I'm reasonably certain sysupgrade is broken on the Linksys WRT32X. I'd love to hear from another user to confirm/refute this.
Sysupgrade (do not preserve) via GUI or CLI
- Device reboots (way too quickly, i don't think much of the upgrade happens at all)
boot_part/bootcmdremains as it was before sysupgrade, so it comes back to same partition
/etc/banneris now blank (part of the overlay is being erased??). Can't find any other files which are broken but i haven't looked extensively
-- Config remains intact as far as i can tell
IF i interrupt boot with serial and bring the system up (run bootcmd), then run the sysupgrade, interrupt again and bring the system up (run bootcmd), everything works as you would expect.
Take serial out of the equation and it goes pear shaped.
Anyone able to point me in the right direction for debugging this? I've tried but i'm currently out of ideas. Because the problem manifests with serial disconnected, it makes life hard.
Also with serial, am i supposed to be able to invoke this at ANY time and access the console? I do not seem to get any output/input unless i interrupt the boot process first.
