Newbie here with newie question.
How do I find the latest Sercomm partition parser patch for the 6700v2 and apply it?
Needing an upgrade to my old router, I got the Netgear 6700v2 because it was based on the mediatek platform which seems to have strong support these days. My first 6700v2 had no bad blocks, but the second is of by 20000. I learned how to compile my own firmware, adjusted the partition map thanks to Borromini. This left me with having to compile once for the router with bad blocks, and either compile again (or download the snapshot from firmware-selector).
These devices are rather inexpensive so I took a gamble and tried to get another router but got another one with bad blocks!
The motivation to find that patch and learn how to apply it is much greater!
So currently, I can compile to 5.10 and have even tried the testing 5.15 kernel without problems (for my usage at least - basic routing with SQM, adblock, dawn, and a dumb AP).
I'm assuming there is some .patch file somewhere? Or do I just try to find one of those emails, copy/paste into a .patch, place the file into the /target/linux/ramips/patches-5.15/ directory? Theres some documentation about "quilt". How does it fit into the build process?
I know - very newbie questions. Sorry for the handholding. In doing this, I'm happy to try to make patch more official though it sounds like it might be in the works, just slowly.
