Cool. Now let's hope the hardware compatibility chart is better managed/clearer. Luckily for me, instructions for de-bricking were easy to find (and worked at 2nd attempt) but I'd gladly flash my wrt1900ac again as the linksys firmware is simply pathetic (both options a stability).
The OpenWRT and LEDE open router projects have merged and promised a major release in the coming months. OpenWRT was, for years, the only serious open source codebase for router firmware, allowing users to overwrite vendor firmware, either for security reasons or to conduct their own low-level development. LEDE was created in …

All that's happened now is that the OpenWRT project owners have admitted defeat, handed over the cherished brand and allowed the project to be managed in the more open way that the LEDE guys wanted.

I'm really glad the LEDE and OpenWrt projects have found a way to continue together. This FOSS O/S for small (and embedded) devices, as well as offering great functionality, is actually updated and gets security patches. More power to the developers collective elbows!
I've been a long-time user of OpenWrt and moved to LEDE after the schism, and the base software plus the LUCI web-interface work very nicely on my small flock of WiFi routers. I just wish the SoC and small device manufacturers could be a bit more helpful to the developers.
