For my understanding what can be the maximum for these 8MB routers?
For my E2000, I use build 33215 K3 Mega, which is 7805 Kb and working well.
This build is 7813 Kb. So should we consider 7805 Kb as the maximum?

EDIT: should probably look at number of bytes which has to be below 8.000.000 ?


Directly out of the Peacock thread.

To be on a safe side, please check the size of new firmware file before flashing it to your router. Flashing too large firmware file can brick your router. (Netgear Routers often cannot flash standard builds because of the extra partition they have on the flash chip.)
2MB flash chip / normal cfe (256k) : 1769472 bytes
2MB flash chip / compressed cfe (128k): 1900544 bytes
4MB flash chip (not Netgear): 3801088 bytes
4MB flash chip Netgear routers: 3735552 bytes
8MB flash chip: 7995392 bytes

Router/Version: Linksys E1200 v2
Firmware: DD-WRT v3.0-r33492 MEGA
Kernel: Linux 3.10.107 #16256 Tue Oct 10 14:22:08 CEST 2017 mips
Previous: DD-WRT v3.0-r33215 mini
Mode/Status: Testing in Progress
Reset: 30/30/30 prior to flash
Issues/Errors: None so far upon Flash, but will review different configurations (AP, Repeater, R.B) throughout the week. Only confirming initial flash.

UPDATE: Ran router under REPEATER config and all is well so far. Speedtest resulted in 25Mbps download speeds which is EXPECTED for my connection type.

Ha --- yes, always knew the E1200v2 had a little extra room
I installed the [dd-wrt.v24-33492_NEWD-2_K3.x_mega-nv64k.bin]
previous 33215 k3.x mega
all looks good. Smile
dd-wrt.v24-33492_NEWD-2_K3.x_mega-nv64k.bin
and
dd-wrt.v24-33492_NEWD-2_K3.x_mega-e1200v2.bin
both are 8,000,512 bytes

NOTE: other users of the K3.x_mega-nv64k.bin -- this WILL NOT likely install on other 8MB flash routers
and won't even come close to installing on a WNDR3700v3 .....sorry!!!

now wishin had these in place of couple E2500 Sad

Did a quick test run on the e1200v2 running a REPEATER config and so far all is running good.

No boot loop everything seems stable. noticing an error on the status page though it appears something is undefined.

Edit: it appears this has cleared up quick instead of undefined it's now showing as CPU features.

In general, seems like proper channel ranges are now available instead of just auto plus one or two other channels on 5ghz radios.

Curious to see if 2.4Ghz is better on my R8500. My wife's printer kept going offline after a couple of days and 2.4ghz throughput from Internet (via speedtest) was down to about 40% of what I was getting on 5Ghz.

Excellent. Now, spam the developers with this about 3x a day until they get back to their senses. Tens of bugs reports and complaints here have failed to achieve that result.

Hmmmm - already seeing "incorrect password for network <ssid>" and this in the syslog every 2 mins:

Oct 11 18:20:00 NetGear R8500 user.info : Maybe igmprt had died, we need to re-exec it

Not sure if they are related.

No boot-loop like previous versions, it's been stable for the last 3 hours.

UPDATE2:Now running router under AP configuration and everything seems to be working as expected. Ran the REPEATER for roughly 6hours without an issue and also the AP config for 6 hours without an issue. Connectivity seems to be strong and steady. Wish I could say the same with the wife!!

In case anyone is wondering how to check this on your router, e.g. on my WNDR4000:
boot log [dmesg] wrote:

bcmsflash: Filesystem type: squashfs, size=0x5b5ade

[linux]-[cfe] = 0x7A0000 -> 7995392 bytes = 7808 KB
iow, if you have a 256 KB CFE, that's your limit; if it 128 KB though, you can fit 7936 KB firmware.

@redhawk0 et al, can any MIPS router use a compressed CFE? Never seen any mention, nor thought about it, except for the old micro-build WRT54*'s...

Anyway, so I won't be updating my WNDR4000 yet; regarding the E1200v2 above...

both are 8,000,512 bytes
So, looking at the E1200v2:

It has 64 KB more: [firmware]-[boot] = 8060928 bytes= 7872 KB
Looks like the E1500 is the same size [edit: so is the E900 and E800]. Let's see...

Well...I've never heard of any new CFE's being generated for the newer model routers. Probably because there hasn't been a need (until now). I recall BS was trying to squeeze a CFE down to 192K on the older WRT54 (4M Flash models) and possibly some of the Asus units about 5 years ago. It would be interesting to know if its possible with the newer units or if they have become so configuration heavy that they take up the majority of the 256K and we can't squeeze them down. In any event, the current builds are 7999K+....so even a compressed CFE wouldn't help us.
