Which device is this? Can you send me a copy of your CFE (mtd0)? (reverting to 3.6 from an earlier revision should allow you to boot).

  • Resolution set to fixed
  • Status changed from accepted to closed

Fixed in r35605, thanks for reporting.

It will still complain about the wrong checksum (your nvram doesn't seem to have one at all), but it will continue using the nvram.
