Atheros PB44 OpenWRT Backfire 10.03.1 Unable to boot kernel

Reported by: rajkumar Owned by: developers
Priority: high Milestone: Chaos Calmer 15.05
Component: base system Version: Backfire 10.03
Keywords: Cc:



I've followed the steps described in below link to flash pre-built OpenWRT images into PB44 board (rev 250-01488-040) Green Board.

I've used the pre-built images (kernel and filesystem) from below link:

After I've successfully flashed the kernel and filesystem images using stock bootloader, RedBoot, its failing to load the openwrt kernel image with stream version is not supported, lzma_decode failed. res=1 Below is the detailed log.

Can anyone help me out, what is going wrong?
