It's been a while since hotfix_160309_final and these been several modification and improvements of the shield by members of this forum so i decided to put these into hotfix _160528
just follow instruction and you should be fine.
The hotfix has the lastest
fw_upgrade 8.3.1 and all corresponding files
openssl ver 1.0.2h-1
new theme for the Shield which is new selectable between old and new theme
syntax errors corrected in files.
You must have hotfix 160210 and 160309 installed before coping these files over to the shield.
All that these hot-fixes are just files that overwrite one's which are already there with modification / improvements. Saying that the two files ending in.ipk are installed with opkg.
run these commands by typing or cutting and paste straight into the command line
opkg install ./openssl-util_1.0.2h-1_octeon.ipk
once installed type
opkg info openssl-util
which will show that the openssl 1.0.2h-1 has been installed ( you are look at the version number is 1.0.2h-1).
opkg install luci-theme-material_0.2.17-1_all.ipk
this will install new themes
now copy the folders and one file
from your computer to the shields root folder, you will get a message about over writing files that is correct and proceed.
you must reboot now and then run fw_upgrade.
Once you have restarted the shield if you go to system --> system --> Language and style --> Design you can now select which theme you want.
i've updated the post to reflect a mistake by me to include a file which shows the new firmware version date, the hotfix zip file now includes it but if you have already downloaded the hotfix just copy this file .hf_date and place in root folder overwriting old version, sorry for the mistake,
After installing the hotfix my DHCP leases did not renew (i'm running in router mode). So I reset my Shield to 1.51. I could not get internet connectivity after installing the 160210 hotfix. I am wondering if my 1.51 had it since it was installed by Jabari just before shutdown. Anyway, I reset the shield, installed the 16309 hotfix and this hotfix and modified the DHCP config file to accommodate router mode and all appears to be good now. Did I miss anything?
