OpenSprinkler Forums Hardware Questions OpenSprinkler Beagle (OSBo) unified firmware update – Valves do not open anymore Reply To: unified firmware update – Valves do not open anymore



Hey Ray!
at first congratulations for your great diy-project -really awesome!
I did the update exact in the same way as clivep did:

ubuntu@arm:~/OpensprinklerGen2$ sudo reboot

–> everything looks good, but the valves do not work or make a noise

Version number changes after updating from 2.0.3 to 2.1.5 (1)
For daily sprinkling I currently use a second sd-card with the Version 2.0.3 but using the unified firmware would be nice.

Thanks for your time
