The file /sbin/init exists, this error is happening as I attempt to create a new plugin for the brcm4716. Could potentially be linked to ticket #167. If you wish to try and recreate this issue, here's the plugin I've been working with:

I would like to add that no init related files are modified, check the plugin to see for yourself. This "brcm4716-clean" plugin I'm using essentially does 3 main things:

  1. copy brcm47xx target to newly created brcm4716 one, 2. patch using Georges patchset which is known to work with openwrt just fine and 3. apply fixes to let kernel version 3.0 work without and compilation error. Again I am using the fixes already created in openwrt to tackle this problem so there should be no issue here either.

All these factors lead me to believe that something is going wrong in debwrt side of things.

Problem resolved, was caused by using incompatible patches with kernel 3.0.
