I am wondering the same thing. Does this firmware support the WRT160Nv1? Is there a way to test it without bricking the router if it fails? If so, I will try it.
I'm also interested in WRT160N V1 support. Does it work with an R1 image ? I have a RS232 / TTL convertor on it to do some tests if it can help.
I have tryed and it works.
You have to use tomato-ND-1.28.8752-Std.rar and buy a TTL / RS232 converter on ebay (few euros) and solder it (find a tutorial on google).
Connect your computer COM port to the RS232 converter plugged on the WRT160N (not a crossed cable)
Connect your computer Ethernet port (forced IP 192.168.1.10) to WRT160N ethernet 1
Then use Hyperterminal (115200 bauds, 8, no parity, 1 stop bit, no flow control)
Press ctrl+c during WRT160N boot -> you will get the CFE> prompt
Prepare a TFTP client with tomato-ND-1.28.8752-Std.trx to 192.168.1.1
Run command flash -noheader : flash1.trx on the WRT160N then start the TFTP client.
Wait and enjoy :-)
I have restored to official WRT160N_1.02.11_001_US_code.bin firmware then I have tryied the web update to tomato-ND-1.28.8752-Std and it worked.
You can try it but NO GUARANTEES. If it kills your WRT160N, buy a convertor and apply my previous reply to unbrick or catch the TFTP wait (few seconds on boot).
The command is flash -ctheader : flash1.trx with an official firmware.
I hove that my replyes will be usefull. Good luck.
I just tried it as well, and it seems to be working. It reports as Linksys WRT300N v1.
I ultimately had to go back to DD-WRT. Every couple of day, the Wifi would quit working and the router would have to be reset. Sometimes the Wifi would remain connected, but without internet. Other times the Wifi network would completely disappear.
