The OpenWrt community is proud to announce the newest stable release of the OpenWrt 22.03 stable version series. It fixes security issues, improves device support, and brings a few bug fixes.

Download firmware images via the Firmware Selector or directly from our download servers:

An upgrade from OpenWrt 21.02 or 22.03 to OpenWrt 22.03.1 is supported in many cases with the help of the sysupgrade utility which will also attempt to preserve the configuration. A configuration backup is advised nonetheless when upgrading to OpenWrt 22.03. (see “Upgrading” below).

The OpenWrt Project is a Linux operating system targeting embedded devices. It is a complete replacement for the vendor-supplied firmware of a wide range of wireless routers and non-network devices. See the Table of Hardware for supported devices. For more information about OpenWrt project organization, see the About OpenWrt pages.

Sysupgrade can be used to upgrade a device from OpenWrt 21.02 or 22.03 to 22.03.1 and configuration will be preserved in most cases.

:!: Sysupgrade from 19.07 to 22.03 is not supported.

:!: There is no migration path for targets that switched from swconfig to DSA. In that case, sysupgrade will refuse to proceed with an appropriate error message:
Image version mismatch. image 1.1 device 1.0 Please wipe config during upgrade (force required) or reinstall. Config cannot be migrated from swconfig to DSA Image check failed

None so far.
