I use DEL 5.9.7.1 (says me it is up-to-date)

* I tried the stock image came with and got the same result (i can send you the full log file of the boot process)

Starting bluetooth services.
Starting network.
/etc/init.d/rcS: FAILED (variant 0x07 does not support bluetooth)
ath6kl: temporary war to avoid sdio crc error
eth1: no PHY found
ifconfig: SIOCSIFFLAGS: No such device
run-parts: /etc/network/if-up.d/ifup exited with code 1
Starting dropbear sshd: OK



* I tried to build images changing nothing in the configuration and got :

Starting bluetooth services.
Starting network.
/etc/init.d/rcS: FAILED (variant 0x07 does not support bluetooth)
cp: can't create '/lib/firmware/ath6k/AR6003/hw2.1.1/softmac': Path does not exist

eth1: no PHY found
ifconfig: SIOCSIFFLAGS: No such device
run-parts: /etc/network/if-up.d/ifup exited with code 1

Variant 0x07 is a variant with only 1 ethernet, wifi and no bluetooth, no bluetooth messages and no eth1 are expected if your kernel configuration has Bluetooth and Ethernet1 enabled.
I would recommend they disable these interfaces in your kernel config for such variant.

Regarding the second output there is an strange message:
/etc/init.d/rcS: FAILED (variant 0x07 does not support bluetooth)
cp: can't create '/lib/firmware/ath6k/AR6003/hw2.1.1/softmac': Path does not exist

have you only updated the rootfs and not the kernel (or viceversa) so kernel and modules version mismatch.


both bluetooth and eth1 errors are expected, update both kernel and rootfs and check if they have eth0 and wlan0 (ifconfig -a).
In case you still have no wireless, please provide the output of uboot for command "hwid otp read"
