cd /tmp
mkdir mlinux-3.3.13
cd mlinux-3.3.13
tar -xf ~/Downloads/mlinux-base-image-mtcdt-upgrade-withboot.bin
sed -i 's/mtcdt/mtcdt|mtcdtip/' model
tar -cf /tmp/mlinux-base-image-mtcdt-upgrade-withboot.bin *

  • Bootstrap patch borrowed from MTR to lessen the likelihood of the Real Time Clock preventing boot when operating with a battery.
  • Build change: source control for 3.x.y above 3.3.6 was moved to git 3 branch from master. This was to prepare for mLinux release 4.0
