Hi everyone.

Considering that my issues has started since RUX firmware RUTX_R_00.02.00.X and coincidentally with the same firmware release the firmware extension was changed from .img to .bin, can someone tell me why developers do that change?

Just wondering about that....

Thank you...

Windows .img recognize as ISO disk. Icon can be confusing and firmware is not an ISO image.
Sorry... But that's not an answer to my question. I read that .bin and .img have different usage on openwrt firmwares.
It's just naming and openwrt use them both. There is no significant difference.
Not according to online docs, which report that .img files completely erases firmware and replace it, unlike .bin that only upgrade firmware. So, since my issue was started with the first .bin release, I suppose that .img should resolve my issue.
