    linksys EA9300 has same procressor hardware, and gpl sources are available:
    (i browsed through them; cfe details not evident; linus 4.1 apparently)

    i still think tomato has the most readily-useful management console of any firmware - so hoping.

    Not gonna happen. Completely different architecture from the other Broadcom devices.

    I think those sources are for the linksys portion.
    The problem is the broadcom portion (wireless driver).
    Tomato can only link a specific version of the linux kernel against the binary broadcom drivers.
