Thanks for replying.
I only received the equipment day before yesterday, and I wasn't planning on "screwing around" with it until I had it working in the configuration that it arrived : )
Anyway, YES the packet count continuously increases so it is certainly receiving the that data. and I am using Librarian (Version3. whatever it is), as it is as it arrived newly minted from Outernet on Tuesday .
I have not looked at the method of flashing the CHIP , but I am comfortable enough with doing it - I am guessing you are suggesting an upgrade to the beta Skylark? I am happy to run beta software I was just hoping to play with the "stable" release before I broke anything
let me know, meanwhile I will look at what flashing to Skylark entails
I really think that Outernet is a great concept and I will keep supporting it
(edit) I am frustrated enough now with this (after a zillion reboots) to just go straight to the Skylark flashing..
I have all the downloads done.. I actually found a metal paper clip accidentally, so I think the gods support the flashing idea
Wish me luck
