This would be the goto page for the setup of the badge (hopefully)
clone out of git
refer to this for complete instructions http://wiki.openwrt.org/doc/howto/buildroot.exigence on setting up openwrt. on ubuntu 14.10 i needed gawk as well
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install git-core build-essential libssl-dev ncurses-dev unzip subversion mercurial
ubuntu 14.x, the feed update will potentially warn you about a missing gnu awk
sudo apt-get install gawk
git clone git://git.openwrt.org/openwrt
Cloning into 'openwrt'...
now head into the openwrt folder and setup the default config.
if you don't want luci, skip the luci parts. if luci fails, check for the awk version.
./scripts/feeds update -a
./scripts/feeds install luci
./scripts/feeds install -a -p luci
i'm using things like fuse, usb support and luci, haven't really fleshed this out yet.

Read some of the things below about configuring the root fs, and wifi setup etc before building
building it, or make world
make -j 9
-j N number of threads (approx number of cores, adjust for machine)
V=s verbose, for debugging make, if it errors out. usually a dirclean and rebuild fixes build errors ( after the first successful one)
now wait a really long time, go read http://www.hackaday.com for a bit or something...
If the build finishes the firmware will be in the bin/ramips folder the openwrt-ramips-rt305x-vocore-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin file
for me on a virgin ubuntu install it failed on the first make, and when i re-ran it with V=s to see why, it compiled ok...
mtp -r write
alternative way, which has been working for me for a few months and doesn't reset anything to stock except the password.
scp binary to ram/tmpfs cannot be flash!, sometimes the wifi drops before it is able to flush the stdout, so doesn't always show the end, should be less than 60 seconds. I use winscp with sftp mode on windows.
sysupgrade -v /tmp/openwrt-ramips-rt305x-vocore-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin

I've seen it not print out the last two lines, still seemed to work ok, the kernel just isn't flushing the print buffer.
first time password
change first password with telnet http://wiki.openwrt.org/doc/howto/firstlogin
turn off firewall , security conference , remember?
(ssh to vocore)
new config for opkg if using a version before april 2015

move root to a USB stick

mount /dev/sda1 /mnt
mount --bind / /tmp/cproot

to use both wlan and eth0 interfaces separately, split the bridge in luci and create a new interface using vlan eth0.1
edit to enable wifi by default
and comment out

same place to change SSID from OpenWrt to VoCore etc as well, though note via sysupgrade it remembers the old settings, so the ones compiled into the firmware only get updated on a full reset.
add packages to base build
./scripts/feed install zsh (example) zsh from packages website doesn't work, has to be built
./scripts/feeds update packages luci
./scripts/feeds install -a -p luci
currently trying to add this to it, though i haven't done much
