Welcome to FreshTomato

What's FreshTomato?

FreshTomato is an open source firmware project based on Linux, for home and SOHO Wi-Fi routers. FreshTomato is distributed with the GPL license.

Chipset Support

FreshTomato supports systems based on Broadcom chipsets, including ARM- and MIPS-based models.

To see if FreshTomato runs on your ARM- or MIPS-based hardware, please refer to the wiki's Hardware compatibility page.

Recently, an x86_64 variant went into development, and is running. However, not all functions are as polished/functional as their ARM or MIPS equivalents.

The x86_64 version can run on bare-metal (for example, an n100/n305 based mini PC) or within virtualized environments. These include Proxmox, KVM, VirtualBox, VMWare, and more. The X64 variant includes some features not in the ARM and MIPS versions, such as Deep Packet Inspection.

For more information, please visit the x86_64 version website:

FreshTomato features

FreshTomato includes a friendly interface, which is considered easy to use even by inexperienced users. It also offers many features, and security and bug fixes that are not available on stock vendor firmware.

History

Tomato was originally written by Jonathan Zarate, and has been developed over time by the open source community. FreshTomato is currently the most up-to-date fork of Tomato and has about 4 to 5 releases a year.

Releases

Release names are based on the year of the release, then the number of the release (NOT the month or date). For example, release 2023.2 is the second release of firmware in the year 2023.
