Cant get shadowsocks to work

Device: TP-Link RE200 rev4 OpenWrt 22.03.2 r19803-9a599fee93

setup as a wifi repeater in AP+STA mode using travelmate and working as expected....

internet<------(BSSID1)<------ OpenWrt AP+STA(BSSID2) <------wifi devices

the problem:

trying to get a transparent proxy kind of setup on openwrt to forward all traffic to a remote personal shadowsocks server bypassing local blocks and for privacy

note: openvpn and wireguard are not an option due to local DPI blocks... only some vpn services work (eg. Psiphon Pro app) but no openwrt support

i can connect normallly (for now anyways) to shadowsocks server directly with my pc and phone...etc

followed the wiki and the recipe at github. com/openwrt/packages/blob/master/net/shadowsocks-libev/README.md#recipes

I followed the instructions to the letter but cant get it to work....

DNS is not resolving
but i can ping 8.8.8.8, however traceroute first hop is the gateway at BSSID1

I tried to add a static dns 8.8.8.8, the dns resolve but still traceroute going normally through BSSID1

after countless factory resets, fresh sysupgrades and starting over, still cant figure it out....

the sys log is flooded by this error

daemon.err /usr/bin/ss-redir[2352]: accept: No file descriptors available

I am admittedly a copy-paster n00b when it comes to anything linux and I cant figure out what's going on after days of researching i find myself at a block ....

maybe I am missing a dependency?
