Step 2.2 has pins 4 and 5 reversed on the picture. I believe the description on the step on the right side is correct. The actual shipped connector has them in this sequence: BLACK, RED, GREEN, YELLOW. On your pic it's ...YELLOW, GREEN.

Can you connect to the device if you don't have a WiFi connection to the internet? I'm sitting at a park with my car charging and no WiFi signal except my OpenEVSE and can't seem to get any data from it.

Does the EVSE AP username and password need to be changed? Is the AP still accessable after I get the WiFi module connected to my home network? If the WiFi at my house goes down for some reason can someone connect to the openevse AP?
