Firmware upload problem

Recommended Posts

Hi everybody, I made a factory reset on the UM3 and tried to update the firmware to the latest version via USB.

 

It is installing the firmware for at least 2 hours now, still stuck on the ´Installing new firmware. Do not power off printer.´ screen and nothing really happens..

 

 I assume it is not normal, do you know what should I do now??

 

thanks in advance! Federico

Hi federgarrido,

 

You can turn the UM3 on and off and check if it loads. I've checked with the team, it is (almost) impossible to brick the bootloader. 

If it does not load, you can try the recovery image as explained in this topic: 

Good luck and let us know if it works!

Well after 2 hours you might as well power it off and on and see what happens even though it tells you not to.  At this point it's obviously stuck and nothing is going to change until you power cycle it.  You might have to contact your reseller or use the "unbricking" methods referred to in the link above.

What happens when you try to download the new stable firmware?

It would be good to see the messages on the screen and preferably have the log.

Even after it seems to be stuck, using the System -> Maintenance -> Diagnostics -> Dump logs to USB might give some insights in what might be going wrong.

You can upload your logs here so we can take a look at them.

 

The firmware does not reset to the factory version. As for the latest version; you can download the files manually here: http://software.ultimaker.com/jedi/releases/ You can use 

http://software.ultimaker.com/jedi/releases/latest.tar.xz and http://software.ultimaker.com/jedi/releases/latest.tar.xz.sig for the latest version. You will need both files.

We've looked at the logs, it seems something in the filesystem has become corrupt. Because of this, the UM3 cannot test if the firmware is signed by us. If you can, the recovery process wil save you the time of replacing the unit. If you cannot do that or don't want to, please talk to your supplier to get a replacement unit. Sorry this happend to you!

This is crappy, there must be a better way with a hot fix or so. I have counted a number of members having this problem so it must be possible to do in a SW manner resolving this. 

I have upgraded a number of versions without problems. There must be a bug in the latest 4.1 upgrade.

Thanks a lot for the logs @Polarice ... I've seen something strange happening in your case that warrants further investigation!

For those who want to see for themselves (and maybe have similar messages): see boot-5.log...

 

Edited:

Can you do the following:

1. Reboot the printer

2. Then upgrade the firmware?

 

It looks like your /tmp (tmpfs) is full which causes problems. Rebooting the printer clears it completely.

Hello together,

 

i have a similiar problem with our new UM3.

Can't update the Firmware.

 

Tried Wifi/Cabel and USB only.

 

USB just says failed and Wifi shows a HTML Code wich need's aprox. 5 second to scroll trough.

I have Images and Logfiles if the uploading works.

 

Thanks People

 

Alexander

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
