Do you have any logs to provide?

It's probably related to this being the same platform:

I am having a similar (sysupgrade) problem.

I am running r48522, tried to update to the snapshot from Jan 31 (Kirkwood Viper sysupgrade Don't know which release that represents since it fails to install. Using LUCI web interface to upgrade. When it reboots, it 'hangs', the LED/light is dim. After an excessive long time, I would manually reboot, I needed to use hardware button to force reset, it finally booted back to r48522. Tried twice, gave up because it is obvious something is wrong.

The router is in a semi-prod environment so I can't test any more for a few weeks, but the failed upgrade has messed with a few plugin pages, such as in luci-app-statistics, the Setup | Output Statistics pages are missing the buttons (view source reveals error 500). I was going to re-install with a new image once the issue is resolved, as I can no longer tell if it is due to the failed image itself, or due to the failed upgrade process.

Perhaps on a related note, the trunk/snapshots folder has not been updated since Jan 31 (it is now Feb 3).

  • Resolution fixed deleted
  • Status changed from closed to reopened

Still can't upgrade from CC 15.05 r46767 to recent trunk, it's say "Firmware upgrade is not implemented for this platform."
