CPE210/510 sysupgrade renders device into paper weight #1417
Upgrading a CPE210 to the current gluon master (03 Jun 2018) puts the device into a bootloop with no way to restore an old firmware.
User reports a "Data loaded outside the reserved load area" message on a normal boot. Trying to flash a different firmware (stock firmware or older known working gluon) via tftp is quitted with "incorrect file".
The filesize of the sysupgrade file is suspiciously larger than the factory and larger than prior sysupgrade files. (4 MB vs. 8 MB) @rotanid reports equally large filesizes in gluon-next.

CPE510 seems to be affected, too.
