Sagem Fast 2604 upgrade from Barrier Breaker r37269

Hi community,
I would like to use a new version of openwrt with lua in the Sagem Fast 2604 16Mb ram 4Mb Flash.

I installed openwrt Barrier Breaker r37269 in the device a few years ago, but I never used (i was too young xdd). I thought that upgrade procedure consist on:

  1. the firmware download
  2. run sysupgrade -v /tmp/filename-of-downloaded-sysupgrade.bin
    or mtd -r write /tmp/openwrt-ar71xx-generic-wzr-hp-ag300h-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin firmware

The router does not have a configured Internet connection and want no configure it before the update; So I downloaded into my computer the last rom from here:

Next, I began to copy the firmware from pc to router through the ehernet cable with: scp <firmware_version> root@

But it hangs. It hangs because there is not enough memory for store the firmware, (there is 16Mb, enough in theory. Perhaps was on first time not correct flashed, with a false hw version and runs a false memory map)

So I tried unsuccessfully the next procedure:
On your Linux PC run:
nc -q0 1234 < openwrt-ar71xx-tl-wr1043nd-v1-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin

On the router run:
nc -l -p 1234 | mtd write - firmware

Conclusion: I can't find a way to upgrade the router.

Please, any so kind to help me?

Thans in advance

Try a smaller snapshot image ( doesn't have luci obviosly )
