    I'm wanting to add files to nvram, people seem to recommend the following command:

    nvram setfile2nvram
    ...however, 'setfile2nvram' does not appear to be a valid option for nvram. What's up with that?

    Stock Tomatomato 1.28 has

    which stores and retrieves as base64 encoded files - should not be used for anything but very small as this expands the file.

    setfile2nvram is available in tomatousb mod.

    Need to check sourcecode, but I believe these just escape illegal characters so use less nvram space than base64. I guess setfile2nvram auto restores the file to the source location after router boot, the other commands will need associated script functions to do it manually.
