Default Flashing question

Hey guys, just curious what version you can come from of official to go to Merlin's code. I currently have stock 3.0.0.4.260 installed on my RT-AC66U and tried to flash RT-AC66U_3.0.0.4_264.22 and got an error from the device. I was able to reboot without anything bricking but I'd love to get this code on my router

Do I have to upgrade incrementally from say 260.21? Or should I try to re-download again and try flashing to 264.22 from 260 stock? Any help is greatly appreciated!

**EDIT** Here is that actual error I'm getting ... I tried a few times just in case including rebooting the device "Firmware upgrade fail. It may result from incorrect image or error transmission. Please check the version of firmware and try again"

Are you positively sure you didn't download the fw for rt-n66u or rt-n16 by mistake?

The actual file I grabbed is RT-AC66U_3.0.0.4_264.22.zip

-rw-r--r-- 1 spent staff 24949853 24 Dec 08:40 RT-AC66U_3.0.0.4_264.22.zip


tried re-downloading it as well ... same error

OMG hold on .... maybe unzip the archive? close this thread before I embarrass myself more ... sorry I'm so used to flashing eveything from zip to img to specific dd to memory locations I assumed I just flashed the zip

Hu,
Dumb question but you unzipped the file and used .trx the f/w file to update, right? I never have any trouble switching back and forth between dffreent f/w versions. ASUS, ASUSWRT or Tomato or whatever.
