    Here is a weird one I can't seem to figure out. I am currently running tomato-ND-1.28.5x-108-VPN.trx and would like to flash to tomato-ND-1.28.5x-108-SD-VPN.trx to gain dnscrypt since the firmware should fit in a 8MB flash. After doing a 30-30-30 reset I try to perform the upgrade and the browser replies after about 10 seconds with a file is corrupt error and reboots the router. I also tried to flash tomato-ND-1.28.7634Toastman-IPT-ND-VLAN-Std.trx to it and it failed as well. I even tried dd-wrt.v24_mini_wrt54gs.bin and that failed. All these attempts were done using Safari or Firefox on a Mac, I tried both. I have had good success with these browsers in the past. I redownloaded all the flash files and still no success.

    I do have access to Windows and will try that next. Should tftp be able to hook the router at power on to begin a flash upload? Any other suggestions?

    I was able to tftp a Linksys firmware up to the box during the power on window of opportunity followed by dd-wrt mini and lastly Toastman 7634 VLAN after changing the .trx to a .bin. 30-30-30 in between each flash. This WRT54GSv1 seems to run warmer at stock clock. All is good now.
