Firmware R066
« on: September 19, 2014, 02:04:24 pm »
We've just released firmware R066 for the Almond+. To install R066 you have to log in to the web UI on your Almond+ to update the firmware, as this version will not be released via the Software Update option in the LCD UI. You can find installation instructions here -

Note: Once you've installed this firmware, if your Almond+ ship with firmware prior to R064 you will have to perform a factory LCD touch screen test. Simply follow the on-screen instructions and once you've finished the LCD touch screen test. You won't lose any associated sensors by installing this firmware and this is a one time only thing. It might reset your Wi-Fi settings, but nothing else. Please make sure both Wi-Fi radios are enabled before you update from prior firmwares to R064, or you'll have to do a hard reset after installing this firmware to pass the LCD touch screen test.

This is a minor release which includes a lot of smaller bug fixes and some minor feature additions and improvements.

You can download the firmware here - (link updated as of 24/09/2014)
