i have to tell, Auto DST was never works IMO.
strange I'm sure it used to work, looks like deep problem in toolchain or uclibc, "/etc/TZ" looks OK just not being used.
It's a bug in uclibc, must happen every few years, has been fixed a couple of months ago in latest git
As a temp workaround for UK you can tell Tomato to use a custom TZ string, just changing the "5" to a "4" for 4th week of March
Or patch the toolchain source and rebuild! - this file line 535?
Dunno what that old toolchain source is in git - it's not used.
The solution to this bug is to drop a patch file with the contents of this post
into a file called, for example,
Then rebuild the toolchain, then rebuild the firmware - works for me on K26 mipsr2 on RT-N16.
If you have previously built the toolchain you may have to manually delete the build_dir - looks to be a bug in make clean…
