    Hey, big problem here,

    after flashing 1.14 tomato vpn mod, i did want to flash over to dd-wrt to check if mmc mod is working there. but after disabling jffs2, when i selected the firmware image and hit upgrade, after 2 seconds following message appears:

    jffs is disabled for sure, but something weird is happening there, because when i enable it it is showing 512.00 KB / 188.00 KB but /jffs dir is very empty...formatting results in the same values.

    nvram dump contains
    jffs2_format 0
    jffs2_on 0
    jffs2_size 524288

    may jffs2 size value be wrong? How can i clean the partition or reset it...i dont like being locked in :D

    all help is very appreciated!!!!!!!

    yes it is because the upgrade program checks for SquashFS signature before upgrade
    now since I upgraded SquashFS to v3.0 the signature isn't the same which displays the error you encountered.
    now if any of you flashed mod versions 1.13/1.14 and want to flash something else you need to use the tftp method as stated in the first post.

    telnet/ssh into the router and make sure boot wait is on
    nvram show | grep boot_wait
    if it is on as it should be normally you can continue..
    connect your computer directly to port 1 on the router and give your NIC a static ip of
    then issue TFTP -i PUT <LOCAL FILENAME>
    while plugging the router into the power this must be done in the first 5 seconds the router boots up, so it will flash new firmware give it a minute or two the router will flash the firmware and reboot.
    a fix will be available soon.
