BETA Firmware going official?


#1

Hey guys

Am running the BETA firmware 6.1.0.201309130347-r7736 build which is due to expire on Fri Dec 13 09:59:59 EST 2013.

Just wondering if you have a official release date for this firmware yet? It’s been running perfectly since installing it, and i want to ensure we’ll have the current BETA functionality moving forward from that date.

Cheers

Hey Richard,

Glad to hear the Beta firmware is working out good for you. There is no official release date yet, but the current functionality will remain intact.

Hi again Tim

2 weeks until the current firmware (6.1.0.201309130347-r7736 build) will expire according to our devices.

What happens when it “expires”? Does it stop working?

Cheers
Richard

WoW! Expiring BETA FW? Now I’m extra glad that I stayed clear of the Beta. What happens when the Beta expires, does the hardware self destruct like something out of Mission Impossible? :wink:

6.1 public beta is going live in a few hours :slight_smile:

When a beta firmware expires, the router will continue to work as normal. It’s just that the UI will be locked to show only the firmware update page. From there, you should upload a newer beta or the GA release.

Hi Scott,

We sent out a customer newsletter to announce 6.1 beta. I thought you would have been on the list.
