All builds after r38581 of Feb 6th do not install anymore: they are too big.

Any suggestion how to get a smaller build?

Hmm, the flash memory size of the v2 device is 128MB, so I think there must be different problem.

The linux partition on NAND flash memory devices is far smaller than full capacity. Do a `cat /proc/mtd` in telnet, and also look at your `dmesg` output for partition sizes to check. OpenWRT appears to format the linux partition to 0x1b00000 = 28311552 bytes = 27.000 MB.

@rigillo If you can provide the above outputs, that would help. I'll let BS know about it.
