OpenWRT installed just fine, but now I know why the Asus comes with a 5V power supply. Or at least I think I know, because I fried my USB stick. So I'm guessing that, while the router uses a switcher to generate the correct CPU and logic voltage, it passes the input power straight through to the USB port. There goes 8GB and several hours worth of setup. Shit.
