MMDVM Firmware Update 1.1.0

There is a new version of the MMDVM software available. I just updated my ZUMspot using the script provided by Pi-Star.

To perform an update, follow these steps

  1. go to the Admin page. Change the URL so it points to “/admin/expert/”, you should only have to add the “/expert/”.
  2. On the menu select “SSH Access”
  3. Log into the shell using the same username and password you used for the Admin page
  4. enter the command “sudo pistar-zumspotflash”
  5. at the end of the update it will ask you to press “any key” to restart.
  6. I had to do a power cycle before mine would work after the update.

That’s it. Easy to do.

Here are notes from the recent updates:

    It doesn’t work for me, when I select SSH Access I get: refused to connect 😦

      I haven’t heard of anyone having problems like that before. Are you running 3.4.11? If not, you should run updates. I think SSH came in around 3.4.6.

  • Duncan

    I’m running 3.4.8

    • Michael

      You should run updates from the menu a couple of times

      • Duncan

        I have the latest version 3.4.8

      • Michael

        3.4.8 is not the latest version. The current version is 3.4.11.

      • Duncan

        No matter how many times I update everything else updates apart from the dashboard which remains at 3.4.8 🙁

  • Martin

    what is the command to update to a specific firmware version. Like rolling it back?
    I think it just bricked my mmdvm_hs

    • Michael

      I don’t know the commands to roll back the version. Everything I have is about updating to the current version. Sorry.
