Install blue-merle and randomize IMEI on GL-E750 Mudi

The GL-E750 Mudi is an LTE router. It's particularly interesting because of built-in featues like VPN and Tor support.

Install blue-merle

  1. Update the Mudi to latest firmware, at least 3.215.
  2. Get SSH console access to the Mudi. See upstream docs for details. It might be that you have to change your local SSH config for this to work. See the linked tutorial for details.
  3. Update opkg package list:
    opkg update
  4. Download blue-merle installation package from Github:
    curl -LO
  5. Install blue-merle:
    opkg install blue-merle*.ipk

    2. Restart the Mudi.
    3. Repeat the steps “Update opkg package list” and “Install blue-merle” from above.
