Thanks, i'll look at this (just finished downloading source). But my
question was NOT concerning GENERATING image (that part
of toolchain works, so let it be), but FLasing it. Normally done by webs
app. And as i see in Amilda, it uses the same scheme -> webs-buried C
function. And I would have an alternative, because of: first -> have no
source for webs-buried functions supplied by Edimax, so I have only
choice of using built binary no chance to simply add some functionality,
second -> webs is quite heavyweight, approx 450kb -> it is a lot on
system with 2M Flash expanded to 5M Ramdisk.

BTW maybe someone reading this knows what Edimax devices have 4M flash?

W.P.
