GL-MT6000 switching to OpenWrt

Hello all,

I would like to know what are the recommended steps for switching from GL.iNet OEM firmware to OpenWrt, from the OEM webUI or u-boot bootloader?

Please also specify which file should be used for both variants, sysupgrade.bin or factory.bin?

The idea is that I would like to find out what is the healthiest procedure for this update firmware!

keep gl uboot. because it is easier to recover as it has a webui

always use sysupgrade.bin

If you need to go back or a softbrick occurs, restore according to the tutorial on the gl website to recover using uboot.

Edit: In fact, I even recommend installing pure OpenWRT using uboot, it is safer against errors and provides a CLEAN installation
