HW556a VER.C does not work with squashfs images

Reported by: lumen@… Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Chaos Calmer 15.05
Component: base system Version: Trunk
Keywords: Cc:


Flashing Huawei HG556a VerC (MX29LV128DB) with images from trunk left the device in readonly state and primary interface is not rised up.

As Danitool told me, the possible cause is the use of a wrong block-size for this particular version of the router, witch has a 0x10000 block size flash instead of 0x20000 of the other two models.

Compiling with block-size 0x10000, squashfs images comes to work nomally indeed. jffs2 images works too.

I have time to work on a patch to solve this (despite mi low skills on openwrt development). But is better to discuss the best solution first.
