Openspot2 Not working

Post by Andy_M3UAR »

Good evening all,

I have neglected my openspot2 for a little while as i haven't used it ,and i have come to use it today and it is constantly flashing red and yellow and its hard to tell if it is updating firmware or if it is a bclo preventing it lights, maybe its just me but they seem awfully similar, anyway i have left it for about half an hour and it is still exactly the same, is there anywhere i can find an up to date firmware online so i can download it and try and load that to it ?

Or alternatively any other tips much appreciated

I should also add my wifi router has been changed since i last used it as well

So red/yellow is the indication its trying to do a firmware update. The download does take a while since its kinda done in the background and not an immediate high speed download.

Can you gain access to the OS2 via http and check the dashboard to see what version you last had?

Its up to FW version 77 at the moment.

Norbert can tell if you are too far behind for it to do an update and they have to provide you a file to manually install or not

But I would say to just let it run for a while and see if it eventually completes the download and then loads and reboots.

Good morning

Thanks for the reply, unfortunately I can't access the dashboard through the web address or the sharkrf link and it doesn't show up in my device list on my router either and I can't get it to switch into program mode to add in the new browser details , I left it running while I was asleep and have just woken up and its still flashing the same lights
