The new lynksis E3000 is just a renamed 610v2 and id love to see it supported.
Id like to try if the normal build works on it, but im afraid of bricking it.

Thats why id love to see it supported, not identical, but very similar. Anyway thanks for the answer, and keep up the good work, hope its supported soon.
My old router was a wrt54gl, but with Fios i needed a change, but once you've tried tomato, you dont want anything else.
Building the image for E2000/E3000 supporting 60K nvram is not a problem (anyone who can compile the firmware from git sources can do this) - but until I finish dual radio support, I won't be making official releases for this router.
Hope everything goes ok, so you dont find too many difficulties and it can be released soon.
Thanks for this great project.
I've found that the latest version of toastman's modded tomato firmware now has builds for the E3000 and E2000 routers, just posting it so if someone finds it usefull as me, until your version (teddy_b) with dual band support is finished.
Please be aware that although the Makefile now includes targets for building E2000 and E3000 builds (you can make such a build yourself by running make with "e3000" target, for example) - I HAVE NOT TESTED THEM YET (and I doubt Toastman has any of these routers to test them either - so you might be the first one to try). So if you use these builds - do it at your own risk, and make sure you can unbrick your router if needed.
Thanks again teddy for the advice.
Ill wait until a safe build, or tested build appears, if i have to wait too long ill try it and learn about serial console just in case :p
The 60K NVRAM seems to create incompatibility with existing builds from what I've read above. Can someone explain to me:
1. In the long run is it better to have the 60K NVRAM? I run a couple of VPN services and have had a problem with maxing out the NVRAM on my WL-500GPv2.
2. Is there an argument that the WRT610v2 is a better buy than the E3000, in terms of greater compatibility?
