Firmware flash

Hi, has anyone figured out how to flash Duma OS software onto the X10?

This does not mean that the firmware will flash.


While many questions about routers are generic and could be answered anywhere, some things need specialist knowledge.

You might get more help, and find earlier questions and answers specific to your device, in the appropriate section for your hardware. That's probably here:

Nighthawk Pro Gaming Routers - NETGEAR Communities

Gaming routers have their own DumaOS operating system that is nothing like the one on Netgear's standard routers.

I will ask the Netgear moderator to move your message.

In the meantime you could visit the support pages:

Support | NETGEAR

Feed in your model number and check the documentation for your hardware. Look at the label on the device for the model number.

You may have done this already. I can't tell from your message.

I mention it because Netgear stopped supplying printed manuals and CD versions some years ago and people sometimes miss the downloads.

Thanks for your interest in DumaOS.


Unfortunately, I'm afraid you won't be able to flash XR700 firmware to an X10. The firmware is locked to the model that it was built for, so it  will only work if you're using an XR700.
