Paste the URL into the

Advanced:

URL for Vera custom firmware: 

Make sure you "DO NOT PRESERVE SETTINGS".  If you do you may brick the device.

Of course make sure you have a backup available to restore from prior to the latest firmware update.
Really? I have always preserved settings and never had any issues. I have done that on Vera Edge many times now and also on Vera Light that I had before. I am not sure why preserving settings would brick the device... but if there were reports of that happening, I guess that's the way to do it. I never had any issues though.

I was thinking the same thing.  I've only downgraded two or three times but always preserved settings.  Maybe someone more knowledgeable than me can shed some light on the issue?

If there is doubt call Vera support.  That was the recommendation I received.

Does the back up restore the "backed up " firmware version also or just the settings

I've heard people say that the "back up" will restore the firmware.  I called vera and they thought it would also but when I upgraded to 7.0.7, I tried to restore my back up (7.0.5) and it would not roll back the firmware.  So I had to have vera support do it from their side.  That was the phone call that inspired this thread because I was on hold for 25 minutes.  I've also read that there is an internal flag on the device that vera has to set in order to roll back.

I called support and tested myself restoring from backup does not restore firmware.  I tested on Edge only.

Right, I have done this many times as well - restoring backup does not restore the firmware. I believe it contains your vera configuration (apps, devices, scenes, etc.) and z-wave network configuration only. You have to restore firmware from one of the links and either do it while preserving your existing configuration (which again I never had problems with personally) or use the restore to factory option and then restore from a backup.

I went back to 7.0.5 and everything is back to normal for me at this point.

Do you have a link of any recovery firmware for Vera Edge ?
This was possible with UI5 for Vera 3/Lite : http://download.mios.com/firmware/latest-vera3-recovery-firmware.bin

I don't have a link for that... If anyone posts one, I'll add it to the top of the links list.

Comment on UI7 7.05.  It does NOT have the Monoprice motion issue.  It does work.  However, it does have the Onkyo receiver issue where it causes some networking issue with your Onkyo networked receivers which prevents them from accessing your network.

I just attempted to downgrade from 7.10 to 7.09, and while all appeared to work, on the first access, the device came up as new - no configuration.  Tons of generic devices, but no rooms, no apps, etc.

I chose to retain settings.  When I looked at the firmware, it's still showing that I'm on 1.7.1320 (7.10).  So it seems the only thing I successfully did (if that) is wipe my configuration...

Should I not have been able to apply the 7.09 and when it comes up, make no other changes?

FWIW, I was able to restore my back up from just prior (including z-wave network).  So at least I'm not back to a factory reset.

EDIT:  I hate cross-posting, and that's exactly what I did - sorry.  I'm posted my request for help under a more appropriate thread here:  http://forum.micasaverde.com/index.php/topic,33201.180.html
