FIXME Please check out the article flash.layout. It contains an example and a couple of explanations.

OEM easy installation

FIXME

OEM installation using the TFTP method

At the moment you can flash the db120 images using U-boot command

# rootfs
tftp 0x80060000 openwrt-ar71xx-generic-db120-rootfs-squashfs.bin;erase 0x9f050000 +5E0000;cp.b 80060000 0x9f050000 $filesize
# kernel
tftp 0x80060000 openwrt-ar71xx-generic-db120-kernel.bin;erase 0x9fd50000 +110000;cp.b 80060000 0x9fd50000 110000
# or using the sysupgrade image directly
tftp 0x80060000 image.bin;erase 0x9f050000 +e80000;cp.b 80060000 0x9f050000 $filesize

Then you can restart your AP

Here some other boot-env vars involved:
