Installing on unstable release for Raspberry PI 3 B+.
TEST PROCEDURE:
Got freedombox running
set up server name
set up Let’s encrypt - OK browse with green lock
via ssh shutdown now
waited 3 minutes
Power off/ on
Installed Openvpn
entered VPN setup
setup completed – from past experience it was accessible from android phone
sudo shutdown now
waited 3 minutes
power off / on
first ping – timeout
second ping IP – destination unreachable
attempt to browse via dyndns – The connection has timed out
attepmt to browse via freedombox.local – destination unreachable

I tried reading logs from sd card but got permission denied even trying sudo vi
