TOS 5 still using OpenWrt 19.07, TOS 6 based on 21.02 wasn’t released yet.

Does it make sense to switch to OpenWRT 22.03 on a Turris Omina? Apart from the limitations (no LED support for example).

You loose support and you loose nice features like schnapps and rollbacks

Of course.

You will not loose support or warranty - you can re-flash OpenWrt back to TurrisOS.

21.0 is still at HBL and meanwhile 22.0 is out, We are unfortunately so slow

We’ll, you can have 22.03 with TOS customizations on your Turris Omnia. The only thing you need to do is to switch to HBD. Or, even more advanced: switch to crashlab branche and try TOS with OpenWrt Master (nightly snapshots) :stuck_out_tongue:

Disclaimer: many things will be broken, this is neither for beginners nor medium-advanced users, to be honest (and just like flashing vanilla OpenWrt, so I don’t see any benefit in doing that)

You can switch branches. hbd has 22.03 right now.

nOOb here…but the 5 X TOS is running fine here, has the security patches, so i rather wait till troll victor is using the HBD release, and start debugging, At least then it is adding some usefull work towards the migration to TOS 6. Otherwise it is just the usual moot.

Or, maybe he can buy some open WRT ready router from some Mfg with 200 m/f working on the software ?

OpenWrt 22.03 is stable, HBD is pretty unstable and it’s often updated.

And it will probably be the last thing you do.

Sry, network-stack (WiFi + LAN driver) is from upstream, and as 22.03 is stable, HBD is as well. What may be broken are Turris addons, the basis will work (router/AP).

But I totally second @DIKKEHENK - if you don’t need Wi-Fi 6 yet, TOS5 is totally sufficient.

OpenWrt 19.07 is EOL and 21.03 will be discontinued in February 2023. New kernel and few libraries is not sufficient security support.

If the updated version closes the addressed issues, it IS sufficient (per definition)!

Of course, but that does not happen in the case of 19.07.

I guess we all are hoping for a speedy finalization of TOS6, but since TOS5 is still actively maintained, I rather prefer them doing it right over doing it fast…

I totally agree with you.

Afaik OpenWrt doesn’t officially support switches with more than 1 nic. Please correct if I m wrong. So that’s the main problem aside those leds.

It’s my last experience, but maybe it’s a different now.
