There are versions V1 - V3 available now, but the original firmware is really not nice. It's sold worldwide, for around 50 bucks so more people will buy it.

Further information from the GPL source package about the SOC.
#!/bin/bash
cd boards/model_brcm_bcm470x/build
make PRODUCT_NAME=c1200v1_eu iplatform_prep
make PRODUCT_NAME=c1200v1_eu iplatform_menuconfig
make PRODUCT_NAME=c1200v1_eu sdk_menuconfig
make PRODUCT_NAME=c1200v1_eu sdk
make PRODUCT_NAME=c1200v1_eu iplatform

unfortunately, I still do not know which image to install

There is no specific image available for the Archer C1200, neither in OpenWrt nor in LEDE.
There is not a single device with this SoC supported by OpenWrt.
There is only a single device with this SoC supported by LEDE: Tenda AC9.

Not good. Anyway, thank you very much for your reply.

My C1200 v2 (EU) on the latest official firmware is actually running a custom version of OpenWRT 12.09rc1. I managed to enable dropbear and SSH into it and escalated to root to take a look around as I was running into some issues that I wanted to debug. I don't have experience with porting and developing on LEDE/OpenWRT (just as user on my previous routers). Anyone can point me in the right direction to make something out of it?

Thanks.
