super quick openwrt upgrade from WhiteRussian RC3 -> backfire 10.03

Downloaded 10.03 for brcm47xx :

convert .bin download to .trx - instructions at

dd bs=32 skip=1 if=linksys.bin of=linksys.trx

confirm file now begins at byte 0 with HDR0::

$ hexdump -C openwrt-wrt54g-squashfs.bin | grep HDR0

then uploaded bin using scp

then installed using mtd:

mtd -r write firmware.trx linux

by default it's configured to bridge lan and wireless.
i just disabled DHCP, gave it a static IP, DNS and default gw.

configured wireless SSID + auth same as the other router in the house.
