OpenWrt software has two distinct branches: a stable Release build that is suitable for production use, and a Development build that contains an ever-evolving set of enhancements.

Stable Release builds Development Snapshot builds
The Release builds have had significant testing. Use them for production, or for your home where your family will rely on a functioning router. More... Get the latest with a Development build. These contain the latest technology, but may not work well, or at all. Be prepared to supply bug reports, etc. More...

Go to the Table of Hardware or use firmware selector to locate the latest official release firmware for your device hardware.

After you have installed the OpenWrt firmware to your device, you can install additional software packages on your OpenWrt device.

OpenWrt ships with its own complete build system. You can download and compile your own firmware from source, adding advanced tweaks or modifications that can be done only at build time. The OpenWrt build system produces reproducible builds with checksums and Git versioning, all firmware you compile will be exactly the same until you change options or you update OpenWrt sources. Start here if you want to compile your own firmware.

OpenWrt provides convenient tools to integrate pre-built packages into a custom firmware image, striking a good balance between firmware customization and time/resources required. All packages integrated this way will be downloaded from the same online repositories used for updates, so the process will take minutes even on weak PCs. Start here if you want to assemble your own firmware.

If you just want to compile your program and create a custom package without compiling from source a whole firmware for all architectures you want to support, OpenWrt provides a convenient SDK package to do so. Start here if you want to create packages for your own software.

OpenWrt has a number of Buildbot computers building firmware releases. If you are interested in the latest developer snapshot release build activities, you can find the Buildbot activity in the following links:

The master OpenWrt source code repositories reside on the OpenWrt Git server.

The mirror of the master OpenWrt repository is located on GitHub.

The contents of the download server are available on several mirrors as well. Please refer to the list below for alternative locations.

Please only setup a mirror if really needed: e.g. if you don't have good connectivity to existing mirrors, or if you have many downstream users. In all cases, the official OpenWrt download service won't automatically use your mirror.

Space requirements

The total amount of data is 2.6 TB (2.4 TiB) as of January 2024, and it increases by around 600-700 GB per year. The space needed per release is shown below, in GB = 10^9 bytes. Each number adds up all minor releases for a given major release.

Feel free to exclude part of the repository to save space (e.g. ignore older releases) or to save bandwidth (e.g. ignore snapshots since they change daily).

Release snapshots 23.05 22.03 21.02 19.07 18.06 17.01
Size 180 GB 573 GB 714 GB 525 GB 290 GB 207 GB 109 GB

Mirroring with rsync

Use rsync:// rsync:// to obtain a copy of the download repository.

2023-12-18: We had to change the DNS name for rsync to because is now served by a CDN. Please update your mirror setup to use the new name.

Due to current bandwidth constraints we kindly ask you to use something like rsync --bwlimit=8000 when initially pulling the data. Syncing the downloads share every 12 to 24 hours hours is ideal.

Announcing your mirror

Once a mirror has been set up, feel free to announce it at, with details about which part of the repository you sync. It will be published on this page, but this is only a convenience so that users can be made aware of available mirrors: there is no automatic load-balancing system that exploits mirrors. Users can choose to manually use a mirror if they find they have a better connectivity to it.
