read carefully copy upgrade.bin to /tmp/ run "md5sum upgrade.bin" verify that is the correct md5 if so run "sysupgrade -n -v /tmp/upgrade.bin"

its always a good idea to google things that confuse you such as what a md5 is usage of md5sum why its so important its the same md5

this knowlage is useful

beta is for testing and reporting

your wlan0 issue can be fixed try searching the forum "wifi detect"

your best tool in learning is the following google . google and pratcice using google

You don't create a new md5 sum, you check the md5 with what they post on the firmware page.

So from your computer, or pineapple;

barry@NSA-Unit1:~/Downloads$ md5sum upgrade.bin 
30a58988e679b45a4744c7a358845f3e  upgrade.bin

The site shows this.

Released: 2014-04-09 21:25:07
Download: 1.3.0-BETA-2
MD5: 30a58988e679b45a4744c7a358845f3e

The MD5's match, so your download didn't get borked, which means the flash will work.

I've actually had linux iso's get slightly mangled, but would work as a live cd, but would fail every time you tried to use it to do a full install.
