Upgrading FAQ
« on: June 20, 2011, 10:04:15 am »
WARNING: Many users have tried to install a beta firmware that was not formally issued to them by using a link that has been mentioned in these forums. Please be aware that these releases are not stable, can contain errors and should only be used by the beta users who are assigned to test them or on explicit advice from MCV tech support.

Welcome dear user ,

If you are looking to upgrade your Vera to the latest (official) firmware, please read this first before clicking "OK"

In this FAQ/Quick Reference i have tried to capture some usefull information that would help all of us to have a quick overview of current events, usefull links and other information.

Currently the following links are posted as quick reference:

UI3 url: http://download.mios.com/betafirmware/wl500gP_Luup_ui3-1.1.329-1.trx

(Note: This post was originally made with links to 994/319 firmware, but the SQ Remote iPhone app needed a last minute change so we re-posted these updated versions)" As per official announcment here.

To downgrade to any of the mentioned released take these steps:

1. Copy the url (link) of the build you want to install.
2. Find the last good backup of your system and have it available.
3. Go to the firmwaretab of your UI and copy the link for the desied build into the box: URL for MiOS custom firmware and hit "UPGRADE".
4. Select "FACTORY DEFAULTS when prompted in the process.
5. Wait for Vera to install the selected firmware.
6. Restore the selected backup in the backupsection of your UI. Provide the path to the backup by clicking "Select file" en then hit the "RESTORE" button

NOTE: restoring to factory defaults will remove all scenes, plugins and other code. It will NOT clear your Z-wave database.

If the upgrade should fail (which can happen but is usually not a very big problem), post a message here maybe we can help. If not, turn to MCV tech support.
