BT Home Hub 4 Firmware Versions

Hello BT'ers,

I've got an HH4 and the firmware information showing is:
4.7.5.1.83.8.130.1.2 | Last updated 02/06/13

However, this is not the latest version listed @ http://bt.custhelp.com/app/answers/detail/a_id/13073/~/how-can-i-check-the-firmware-version-on-my-bt...

This indicates it should be: 4.7.5.1.83.8.130.1.5.1.1

Is there a way to force the update or manually update?

Thank you, Mark
Sage

Re: BT Home Hub 4 Firmware Versions

Hey John,

From what im reading, you are saying that the version # on the BT site is wrong and that my version of 4.7.5.1.83.8.130.1.2 is newer than 4.7.5.1.83.8.130.1.5.1.1?

Normally version numbers go up and the vendor version history is normally correct, so this leaves me a little confused!

Theres an even newer version, mine updated on 31/05/13.

 

When i got the HomeHub4  on 23/05/13 my initial firmware was 4.7.5.1.83.8.130.1.2

On the 25/05/13 it updated to 4.7.5.1.83.8.130.1.5.1.1

and now after the update on the 31/05/13 its  4.7.5.1.83.8.130.1.10

Yep, that seems to be about right.

It updated to 4.7.5.1.83.8.130.1.5.1.1 and this morning to 4.7.5.1.83.8.130.1.10

That must be the latest version, thanks Stuey.

John, FYI, even when the date shows when it updated that does not necessarily mean its at the newest version. My version went from 1.2 > 1.5.1.1 > 1.10

That is more consistent, vendors do not normally go backwards in version numbering for newer versions.

Re: BT Home Hub 4 Firmware Versions

Red_Snow Just as a side note, it's not a step backwards in Vendor number, I agree it is horrid practice though. They mean 1.10 as in one point ten, as opposed to how it appears at first glance.
