How to install the beta version of firmware based on OpenWRT 19.07.5?

Hi guys.

I am trying to compile a program that must work on my X750 Spitz router.

The problem I have is that my Ubuntu machine cannot compile the Toolchain based on OpenWRT 18.06.1; but I could do so for the Toolchain based on OpenWRT 19.07. Since the router’s current OS is based on OpenWRT 19.06, I guess I will have problems at running the program on it.

That being said, I can see that GL-Inet team is working hard on releasing a firmware based on OpenWRT 19.07. The beta version of those efforts (today 9th of March 2021) can be found here:

So, my question is: How can I install that version of the firmware in my Spitz router? And how can I reverse the change in case everything goes wrong?

Thank you very much for the help. slight_smile:

Use the Uboot debrick method to upgrade and also if needing to revert. I’m currently running the goldenorb (rooter) snapshot of 19.07.6 dated 2021-03-09. Only glitch I’m seeing so far is getting some of the leds to work. Seems stable, been running about 4 hours.

You can just download and upgrade in the current firmware.

I personally prefer the Uboot method when jumping between different compiles. Have had weird issues when doing it with the luci browser UI. Things seems not to purge and never know what files and directories have changed locations. Again, just my preference. And this is with all the openwrt routers I use, not just

Hi guys. So, Uboot method is more standard and results in a cleaner installation?

Thanks for the suggestions.
