Hello, Michael
    Yes, you are right.
    As you figured out, I built my current image several months ago,
and now need to build one new to reflash it.
    Just now I managed to fix it: I find one the same name key in
    I copy it into my newifi box before I do sysupgrade, then I can reflash it.
    Thanks for your information.
