[Release][Stable] 2.8.0 Firmware

Hey everyone,

Since the last stable version (2.7.0) there have been many changes to the pineapple firmware. In version 2.8.0 you will find all changes from 2.7.0-2.7.7 plus the changes from the changelog below:

Changelog:

-Package Repositories
    -Added a 2.8.0 stable repository. No more issues with mismatched kernel versions. You will however get a "collected errors"    message after the install is complete. Just ignore them if the only issue is a checksum mismatch.
    -Added an opkg workaround.
-Various Fixes
    -Fixed a couple of broken links
    -Bugfixes

Now, the changelog doesn't seem very large and granted, it isn't. But remember that this stable firmware includes all the fixes from the development firmwares. Stable firmwares are meant to be just that - stable. Their aim is not to add much functionality in comparison to the last development upgrade but rather to provide a stable, reliable firmware. We think we have come a long way since the last stable release and believe it will be a good base for the upcoming 3.0.0 release.

Download: Over the air through the web-interface. (alternatively at http://cloud.wifipin...e.com?downloads)
MD5: 6ac34bd228a3cc029d1f374b7248fd19
Note: If coming from a firmware version below 2.6.4, wait for the pineapple to fully boot back up after flashing then navigate to http://172.16.42.1:1471

As usual, please leave any feedback in this thread.

We hope you enjoy this release, it feels like one of the most stable yet!

Ive upgraded to 2.8.0 but my sd card inside my huawei modem will not mount, it mounts fine on 2.7.7 and all earlier firmwares, it is showing in /dev as sda but 2.8 just seems to ignore the fstab and if I issue mount /dev/sda it mounts as sda1 and swap as sda2

I camt seem to be able to find a fix for this, every time i reboot I

have to issue mount /dev/sda /usb, I get an error message failed:

invalid argument but it still mounts ok to usb, its a bit of a pain

having to issue the mount command everytime though
