    I have currently running tomato-RT-N66U_RT-AC6x--114-AIO-64K and want to upgrade to

    Do I need to clear the NVRAM?

    Is the paragon NTFS driver used as default driver or do we need to activate it with a script like on the video on you homepage?

    1) After flashing the 115 firmware all my settings were gone, that's not to say it will happen to you but be prepared for it.

    2) It does not seem to be using the Paragon NTFS driver by default.

    Got the answers from shibby in another post

    1) No, clear NVRAM is not needed
    2) Paragon is default NTFS Driver

    Yes you HAVE to. Upgrading Firmware is always linked with erasing nvram Settings and values due to changes in Firmware the Syntax of some values might have changed.
    To Keep upgrading comfortable I can recommend opening all pages of your router in your browser, upgrade and afterwards open a new Window and do copy&paste from old Settings to the current configuration

    You can see neccessary steps here:

    So you will Need to Change the automount Setting to no e.g. and create a custom script with the commands shown in the Video and paste it in "Administration -> Scripts -> Startup scripts" e.g.

    1) between 114 and 115 was not too much changes well all should works correct without erasing nvram setting.

    2) yes, Paragon is default NTFS driver. You don`t need to do nothing if you are using automount script. If you want mount drive manually just use command "mount -t ufsd /dev/<your_drive> /nas (or other mount point).

    @darkknight93 - this movie was created before release 115 to show difference of speed between ntfs-3g and paragon driver. In v115 K26RT-AC builds ntfs-3g driver was replaced by paragon driver and automount works automatically using ufsd driver.

    wrong. This router has 2 flash: 2MB sflash and 128MB nand flash. This is why Tomato shows 1MB (detect 1st flash bone). I can force to always show 128MB of flash but this is only cosmetic change.

    AC66U build is very stable if you will do all correct after erasing nvram - look on my youtube channell. Thats all.

    Ah thanks for clarifying the Flash diffs.

    Update: I followed reboot on your youtube video and does make things stable.

    Hi since you didnt reply to my PR I made on your site.

    Can I ask why we cant have the new pppoe driver in your latest firmware? as the one you removed adds 1500mtu support on pppoe. Even the one you removed is old, there is now much newer versions.

    I have a RT-N66U on firmware 115, and my flash drive is being mounted as fuseblk, my upload to it is pretty much a steady 3.0MB a sec. The Drive is capable of much more.

    Is there a problem with 5GHz on the N66u? It's seems to crash sporadically on the 115 build.

    Because you installed K26RT-N build. Paragon driver is only in K26RT-AC builds.
