Sorry to maybe ask again this (simple?) question:
I have a WRT54G v4.0 that working with Tomato. I would like to use TomatoUSB, but not sure about the correct build type to use. I have read on http://tomatousb.org/doc:build-types that kernel 2.4 are known to work on Linksys WRT54G v1-v4, but kernel 2.6 works on Linksys WRT54-GL,-GSv4. Cause WRT54-GL is a rebrand WRT54G v4.0, I am not sure which one is the best between K24 or K26.
If I use the NoUSB Std, it is possible to use K26 build on my WRT54G, or it is completely useless because K24 is the right build?
I do not want to brick my router or load something that could slow down or make things difficult.
If you say K24 is the right one and will stay like this for a long time, I will follow the advise.
Also, I imagine K24 will disappear in the future (cause it is a lot of work to create and test 2 different build) and I prefer to begin with the build that will stay for a long term.
Hope you will find my question interesting.
Thanks a lot for your answer.

Because nobody seems to have time to answer, I forget this subject.
Let me try to help you out here:
This is the site about WRT routers:
Your router has 4MB flash so it can accept the firmware this size. Then try to load the K26 no usb Std build onto it. If it fails, don't worry, just follow this site to debrick it:
Just find the correct stock firmware for your router before! This example has a firmware link for the GL version.
So the important steps would be:
-Find the exact model of your router
-Find the stock firmware for your router
-Find info on how to debrick your model
It is the only way for you to be certain.
I put my 54G v4 into the spares box when I went gigabit. However, my cell phones doesn't like the concrete and rebar in the basement wall and converted-from-garage family room when I try to use them in the basement, unless I get within about 10 ft spatially from the E3000.
Since I have network devices down in the basement, I think I'll take the 54G from Polar Cloud v1.25 (what was on it when it went out of service) to tomato-K26-1.28.9052MIPSR2-beta23-Std and use it as another AP (in place of the 10/100 bridge) REAL SOON NOW.
Just to inform everyone that version K26 NoUSB Std works fine on a WRT54G v4.0.
Upgrade tonight and everything was correct. Only one problem: No GUI Administration page.
Just had to shutdown completely my router (remove power cable) to be able to log on WebGUI.
