If you already own a compatible router and want to upgrade the firmware to Sabai OS, the Sabai Freedom Passport Package is perfect for you. It allows you to install Sabai OS yourself and save money.

Our friendly, South Carolina-based technical support team will be happy to walk you through flashing your current router with Sabai OS. We take the guesswork out of it!

Figuring out which flash "image" is needed for your router while holding your breath and hoping that you choose the right one can be a nerve-wracking process. While we love the DIY-ers, some of us need a little help along the way, and that's where the Sabai team comes in. We are happy to troubleshoot any concerns you have before, during, and after your flash process. This is support done the right way with one-on-one remote technical support.

  • One-on-One remote service makes our support special and convenient. You may be asked to download a program that will allow you to connect to our technicians remotely. If you do not have internet access prior to your session, please indicate this in your original issue explanation.

    Sabai Passport

    Posted by Richard Smith on Oct 16th 2018

    I purchased a pre-flashed router from Sabai 4 years ago and I have nothing but praise for the support that comes as being part of their family. Brilliant company to deal with and they can certainly teach a few companies as to how support should be managed. As technology moves on I thought it was time to update to new router. As I live in the UK, it is not commercially viable for me to buy the hardware directly from Sabai; this is solely due to import taxes etc. Therefore, I purchased my router locally. I decided to go for the Netgear Nighthawk R8000 as it has good reviews. I then purchased the Sabai Passport with the intent of flashing my brand new router.
    It is always a bit nerve racking when you embark on flashing your new router, but really I needn't have worried. The instructions provided by Sabai are so simple to understand even my little granddaughter would be able to do it; in fact, I spent more time getting the new router set up than I did flashing the Sabai Passport.The Sabai Passport was flashed and activated in no time at all, and it works flawlessly with my Netgear R8000 router. Please keep up the fantastic work and support that you give and once more, a huge thank you.

    Firmware Upgrade

    Posted by Unknown on Aug 4th 2017

    A couple of years ago I purchased an Asus RT-N66U from Sabai. It has worked as advertised since. However, I now needed to upgrade my VPN service which required a firmware upgrade. The sales team and technicians at Sabai were very helpful in walking me through the entire process, from product selection to firmware installation and setup. I was down for less than an hour and all went according to plan. I am completely satisfied with the entire process and highly recommend Sabai.

    Expensive but worth it

    Posted by Alain HOFFMAN on Nov 15th 2016

    After fiddling with DD-WRT and battling everytime I had to change VPN server location, I decided to try the Sabai passport.Absolutely no regret. Top support, trouble free installation over DD-WRT fitmware and such an easy set up afterwards. Big thumbs up for this excellent solution!

    Very Happy I Made The Switch

    Posted by CDRSteve on Sep 20th 2016

    I had been considering the switch to SabaiOS (SOS) from PFSense for quite some time but was hesitant because of concerns for potential degraded VPN performance running this OS on my previously purchased Netgear Nighthawk R7000 AP. I have since found that concern to be unwarranted. My PFSense system was running great on a Supermicro 8-core C-2758 atom-based motherboard but was a real challenge (for me) when it came time to reconfigure PFSense functions/features especially in routing specific IP's to VPN. The purchase, download, and installation of SOS on my R7000 via Passport was extremely easy. I was fully configured and up and running in about 30 mins. The real draw to this OS for me was the simplistic process for setting up OPENVPN and routing specific devices to the VPN tunnel. I have noticed no significant VPN performance degradation running SOS on the R7000 through my Private Internet Access (PIA) provider. Though I have only had SOS running for about a month, I am very happy thus far with its performance and stability. There are a couple of functions that I do miss using SOS. There is currently no provision for establishing a dedicated guest wireless network nor is there capability for the OS to send system notification emails to the administrator. For many, these are not vital functions but I have become accustomed to them over the years and they are sorely missed when using SOS. I have discussed this with Sabai Technology and am hopeful these functions will be addressed in future updates. Until then, I have found workarounds and am completely satisfied with the product and have recommended it to other friends and family with compatible hardware and are looking for a change. It is a bit expensive compared to all the free OS options out there but I think the ease of use, functionality, and provided vendor support will justify the cost for most users.

    Good product but ...

    Posted by Chris on Jul 20th 2016

    The Sabai OS itself is in some ways superior to the Tomato Shibby firmware I previously used. My VPN is more stable and is a bit faster than before. However you are only limited to one VPN. To change servers, for example, you have to erase the ovpn file you are using and install another.

    But my biggest problem are the furnished instructions. Of course, they have to be followed exactly to get the Sabai OS to work properly but a few key points are mysteriously omitted from the instructions.

    My VPN requires a sign in to use. There was no mention of how to do this in the instructions and finding it in the online help documents is difficult. Sabai does provide a simple way to add this information but it was not obvious to me and I contacted support for help, which came quickly.

    More egregious is the fact that once you install the OS you need a new login name and password, which are not included in the instructions and is very hard to find in their support documents.. Why this crucial fact was omitted is a mystery.

    Finally, $129 is a bit much to pay for this in my opinion. Of course, if you already have a qualified router it is the cheaper way to go.

    Overall I am pleased with the product and I might even buy the VPN accelerator, although from what little I can find online, may not be value to me. Maybe Sabai could add more detailed information to their site.

    Awesome support and product

    Posted by Unknown on Jan 29th 2016

    I flashed my own Asus N66U, as I had it before I knew Sabai existed. I was looking for a central VPN solution for my house when I found Sabai. Their support is is top-notched and friendly. The VPN Gateway function is awesome and easy to use. You WILL love this product.

    Superb Support, Powerful yet Easy to use Router OS

    Posted by Sheldon W on Jan 13th 2016

    This is my first experience with Sabai OS after having used DD-WRT and Generic Tomato routers and I couldn't be more pleased with the result. I acquired a Netgear Nighthawk R7000 on my own and bought Sabai Passport to flash the router with Sabai OS (simpler for me to get the router this way as I live in Canada and eliminates Customs, duties etc) I selected this option after researching ways for getting openVPN on routers. I've flashed routers with DDWRT and Tomato in the past but the hassle of identifying the correct versions that go with certain hardware and knowing exactly what functionality was embedded in which OS releases was too frustrating and so unclear after browsing through pages of conflicting details on the various blogs and sites for DDWRT and Tomato.

    For a router as powerful and expensive as the Netgear Nighthawk R7000 I wanted support for getting clear answers to my questions even if I could perform the flashing tasks myself. Sabai Passport was the perfect fit for my requirements and included remote support if I needed it.

    The instructions were so clear! I received detailed and prompt responses both before and after purchase that I was able to perform the router flashing + openVPN configuration myself just by going step by step.

    The other key feature unique to Sabai both in function and ease of set up is the Sabai "Gateway" feature. This allowed me to specify which devices connected to the router would use the VPN connection vs regular local internet connection. This selective VPN capability alone is worth picking Sabai over another router OS as it works reliably and so easy to set up or change.

    I've convinced other family members to get Sabai Passport and they're fully satisfied with the service and support as well. Those in the US or people who don't want to perform any tasks preparing a router might prefer just getting the preflashed routers directly from Sabai. But for anyone who can follow step by step it really is simple enough to put Sabai OS on a router on your own with Sabai Passport
