i had a long conversation with irobot on twitter, on their live chat and over email. It took me about 2 hours to convince them the links on their site to the scooba update utility were broken. For some reason, in all that time, they seemed incapable of simply clicking on the same links i was pasting them to see for themselves and just kept sending me the same page over and over. Robot-like, ironically.

Anyway, they finally realised I wasn't winding them up and replied:

"It does appear that the link is not working and the page is missing. We will need to research this, please DM us an email address and a member of our support team will research and reach out to assist."


So hopefully it will be fixed soon. Worth prodding them as well if you want it. They haven't intentionally made it unavailable.

finally found a copy (here, if you want it too), plugged in the 450 and the updater says I can upgrade to 1.2.8, but now I'm too scared to press the button lol. It's been so long since support was withdrawn I know if something bricks the scooba I have no back-up plan :think:

They begin with a forward move for a couple of feet, then change direction and repeat once more then begin a clockwise circle movement unit a bumper sensor is triggered then its off to random movements.


One thing I wasn’t quite certain of when reading this thread - do you feel that the update was worth doing? Was the performance significantly better after updating?

There did seem to be an improved application of cleaning fluid during a run.
