Hi attended sysupgrades which was snuck into the bottom of https://openwrt.org/docs/guide-user/advanced/opkg_extras seems to be a better way of upgrading my firmware rather then finding the sysupgrade file and saving my packages and then reinstalling it on update. Am I missing something? There also seems to be a lack of documentation on this so I just wanted to seek some guidance. Does it still work?
Thanks in advance
So why normally upgrade firmware at all when you can just use that?
Read through the open and closed issues on that github: not saying that you will run into an issue, but I think the chances are greater with that tool than doing it the old-fashioned way. Until it's at least as reliable, I doubt it could be made a default path.
Oh thanks, looking at the issues there do seem to be some small issues. I just tested it myself and it worked great and as McGiverGim said, it is updated in a regular manner. But yeah your point does make sense and I guess this is just a convenience tool for people willing to take the risk.
