1) That would be great and it would help the wireless driver development testing on a different system too. I will be releasing a new updated rootfs with a .16 driver variant and some additional preconfigured scripts.
2) I can't see why not it looks like there is a serial console on that router for u-boot access.
2) Perfect :-) (they even offer a hacker-perk in order to get exactly those things done)
1)It will take ca. 1-2 weeks before I'm ready to start (other personal projects atm). When will you have finished development of your new updated rootfs?
First some questions:
1.1 Is a openssh-server included in the image? I'm a friend of editing config-files rather than command-line instructing.
1.2 README.md states "WRT1900AC V1 (NO FAN CONTROL)". Is this correct (as v1 does have a fan that is for sure needed)?
1.3 Your current wiki doesn't include a guide how to revert to openwrt/stock firmware.
1.4 Why debian (or another full linux system) would be a must-have for me: Data security is not only about securing your internet-connections, but also doing a Full-Disk-Encryption (FDE) (with unlocking via SSH). If you've ever been a victim of burglary you will understand my concerns about this topic.
And at least that part is not practicable with openwrt - even mounting of a externel dm-crypted drive is difficult...
