Updating the CloudWatcher firmware from the Solo

1) Download the latest firmware:       http://lunatico.es/aagcw/AAG_CloudWatcher571.has  

... and copy it to the "tmp" folder of your Solo:

Mobirise

2) Connect via ssh (terminal) to the Solo. First get "putty" (www.putty.org), and connect as in here:

Mobirise

Remember:

user pi,

password cloudwatcher. 

3) Once in the Solo, type the following: 

pi@aagsolo: ~$ cd /tmp (press enter)

pi@aagsolo:/tmp$ sudo service aagsolo stop 

At this point power off your CloudWatcher (not your Solo!!

pi@aagsolo:/tmp$ /home/aagsolo/HASFileLoader update f=AAG_CloudWatcher571.has

You'll see some messages, then dots every second, please power on your CloudWatcher. All going well, you'll see a list of numbers, increasingly in hundreds, up to 9728:

HAS file will be [AAG_CloudWatcher571.has]

 9728 Done

At this point, the CloudWatcher is updated. Just relaunch the Solo service: 

pi@aagsolo:/tmp$ sudo service aagsolo start 

and exit. 

pi@aagsolo:/tmp$ exit 

A couple of notes:

- some early Solos do not seem able to update the firmware; if that's your case, I'm afraid there's nothing we can do, you'll have to resort to the Windows tools. 

- in the future - once your CloudWatcher is at version 5.71 or more recent, you won't need to physically power it off then on, it includes now a reset logic. In this case, instead of "HASFileLoader update f=..." typing "HASFileLoader resup f=..." will both reset the unit and start the update.
