setup D-link DIR-615 revision E4 with firmware 5.10 to dd-wrt

step for update firmware dir-615 e4 to dd-wrt v24sp2

Basically, what you need to do is to check what is the hardwareID of the E4. How to do it is by looking at the original D-Link firmware from the D-Link Taiwan website (only the D-Link Taiwan website has the E4 firmware at the moment). Download and open the original D-Link firmware (download links are below) and open it using a HEX editor (i use ghex2). Scroll down all the way to the bottom of the file and you will see the hardwareID (it should read AP99-AR7240-RT-091105-01). Now, compare the hardwareID of the original D-Link firmware (DIR615E3_E4_FW510B09.bin) with the DD-WRT firmware (dir615e4-factory-to-ddwrt-firmware.bin). Edit the DD-WRT firmware to have the same hardwareID of the original D-Link firmware. For me, i only had to change the last digit from 5 to 1.

find hex editor for edit firmware dir615e4-factory-to-ddwrt-firmware.bin
sudo aptitude install ghex
