Lets take a few steps back. You should not have managed to produce a 12MB image, that's ludicrous lol.
And moving the boot parameters is a big recipe for bricking a device.

I produced an 11MB file using the following config file.

I can provide a download link for it if you would like. Or you can continue trying to build yourself :)

About 11MB is right for a "gargoyle-large" image. "gargoyle-usb" should be smaller than that. This should flash fine.

1.15.x is fine :)

Side note:
I got frustrated... I know it is an old intel i5-650 with 2cpu x 2thread
So I add more memory to 10gb, change the Hdd to m-sata ssd 64gb
I change the Linux run level "multiuser" ( no GUI... Text only) so i can get 8gb free working memory.

But...

No luck compiling with full thread mode
My guess is... Race condition between compiler

I put that config file to
/targets/ath79/profiles/default/

but after
make BUILD_THREADS=1 ath79

it produce all ath79 images but not my c-75 image...
i also notice after compiling... the overal directory are 26GB ( i start from fresh git)
the previous one only 16GB ( separate folder)

did i put the config file at the wrong place ?

You also need to add it to profile_images. But if you just go fishing in the ath79-src/bin/targets/ath79/generic/ you’ll find it.

You did the right thing with the config file.
You need to add

Code: Select all

airtight_c-75-squashfs-
To the top of the profile_images file
