rovio will not connect after firmware v.5.03 update

RichardP's picture

I am using XP and had downloaded and installed Rivio Siftware Installer v.2.3 from the page.

Before I saw a page to run my Rovio, it told me to install the firmware.  From the same page I downloaded and installed the firmware.  But since then it will not connect to my Rovio and the kittle on/off light does not lite up.

Is there a way un do the installs and start over.  My network is fine.  All so the lights around Rovio light up fine.

Any suggestions?

Avoiding low battery auto dock routine?

Has somebody already found out how to avoid the auto dock routine getting initialized on low battery state?

One reason why I want to stop the Rovio from starting to automatically drive back to the charging dock is that I installed some other hardware on top of the unharmed Rovio that blocks the camera arm from moving upwards.

I think there are two options to stop the Rovio from driving "back home":

1. Direct firmware hack (changing some values with a hex editor).

2. Modifying (open) source code and compiling the firmware with the ARM Developer Suite 1.2.

Why do I get an awful sound from Rovio?

albertcolo's picture

It happens only to me or is it just normal?

I'm talking about the sound I get from rovio using internet explorer. It's awful and I barely can't make out the sound I get. However if I use chrome or mozilla or whatever explorer there is, the sound is good. So... why it happens only with IE?

Is it an isolated problem or maybe is my rovio who is malfunctioning?

I make clear that I tried in 4 computers whith windows7 and xp too. And using IE7, IE8 and IE9.
