R9000 FIRMWARE 01.0.5.26

Nighthawk app recommending I upgrade the firmware in the R9000 router to 1.0.5.26 but I never like to do that without first reviewing the release notes and forum comments.  No release notes available and I cannot find any comments.  Anyone have any comments on this firmware upgrade?

I'm a bit impressed by this statement. Its one of the things we frequently recommend but so rarely see in action. Thanks for renewing my faith in humanity Smiley Happy 

 

I've seen a couple posts on it but you're always going to see a few after every firmware update. There's always a few that have issues.  I'd make a backup of your current configuration and try updating it. If there's issues, you can always downgrade, factory reset, and reinstall the backup.  That'd be the route I'd go. 

 

Again, thanks for due diligence and giving me faith in helping others again.

Looks like the latest release notes are:

[Security Fixes] This firmware addresses security vulnerabilities.

Lack of planning on your part does NOT constitute an emergency on mine.
