Roomba 980 Update to 2.2.11-4

Postby BacaraVac » August 19th, 2017, 12:31 pm

Just noticed my 980 is now running a new version. Not sure what’s changed, but when I started it for the first time after update it seems to vacuum straight lines now parallel with walls. Before it always started at a slight angle. Not sure if update or just luck. Anymore info?

Just fixed one, bin was bad, easy fix, new bin.
It updated 8/18 to jsalvati/best-buy-d. A demonstration unit?

Not so easy fix to get it to update, No Maps, original version Software, wonder where they got this demo.
Takes many setups to connect to network.
Guess I'll call IRobot when I can.

Set up serial port. connect usb cable to computer and bot. open program, Set new connection com"x"

I have to give kudos to iRobot.
The Best Buy Demo 980 is updating and may take a couple of hours.
I haven't had a chance to call them.
It is doing it on its own.
Looked at app and bot had an ! on settings, about, robot software, request update, pressed and updating.

Oh yeah, that's worth noting too: Seems like a recent app update added the ability to explicitly check for software updates. Hopefully that alleviates some of the mystery-waiting that used to be required.

I send the request every day and still no update. Wi-fi is strong. No one knows why. Solution from iRobot...replace it.

I have 3 here. 2 on 2.9 and 1 Demo.
The Demo is continually failing update.
I know it is probably my service provider because they STINK!
Error please connect your device to the internet and try again.
I think I'll try a reset and try again as that fixed one of the others in the past.

Update, reset via APP. Wouldn't connect, reset modem and router, connected. Also moved Bot to room with router.
Update, once again, has been requested.
Time will tell if this works.
Router sniffer shows a lot of trash on connection from IP.

Update failed, Please connect your device to the internet...
Too many dropped packets, I have to go thru my home networks connections then check IP again.
Then I'll call Time Warner yet again.
