No. Getting a different arch up is a pita the first time.

Simplest thing to do is just add ceropackages to your feeds.conf, and build
sqm-scripts and luci-app-sqm for cerowrt's qos system, and/or
add override packages for things like dnsmasq with dnssec.

Is there something else besides that you wanted?

I just built cerowrt semi-successfully for the archer c7v2, steps needed
were complex... and took me most of a weekend. I will try to write them
up, but basically you need cerowrt-3.10, cerofiles-3.10, and ceropackages,
you need to merge in the correct switch and interface data for your
device into files/etc/config/network, then hammer in the right package
files from the cerofiles packages.list and override.list, wash , rinse
and repeat, and then hope you got the switch OR wifi info right so
you can flash a box and get into it to see what else broke.
