Boot from external image means this and you never get boot it from USB you made. Here is missing info in merv07 manual about booting kernel from external source. So i guess you have 2008 firmware on board, identificator file shows 2009 firmware. It does no matter, you can delete Version.0 (or Version.1) file from /mtd_rwarea/ or change its content with ID to 2008 one. Do you have alternative firmware to switch to?
To have network you need copy rt73.ko (or rt2870sta.ko) - it depends from USB wifi dongle you have - some dongles use rt73, some rt2570sta and some rt2870sta.ko - you need only one driver.
Copy driver to /mtd_rwarea/modules and load it from there eg:
Code: Select all
and off course use search function:
use not internal search, but google widget on http://www.samygo.tv
All required modules are in samygo-all-extensions.
It does not matter, you can leave it as is, but remember - if you activate it, you need do whole job from beginning
Step2 is needed just for restore u-boot.
