Asus rt-ac66u: how to install tomato
freshtomato-RT-N66U RT-AC6x-2019.3-AIO-64K is a custom build for the N66 that includes AC66 drivers (hence the RT-AC6x part of the name), which some say improve performance. They seemed to be more stable in my experience, but your mileage may vary.
Otherwise, look under the RT-N branch for RT-N66U builds that have been updated to only function with 64K NVRAM builds (which includes reflashing the CFE, which you’d know if you did because you’d have ruined your underwear doing it), but most people will just go with K26USB without NVRAM 60K builds under “ASUS RT-Nxx & Co” that are classified as K26USB (those are for some odd reason). The filename freshtomato-K26USB-NVRAM32K RT-N5x-MIPSR2-2019.3-Mega-VPN refers to the driver version, not the router model# it supports. NVRAM 32K builds should function in non-modified N66Us, despite the fact that some are classified as such. However, I haven’t done this on an unmodified N66 in a long time (the few that are still in use have had their CFEs reflashed), and the current naming convention seems a little off to me.

WARNING: As of 9-Apr-2013, it appears that more recently produced units come pre-loaded with the 64K v220.127.116.11 CFE, making them incompatible with regular DD-WRT builds. On these machines, flashing a regular DD-WRT build would result in a wall. Since it’s impossible to say the CFE version your computer has while it’s running stock firmware, anyone interested in flashing DD-WRT on it should follow this guide: http://charleswilkinson.co.uk/2012/12/22/dd-wrt-on-the-asus-rt-n66u-with-64k-cfe/ When an official build is available, these instructions should be revised.
30th of October, 2012: RT-N66 CFE The following is a link to a discussion about implementing 64K: I’m not sure this is ready for prime time yet, but if you try it and think it’s ready, UPDATE THIS STATEMENT and share the process, drawbacks, and performance.
As of June 2012, the default DD-WRT installation has almost fully filled the NVRAM. Please be aware of the pros and cons of this problem before it is resolved before installing DD-WRT on this router.

3. Open the firmware restore utility, navigate to the firmware file you downloaded, and begin the upload. When you’re prompted to acknowledge the fact that this isn’t official firmware, press OK. The router should restart automatically after the firmware has been uploaded.
Shibby was recently based on an RT-N66U router. I couldn’t install using the web UI because it rejected the firmware as being incorrect (not signed presumably). The firmware restoration (contained inside a Virtual Box VM) worked perfectly.
I’m new to router flashing/modding and recently purchased a WRT45GL that I’d like to install Shibby on if possible. I’ve spent the last couple of days trying to learn as much as I can about it, but there doesn’t seem to be a lot of straightforward information available. For the time being, I just have two questions…
#2 – Even though it’s not an ASUS, do I have to follow Shibby’s advice in the above post? I have his trx file, but when I try to flash the router’s basic firmware with the trx file, the router complains that it is an incorrect picture!

This ‘Dark Night’ poses a serious risk of bricking, necessitating strict adherence to the installation procedure. There is, however, a built-in and efficient Recovery Mode. In newer CFE models, the NVRAM problem has been resolved (and K3X builds).
Note: despite being the recommended build for many routers in the Router Database, build 40559 is broken for most routers. To get the most up-to-date information on builds, check the forum “New project” (noted Aug 2020).
Spacers (from 1/4″ to 10mm) can be used to raise the case top, making it easier to reach the MicroSD card and improving cooling. To keep the top cover LED lighting in place, use a piece of dark foam and a hole punch.
