Software Drive For 8GB Cards for HubPiWi Blue

February 21st, 2017

Good News! We've made the software drive available for the HubPiWi Blue. As per the 16GB Card, please make note of a few things.

- This is a fresh new version of Raspbian Jessie Pixel 1.2 Feburary 2017. This means that you will have a fresh out of the box version of Raspbian, only slightly modified, so that the HubPiWi Blue is compatible.

- This 8GB Card is compatible with both a 16GB card and an 8GB card.

- You will have to write this onto an SD card, like the regular Raspian Jessie. You can use a programmer like Win32 to write the file onto an SD card.

Have a happy time surfing the web on your Pi Zero. 🙂

    Unfortunately dropbox sabotages my download at the moment:
    "Error (429)

    Eventually succeeded with the download.

    Thank you for the work you are putting into this. Some notes, though:
    - the package in its current state appears to be very unstable to me
    - the 8GB version's wireless driver has the "two wifi issue" (which the 16GB version did not), continuously causing strange behaviour (dropped connections, reconnecting one or the other wlan interfaces)
    - rebuilding the driver the way described on http://referencedesigner.com/blog/how-to-fix-two-wifi-issue-on-hubpiwi-blue/5952/ helps of course to get rid of the concurrent mode, but for me after a restart the system was rendered unusable: a couple of minutes after startup and establishing wifi connection it kept freezing

    So far what seems to solve my problems:
    - disabling ipv6 via adding
    net.ipv6.conf.all.disable_ipv6 = 1
    - disabling power save for the wlan interface via adding
    up iw wlan0 set power_save off
    under the respective wpa-conf line
    - disabling power management and auto-suspend via creating
    and adding this line to it:
    options 8723bu rtw_power_mgnt=0 rtw_enusbss=0

    The file in this download does not have an extension.
    Is it an IMG or ISO?
