Upgrade WiDirect Software

Updating the software on the WiDirect is simple. Connect to the WiDirect or WiClient over SSH and run these two commands:

sudo yum clean all
sudo yum update awicp*

The device will then check to see if there are any updates. If any are available you will be prompted to press y to confirm the update. The upgrade will overwrite any manual changes that have been made to any PHP files. It is possible custom changes may need to be reapplied. If you have made any custom changes it is a good idea to back those up before updating.

The above upgrade process only works for WiDirects and WiClients on version 1.4 or above. If you are running a version prior to 1.4 then you will need to upgrade to version 1.5 first.
