First of all, no you can not easily cut a build down to make it fit on the router's flash.
The best thing you can do is create a ticket on the SVN to let Brainslayer know about the problem. We had this issue with the Linksys 160N v3 for about 6 months I think before it was fixed.
Don't expect it to happen over night. Also, in order for Brainslayer to make it fit some features that the router currently has may have to be excluded (VPN, Hotspot, etc). Some of those features may have already been excluded.
I would not suggest what you are attempting to do, you will most likely end up with a brick.
Did anyone create a ticket to the SVN yet ?
On my Buffalo WHR HP-G300n the update is also failing .

I have been running dd-wrt on two separate Buffalo whr-g300n v2 for a couple of years in order to run hotspotsystem software.
Both run build 21676.
However, the build has not always been completely stable therefore I have been waiting for a suitable firmware replacement. Builds later than this seemed to have an issue whereby a WAN address could not be obtained therefore I downgraded back.
Recently I have tried again, but when I try a firmware upgrade, the firmware upgrade is said to be successful, however the build never does, and stays at 21676 after the router reboots. Note that this is through the admin user interface.
I have also attempted with tftp but with no success yet. I have seen guides but I would like to double check I am doing this correct (using Windows):
Reset the router to factory defaults
connect to router via lan port
set a static ip on the interface compatible with router factory defaults - 192.168.1.100, subnet 255.255.255.0 - still auto dns
set retries in tftp2 to > 10 - do I reboot router at this point or wait until it has completely booted?
set tftp2 ip to 192.168.1.1
press start / connect
If I am doing something wrong or if anyone has any suggestions it would be greatly appreciated.
From what i remember the routers ip when in firmware recovery mode will be 192.168.11.1 so make your computers ethernet port 11.2. If your using a windows machine you will also want a seperate switch between the computer and the router to keep the interface active on your windows machine. Personally i used to use pumpkin tftp because it was so easy to use and i could change the timeout.
The window on bootup is pretty slim so it might take multiple attempts.
Back a while ago i remember having a problem updating this router via gui. However i could always update it via TFTP. Has that changed now also?
The problem is in the .bin file to flash because have the wrong size of MTD and the system not flash.
From the release r32597 you can't install or upgrade. _________________ TP-LINK Archer C7 v2 | dd-wrt 3.0 r39956 std (2 devices)
