the versions but no explanation as to what they were or which routers they could or could not be used on. There were bin files and trx files which one(s) could I use on my WRT320N and could use the update gui in DD-WRT to install the new firmware?

    Would someone be able to answer my questions?
    Thanks

    Thanks, but I am still confused, I see bin files and trx files and I file names having E2000 and E3000 or F5D8235v3 or tomato-K26-. The TomatoAnon database only tells you the Tomato build and the kernel.
    Can you tell me which one(s) I should use?

    Rename .trx to .bin and try again.

    I would flash Toastman with RT-N drivers.

    Once he has tomato on the wrt320n, he could use shibby's build with RT-N driver as well.

    Not sure what you mean, trouble reading my previous post?

    Which build? Shibby doesn't have one, like for the E3000. You compile it yourself fine but Toastman has every flavor for every build for every router.

    I renamed the .trx file to .bin and used the gui on the router to update the firmware and it ran for a little over a minute and then bricked the router. I attempted to "unbrick" the router but it is toast.
    I have a Netgear WNR2000v2 that I would like to install Shibby on but it too has been flashed with DD-WRT and when I tried to install the Shibby build using the gui it said it the firmware was incompatible so I changed it from .trx to .bin and tried again but it said that was incompatible. Does this have something to do with the routers being flashed with DD-WRT? If so, how can I fix this so that I can flash the Shibby builds?

    Which version did you use for the Netgear WNR2000v2? Post the exact filename.

    Weren't we talking about the Linksys WRT320N?

    Yes, we were talking about the WRT320N but that is bricked now so I was trying to do the Netgear WNR200v2 that I had as a backup. I used tomato-K26-1.28.RT-MIPSR2-108-Max starting with it as a .trx file then changing it to a .bin file.

    I've had problems twice on older routers (actually bricked them) as many other people did, flashing Shibby as first Tomato or 3rd party fw. Shibby also suggests to flash something else before upgrade to his.

    I suggested flashing Toastman.

    Next time get an ASUS router since you can always recover them with the Restoration Utility.
