Title: UI7 1.7.855 Firmware Crashing VeraLite
Post by: aaronsquire on October 20, 2016, 05:37:41 pm
Veralite won't reboot after installing the Veralite 1.7.855 Firmware update.

So I: Flashed controller back to factory UI5
Updated back to UI7. I had 1.7.649 of UI7 working on the unit. Again tried to install latest firmware and now the blue power light flashes for a few seconds and then unit powers off. Controller never starts. 

Running Version 1.7.649 Works
Latest Version 1.7.855 Crashes Unit

Has anyone used this firmware with a 460 and expansion card?  My expansion card doesnt seem to be working now.

Thanks,

Pete

Edit: needed to powercycle after updating

The best thing to do is to contact Customer Care, support@getvera.com and CC me.

They have access to your last saved configuration so that it can be restored into your Vera 3.

Yep, spent a few hours fixing the unit.  ::) Was just adding a new device and decided, why not give them a chance and update the firmware for the first time in over a year.

Had to firmware flash the unit back to UI5 (and get an XP computer apparently) and then come back to UI7. And then finally load back in the backup I created.

Wish I had seen the 50% off sale on HomeSeer. I will be making the jump as I am reminded of how poorly the Vera systems are managed until I have to interface with it again. I currently have it performing very few tasks as it often seems to disappoint.

I think I am going to have to say farewell to Vera. Been fighting this for months. With the old firmware most of my devices now say they can't detect device. If I update to the latest firmware or even the beta firmware unit crashes. I never got a response from support in October and doubt I will get a response to my email yesterday. I'm going to flash it one last time just long enough to unlink all my devices so I can move them to different controller.
