Re: Firmware update problem

I believe you have used the incorrect firmware for a true zumspot board. If indeed you have the official zumspot board then you use the command:
sudo pistar-zumspotflash rpi
I think you can just reflash the zumspot firmware with the correct one and it will fix your problem.

Re: Nextion Driver not Loading

Sometimes when installing the ON7LDS Nextion Driver, the driver file doesn't get installed into the "/dev" folder. Go back and follow the installation instructions again and download the driver file again into the "/tmp" folder and then run the 'check_installation' script and it will tell you if the...

Slow switching between Dashboard and Admin page Pi-Star 4.0.0

I have been experiencing long delay times when switching between the Dashboard and Admin pages using Pi-Star 4.0.0 RC-3 and RC-4. I have version 4.0.0 installed on two Pi3b+ units, one Pi3b unit and one Pi0w unit, all using Zumboard GPIO modem boards. When I first reboot the Pi's the Dashboard to Ad...

Re: iPhone 6 to jumbospot

Did you try to change the Iphone SSID name from the typical Apple id which looks like "Joe's Iphone" to something simple. Pi-Star doesn't like special characters.

Re: Increase display hang time?

The RF and NET mode timers on the configuration page control how long a mode remains locked on after the mode activity ends. This also affects the OLED display time.

Re: Unable to access ZUMspot-RPi Zero W

Try using the IP address of the Pi in the browser address field. If you do not know the Pi IP address download an IP address finder such as "Fing" for your wireless phone (Android or IOS) and let it search for all the IP addresses on your home network. Hopefully it will find the IP address of your P...

Re: RSSI Reading with Jumbospot

Did you check in the Pi-Star Expert -- Rssi Dat section to see if the Rssi values are there? If not, search the Pi-Star Facebook group for Rssi and you should find a list of the values to type in to make it work.

Re: No Tx / Rx after Firmware Update Zumspot

Sounds like you may have upgraded with the wrong modem type firmware. If you are not using a true zumspot board but are using a jumbospot board then you cannot upgrade using the zumspot firmware but need to use the HS_Hat firmware, also found on the Pi-Star modem upgrade list. You should be able to ...
