A USB+Transmission build for RTN 8mb devices

    I was looking for a way to find a good use for my RT-N10U USB port and had an idea to install Transmission to it. However, latest Shibby builds with BT+USB are larger in size than its flash (8mb) beginning from v116.

    Currently I have the latest AdvancedTomato version of Shibby installed. I don't need many of the features that are there, such as VPN or Multiwan.

    Is there any build currently that contains a torrent client and USB support for Asus RTN 8Mb devices? Or can I find the Shibby versions lower than 116 somewhere still?

    Thanks!

    Thanks @pomidor1! I haven't noticed that n53u usage before, interesting.
    And thanks for the link. I will install this and then try to add Transmission via entware.

    So do you mean in the firmware that you mentioned last (130-VPN) Transmission is preinstalled?
    Also, this is version 130. Could I maybe better try a newer one, tomato-K26USB-1.28.RT-N5x-MIPSR2-138-miniVPN.zip? Should have noticed those before...

    no 130 is not in itself transsmision is the last or second to last version where it enters vpn.

    If someone does not need multiwan it is better not to use the next version of the tomato to Shibby because I have different bugs.
    The recommended version is 132 but there will not enter 132 vpn
    test, and this version n53u also the people they use to N10U

    I've tried the 130 VPN and it worked brilliantly. Set up Entware-ng and Transmission according to the guide in the Github wiki of Entware-ng with some minor hiccups. Thanks a lot @pomidor1!
