problem to Build firmware
« on: February 03, 2013, 02:13:22 PM »
Can anyone help me with this problem.

I did the firmware mod kit installation on CentOS 5.8, ran the installation as shown on page

When you extract the firmware . / went well and was created fmk folder with the files. I made the necessary changes in rootfs folder and ran the command . / At one point the message is shown below.

ERROR: New firmware image will be larger than original image!
       Building firmware images larger than the original can brick your
       Try re-running with the -min option, or remove any unnecessary
files from the file system.
       Refusing to create new firmware image.

       Original file size: 3968818
       Current file size:  3968818


It is suggested to use the -min, but no correct syntax to use.

I try -nopad to, but the result is the same.

It is shown that the firmware is the same size, original and current.

Should be lower because retired some commands of file rcS.

What could be wrong?
