Step 8 from Wiki:
- The HT-TM05 will look for your computer at
10.10.10.254 and install the
kernel file. Once it has finished installation of the
kernel file, it will search for a (nonexistent)
rootfs file — when it begins searching for this file, shut down the HT-TM05 by holding the power button normally.
So this is it ... @arrmo could you verify this?
If this really works, the OpenWrt
factory.bin is really two file:
kernel - the 3 KByte loader
rootfs - the OKLI uImaged OpenWrt kernel + rootfs
Back to the loosing the size limitation. If we create a recovery TFTP acceptable file pair (
rootfs), then the OpenWrt kernel + rootfs should fit in the OEM firmware partition, the 6144 K = 6 M sized
After OpenWrt boot, the semi-wasted 1660 KByte would be usable again (thanks to
For testing you could find OEM
rootfs at cryptographrix / HooToo_HT-TM05-hacking, extracted from
On the long run, when the 6 MByte size limit hits the device, we could tune the new factory recipe to slice the kernel + rootfs blob at 6 MByte and append the tail to the loader.bin.
