Yun Rev 2 and AWS IoT setup failing

I hope i can explain this well, i am fairly new to posting.

I am trying to get my Arduino Yun Rev 2 up and running with AWS IoT. I have followed many of the posts, especially the tutorial recommended by Amazon. I get stuck where many others do at "opkg install distribute" and there doesn't seem to be a distribute package for the new Yun.

Also, easy_install pip doesn't work, meaning easy_install not recognized.

I have found this AWS IoT Github but it looks outdated, as the shell scripts run the above outdated "install distribute".

Has anyone had success getting the Yun v2 up on AWS IoT? If not, is there a better board to use for AWS IoT?
