WRT1900AC was announced on 6th of January 2014 as a router developed to be used with OpenWrt. Despite Linksys announcement of working with OpenWrt community no patches and no info was shared for the next months.
- On the 3rd of April Belkin posted link to ftp server containing patches adding WRT1900AC support. They couldn't be applied because of being incorrectly posted, not signed off and adding binary wireless driver
- 5 days later a patchset in the form of single e-mail was posted to the openwrt-devel. It was malformed and not signed off, so still couldn't be applied. Release of wireless driver has been postponed.
- Linksys started shipping on 10th or April
- Wireless driver was announced to stay closed source on 30th of July. It'll likely consist of pre-built closed source part (so called "library") and probably some open source file calling kernel APIs.
At this point it is not possible to compile a fully working (including WiFi) customized OpenWrt build for WRT1900AC.
