How to get USB Venus-data tar file to unpack

I asked this in the modifications space earlier this week I wonder if it can be answered.

Referring to implementation notes it says:

Also if venus-data.{tar.gz,tgz,zip} is found on removable storage (usb stick, sd-card) when booting, it will be unpacked into /data. Implementation details in this commit. Added per Venus v2.30~28.

However this is not working for me in Venus os 2.53.

I have traced through the init.d logic.

Execution of either of the scripts:

  
                 
  1. /etc/rc5.d/S30update-data.sh
  
                 
  1. or /etc/init.d/update-data.sh 

Works fine and reports: "Updating /data with /media/sda1/venus-data.tar.gz"

And the contents are correctly installed on /data

But this is not happening when rebooting.

What am I doing wrong?

More diagnostic information is in my post in the modification space.

This appears to be fixed in the 2.60~22 release I am now testing.
