BBBW answer at last Meetup

When you say update firmware are you referring to a different image or a kernel.
I am doing this as a test with latest image 2016-11-06 and did do an
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get upgrade
Using an SD card version of that image.

I am familiar with using connman and the Dec 5 testing image from Robert Nelson to get connected
to my home network. Also others have later testing images connecting using connman .

At the Meetup you said in newer images connman had been replaced with something else and I
forgot what you said it was?

The ‘tether’ provided by connman was replaced, it isn’t that connman was removed. The connman provided ‘tether’ was replaced by our own ‘SoftAp0’ done with a script and host_apd.

Oh, and you also need to do (as root, connected to the Internet):
cd /opt/scripts
git pull
cd tools
./update_kernel.sh

Before I received your last email I went to Beagleboard.org and then to
http://elinux.org/Beagleboard:BeagleBoneBlack_Debian#Debian_Image_Testing_Snapshots

and grabbed 2017-02-12 SD card image and burned an SD card with it.
When I booted it the Access point at 192.168.8.1 was there and worked.
Did not do much as it was dinner time then when I came back to it I saw your email
and did the steps to do ./update_kernel.sh and it did it’s thing and I rebooted and the
access point was now gone.
Not sure if the update to the kernel did it or it would have happened any way .
Going to format the SD card and start with a fresh copy of 2017-02-12 and see if
Access point comes back but not tonight tired of doing apt-get update upgrade etc
over and over.

Quick question are you telling me the latest non-testing image Nov 6 2016 on the latest images
page would produce a working Access point at 192.168.8.1 if I did the kernel update?
versions of the images would produce working wireless.
