I just tried to install image lede-17.01.2-sunxi-sun7i-a20-lamobo-r1-squashfs-sdcard.img (downloaded from https://downloads.lede-project.org/releases/17.01.2/targets/sunxi/generic/lede-17.01.2-sunxi-sun7i-a20-lamobo-r1-squashfs-sdcard.img.gz) onto my Lamobo BananaPi R1 ( Allwinner A20 - sunxi - generic ). I used the following command to flash the image to my 32 GB SD-card:
dd if=lede-17.01.2-sunxi-sun7i-a20-lamobo-r1-squashfs-sdcard.img of=/dev/sdb
The device boots as expected, but when trying to change the root password via LuCI, I get the following error message:
Unknown Error, password not changed!
The corresponding system log is as follows:
Thu Jun 8 21:29:05 2017 auth.err passwd: can't create '/etc/shadow+': File exists
Thu Jun 8 21:29:05 2017 auth.err passwd: can't update password file /etc/shadow
Via SSH and passwd command, the error message is essentially the same:
passwd: can't create '/etc/shadow+': File exists
passwd: can't update password file /etc/shadow

I also tried the ext4 release as available at
This one works as expected (unfortunately, WIFI is still highly unstable an far from being usable).
Did I make any mistake with the squashfs version, or is there some issue in the image?
Thanks and best regards,
