It’s almost that time again where we’re planning new firmware for your Whole Home Wi-Fi discs, but this time we’re doing something a bit different.
We’re making it available to early adopters first, prior to the full public release. This new early adopter firmware has already been trialled and tested, but we also wanted to give anyone interested the option to join an early adopter phase and try it prior to the full launch.
We’re also introducing a rollback feature, so you can revert back to the previous release (v1.02.06 build12), should you want to do so.
What’s new? This new version v1.02.08 build02 further improves the overall performance of your Whole Home Wi-Fi network:
How to become an early adopter and upgrade to the latest firmware?
Important – Before beginning, please check your discs are running the latest firmware v1.02.06 build12
If the new firmware is not working as you’d like, try powering off/on all of the discs at the socket and allow them to reconnect and settle. If you still need help afterwards, come back to us on this forum, or contact the helpdesk on 0808 100 6116 or email email@example.com so that we understand your issue and help fix it
I tried this a few days ago. Last night I noticed 2 of my discs have red lights on them. Powering off/on has not fixed them. Going to have to reconnect them via Ethernet, reset and add them as new.
I have a 3-disk system and I upgraded to the version 1.02.08 build02 firmware 2 days ago. The upgrade went smoothly and seemed quicker than previously. Everything has stayed connected since, no problems so far. The signal strength of the 2 disks connected by wifi has improved too for some reason. Also this is the first time I've seen all devices connected to the 'best' disk. They have gradually been moved around since the upgrade.
Is there any other information you'd find useful?
Will the rollback feature still work once this release is out of the early adopter phase?
I updated last night. All looks fine no issues I can see.
I can’t see a rollback feature however.
Just upgraded here and so far so good. To roll back you need to disable the early adopter setting and then do a check for updates it will show you the older version to apply.
