Anybody running Tomato on a WRT600N v1?

    I recall a long time ago there were a few threads about this but I thought I'd ask in case someone was able to get it working.

    The individual components (BCM4705 CPU, BCM5397 switch, BCM4321/BCM2055 wireless card) seem to be supported in various routers separately but not together in one device. Is it too naive to think it might work without being officially supported? Anybody tried?

    Thank you.

    i have two of wrt600v1 that i'd love to have tomoato on, and i've also wondered what they problem is. i have (had) a wrt350 which was always problematic for custom firmware because the the ethernet ports required something special to be mapped on bootup. i am wondering if wrt600 is similar. mine are on dd-wrt now, and later builds of have problems. i'ev already irreversibly (because i fried the serial port too) bricked ny wrt350n by trying to put a standard tomato on it.

    Hi, is impossible to flash wrt600n and 350n with tomato, if so you brick it, i have both of them and run with dd-wrt, they are fantastic machines on par with anyone of modern ones. wrt600n has two radios and a-b-g-N, check my avatar pic and sign. really would be great to have tomato on them.

    My background is in ASICs/FPGAs not software but I don't mind playing with make files and compilation environments if that's all that is needed.

    What is required to support a new device (assuming the drivers for the components are available)? Where can I check to confirm that the drivers are indeed available?
