i just update an already used t-beam with the newest firmware. Before I erased all.
After the flash process it is not possible to set the chanel name.
I used the command:
meshtastic --ch-set name “My Channel” --ch-index 0
I get the confirmation in the command line tool, but at the end it doesn´t change the chanel name.
Other settings like region can be change.
this is a known bug that has been fixed in the next versions, you can upgrade here: Releases · meshtastic/Meshtastic-Android · GitHub
Do you mean it is a bug in android app?
I didn‘t use android, but the cmd in win10.
oh, scratch that. what version of the Python CLI are you using?
b.t.w. flashing and configuring of several completely new t-beams worked fine. Just my “old”, previoused flashed board, will not accept the name change.
check what you get from:
latest is 1.2.54
device firmware and the python CLI received a lot of updates recently, check if updating to the latest versions resolve the issue.
I used 1.2.53 and just updated to 1.2.54. But unfortunatelly it still doesn´t work…
I use the cmd command:
meshtastic --ch-set name MyName --ch-index 0
Did you already try to factory reset your device ?
meshtastic --set factory_reset 1
After that maybe your namechange is accepted.
No, i did not try this. I actually was not aware of the factory reset possibility.
I thought, that the „erase“ at the beginning of a completely firmware flash delete everything anyway.
I‘ll give it a try.
Mhh, didn´t work.
No Idea how to solve this issue… ???
I tried everything. Even flashing another (already flashed with 1.2.17) tbeam with 1.2.50 via batch-file.
Same issue, so it seems to be a generic issue.
Then I flashed the the “firmware-tbeam-126.96.36.199dcfdd.bin” via ESPHome-Flasher-1.3.0-Windows-x64.exe windows tool.
After that it was possible to change the channel name and every other setting.
As last step I reflashed 1.2.50 via batch-file and again it was not possible to change the channel name.
Something is very strange here.
Is there any possibility to bring a pre-flashed tbeam to a completely factory reset?
Something like “deleteAllcomplete.bin”?
I used the “device-install.bat -f firmware-filename.bin” to flash the devices and that doesn´t work.
After that I just flashed the firmware-tbeam-188.8.131.52dcfdd.bin via ESP tool.
I think the major question is how to get from the old partition to the new one.
I´m wondering if I am the only one having this issue…?!?
device-install will erase and install a fresh copy of the firmware.
I can confirm changing the channel works on my end after
device-install fw 1.2.50 on a tbeam v1.1
1.2.52 is out. check if that makes any changes.
I already tested 1.2.52 yesterday.
Flashing completely fresh boards (mit softrf preinstalled) worked without any problem.
no ideas how to get the partitions fine?
