[code]https://github.com/Leproide/TD-W8970-NetUSB-Fix-v1-[/code]

The user seems to have got the firmware and so does the Italian forum http://www.hwupgrade.it/forum/showthread.php?t=2518169

no firmware update on TP-LINK on TD-W8970 since 2014 is this firmware a beta or official
Advisable not to flash to this firmware some have said may brick on Hwupgrade


IF YOU STILL WANT TO PROCEED AT YOUR OWN RISK DISCONNECT ADSL WIRE, SWITCH WIFI OFF ON YOUR COMPUTER CONNECT LAN AND BLAST UP INTERNET EXPLORER AND UPDATE NOT ON WIFI
Why hasn't this been released to the public?

Hi!
Leproide here, users bricked their device i think have flashed the v1 firmware on the v3 hardware.

The v1 have 3 antennas, if you have only 2 is the v3 and this firmware is NOT compatible.

I suggest you to install LEDE in any case, updated, more stable and with a tons of options and software and tools :D
I have flashed openwrt on my w8970 and i love it, but LEDE is better maintained from the community.
The only problem is openwrt/lede are compatible only with 1/1.2V and not with the v3.
You not need to open the router, you can use a simple exploit, you can find a tutorial on the openwrt website.

Sorry for my bad english, have a nice day!
