Default (solved) Stupid question about updating firmware

Sorry for the stupid questions but i could not find the answer after an hour reading posts about merlins firmware.

1. can this just be flashed like a normal update? or do we need to do the 30/30/30 reset. (i'm an old dd-wrt user)

2. depending on how we flash will will loose all our settings? and / or can we restore a backup of our settings?

Thank You

Great work by the way. Stock ROM on steroids. maybe the build should be called live strong? LOL

it can be done like normal software , if you go from 32mb to 64mb version you will lose your settings , other than that no problems

If you have an RT-N66U and your firmware is older than 3.0.0.4.220, then you will have to reconfigure everything as Asus changed the settings storage method.

This doesn't apply to the RT-AC66U, your settings will always be preserved.

Interesting trivia: in the early days, as this was just "Merlin's build", I was considering to call this "Asuswrt Regrowth", as a reference to the fact that Asuswrt is based on Tomato, except they took away some features, and my initial work was to "grow back" some of these features into the firmware. Since everyone were already referring to it as "Merlin's firmware", I figured I would avoid confusion by just going with Asuswrt-Merlin.
