    Hi,

    1. There was a bug which is fixed now.

    2. You are getting the error because the shield is already connected. Did you activate the auto connect service?

    3. ppp0 is showing up which means you are already connected via Shield.

    Is it compatible with openWRT ?

    Theoretically, it is compatible. We have not tested using openWRT.

    At the step “update kernel” i got this message below because openWRT doesn’t recognize neither “rpi-update” nor “apt-get”

    \033[1;33mDo you have updated kernel? [Y/n] \033[0m
    n
    \033[1;33mrpi-update\033[0m
    ./install.sh: line 76: rpi-update: not found
    \033[1;33mppp install\033[0m
    ./install.sh: line 79: apt-get: not found

    Please can you make some adjustment for openWRT to make it run. thank you!

    Hi @Julien Roch

    “rpi-update” and “apt-get” do not work on openWRT. You must make changes to the “./install.sh” file. The errors mentioned are due to package management. openWRT is using “OPKG Package Manager”. Try correcting the lines that were given errors or by making a comment line.
