I have an Archer C7v2 as well, so I'm interested.

The Problem: Thus far, I have only indulged in installing/configuring pre-built binary images and packages. I have the sense that I would need to build the firmware myself to be able to incorporate Toke's patches. 

1) Is this true? (that I would have to build the image to get Toke's patch?)

2) Does cake come along with Toke's patch?

3) Does anyone have a pre-built image for the Archer c7v2?

4) And if there's a way to get Toke's build without setting up the full build environment, then give me an outline of the process, and I'll write it up.
