e1000 and the shibby builds

    I've got an e1000 that I have serial console access to (had to rescue it from a dd-wrt bad flash, fun times) and I have installed the dd-wrt.v24-16785_NEWD-2_K2.6_mini_e1000v2.bin.

    Under both stock and dd-wrt firmware upgrade options, the shibby builds for the e1000 fail with the serial console message that the code is too large.

    For example: uploading "tomato-E1000v2-v21-NVRAM32K-1.28.RT-N5x-MIPSR2-114-Mini.bin" produces this message on the serial console:

    "Image too big for partition: linux
    linux: Success
    uploading [39866478]"

    and the message "Upgrade failed" on the dd-wrt web form.

    The linksys stock firmware FW_E1000_2.1.02.006_US_20130115.bin does upload at 3.8 megs and then when you try to use its firmware upgrade form, it can't load the image and defaults to the stock firmware.

    When I try to load it from the CFE using the "flash -noheader : flash1.trx" option, it tells me:

    "Stop to blink diag led ...Done. 3990528 bytes read, fname=flash.trx
    Programming...Failed.: I/O error
    *** command status = -4"

    I can't get this tomato onto my e1000 router. :(

    Any idea why?

    Recent Shibby builds are too big for your router. Either choose an older and smaller Shibby build or switch to Victek or Toastman.

    Does shibby know that the shibby builds for the router shibby claims to support no longer fit? I mean why even have that e1000 build listed if it won't fit the router?
