    ok this is the first time i have install anything 3rd parties i have been kinda of hasty on this becuase i dont want to mess anything up. im sorry for being a noob please. So i have wrt54gs v4 so i downloaded Hyperwrt_GS_Thibor13d from thibor site and now what do i do. I have tried going to upgrade firmware but it said something about bootvis or something like that. So than i download bootvis and installed it and now when i go to install it goes like 5 little bars and than the fail window comes what am i doing wrong and what do i need to do.

    To upgrade from stock firmware:
    - reset to factory default
    - Upgrade to Thibor 13d for GSv4, using GUI
    - Then upgrade to ordinary Thibor 13d

    Not sure if it is needed, but I always does a "reset to factory default, clear NVRAM"" after every upgrade/flash.

    why on earth would you upgrade to 13d from 13d for gsv4, there is not difference between them except for the codepattern. ndata: if transfer fails, reboot your router before trying again. the thing about bootvis is actually "boot_wait". make sure it's really the gsv4 version you have as the normal one will not flash a v4 running stock firmware

    you "might" want to reboot your connected PC as well before upgrade.

    It worked for me after initial "upgrade failed" message.

    Just my $.02.

    ok - I was running 13c fine until I tried to upgrade to 13d. It failed a few times and I decided to read the forums, and hence rebooted my router. How my firmware won't boot. Flahing power light. I've tried the debricking guide from hyperwrt, but the firmware uploads but the router doesn't boot still. Any ideas? :'(
