I'm currently working on upgrading the our fork of the SDK from 00.02.05.2 to the latest release (00.07.02.7). There I followed the instructions from here:

https://wiki.teltonika-networks.com/view/RUTOS_Software_Development_Kit_instructions#Compiling_a_standard_firmware

When running make it compiles - but I haven't yet tested the outcome. Because I wanted to activate and deactivate features as I did before with 00.02.

Just running `make menuconfig` and saving the config-file results in a lot changes in the .config-file. I'm afraid even breaking changes. (e.g. the kernel-version changes from `CONFIG_LINUX_git_git_teltonika_lt_teltonika_fml_linux_quic_git-HEAD=y` to `CONFIG_LINUX_3_18=y`)

How should this step be done to generate a firmware as close as possible to the one release?

Hello,

Firmware compiled with SDK should operate without any issues and be identical to the release firmware. Simply executing 'make', as instructed in the link, will result in the closest firmware to the release version, thus, I suggest to try the compiled firmware.

Best regards,

Yes, that's working, but if I want to change anything using make menuconfig (like activating or deactivating a package) it changes the .config vastly and the firmware built won't work anymore.

Could you share a screenshot or the logs of the failed build?

The built is OK; the built image doesn't work. Probably because of those changes in the .config. Especially the kernel-part.

CONFIG_LINUX_git_git_teltonika_lt_teltonika_fml_linux_quic_git-HEAD=y is becoming 'is not set' and CONFIG_LINUX_3_18=y .
