Firmware beta 4.2.3 on Flint

I would like to know what changes were implemented in firmware 4.2 for the Flint router? Has there been an update to the OpenWRT version?

It is possible to install the beta version keeping the settings of the previous version, 4.1.0?

I apologize for the English, but I’m using Google translator

Stable and Beta builds usually come with release notes. You first need to download the beta firmware and go to upgrade in the GUI. Next do local upgrade and upload click release notes. You do not need to install. Snapshot usually does not have release notes

It would be nice if they posted what SECURITY Updates have been done since 4.10 once they decide to call 4.20 Stable for the Flint. Personally I don’t need any of those added remote services features (Which I view just as added vulnerabilites)…But it would be nice to see if any SECURITY upgrades/fixes have been applied since 4.10.


The Openwrt version is not updated. But fix various bugs and setting failures accumulated from 3 months ago.
