Has anyone had any success rooting the ASUS brand of OnHub? I only see year-old how to's on the TP-LINK version, and they are different machines and frankly I'm not sure if that method even works on the TP-Link any longer. Thanks!

Why do I want to root it?
1. Use the speaker - install shairport, and now you've got an airplay speaker. (Could make it work for google play probably, too.)
2. Add VPN server so I can connect to my network from away.
3. SSH server
4. Repurpose amazon dash without running another server
5. Enable the USB port! USB Drive anyone?
6. Play with the LED - Blink Blink Blink (twitter notifier?)
7. ???

I would also like to know this. The guides I see for root and developer mode are all for the TPlink.
