OpenWRT on Buffalo WZR-HP-G300NH 10.03.1

I browsed the OpenWRT website today and noticed that the final release of version 10.03.1 of OpenWRT was made available yesterday!
So I downloaded http://downloads.openwrt.org/backfire/10.03.1/ar71xx/openwrt-ar71xx-wzr-hp-g300nh-jffs2-sysupgrade.bin and then logged into my router running 10.03.1-rc6, navigated to the “System” tab, then the “Backup/Flash Firmware” tab, then clicked “Generate archive” to take a backup of my configuration, and then submitted the firmware image I downloaded above.
The flash procedure takes several minutes – the first minute or two the router appears to be functioning as normal – and traffic still flows through the router as if nothing has changed. But eventually the router reboots – and takes a little while to power up.
One the router is back up my attached computers (Windows 7 and Ubuntu server) did not detect that the Ethernet was back up – so I unplugged all the Ethernet cables in the back of the router and plugged them all back in.
Running fine now!
