[Librecmc-users] Another Upgrade Failure

Hi,

For the record, I got the file from:
https://librecmc.org/librecmc/downloads/snapshots/v1.4.3/ar71xx/generic/librecmc-ar71xx-generic-tpe-r1100-squashfs-sysupgrade.bin

The good news is that the opkg suggestion worked! I installed LuCI and was able to use it to reflash the router (this time I used the file from inside the Thinkpenguin ISO, and I unchecked "Keep Settings"). Once that was done, I restored my configuration backup, and everything's working again!

Thank you all so much for helping me sort this out! I will be more careful next time I upgrade. 

Cheers,
Michael Vincent
