You forgot the file name extension (.tcz) for the firmware entry.
Also you can remove a few as they are deps of  wifi.tcz .
Code: [Select]
mc.tcz
openssh.tcz
firmware-rpi3-wireless.tcz
readline.tcz
wifi.tcz
Download a copy and keep it handy: Core book ;)

This is an excellent post and an excellent resource.   

Many thanks to you Rob and to the others who have expanded/ clarified the post.     

I'm just about to work on a PiZW and need rapid boot  ---  I'm sure you've saved me many hours.

Thanks and best regards

Hello

This would always be useful to know.....and to know that it will work across new upcoming TCL Rasp Pi versions not just Pi Core 9....

i did not see the exact minimal steps LIST .....committed to the wiki....... as the OP said he would do.....

http://wiki.tinycorelinux.net/wiki:start

It would be helpful to have the "exact correct  steps list" for connecting a Pi ZERO w to wi fi ....put into the wiki and (tested)

where is the "exact steps list" that works  (Tested)...?

thx

V
