    Hi!
    I’m using the Beaglebone Black Rev C and bought recently the Opensprinkler extension board for the BBB. After preparing the Hardware and the Valves i installed the recommended SD-Card Image Osbo2 (Aug-06-14). I was glad that everything worked fine and the valves did their job as they should.
    Problems came up after installing the unified-firmware update 2-1-3 for the Osbo. During the installation there was no error message and everything was fine. All programms work, but the valves do not open.
    I tried to repeat the update Process for a few times and there is always the same result. The Valves work fine with the SD-Card Image Osbo2 (Aug-06-14) but nothing happens by using the unified firmware update.

    I hope someone can help me. Maybe someone has a working SD-Card-Image of the osbos unified-firmware??

    Thank you very much in advance.
    Greetings from Germany

    How did you run the Unified Firmware? Note that you have to run it as root or otherwise the GPIO operations are not permitted.

    +1 to this. This is what I get…

    Downloaded and installed the latest (Aug 2014) osbo image. System works OK, valves open etc.

    Now I install the new firmware as follows:

    bin demos OSPi
    [email protected]:~$ git clone https://github.com/OpenSprinkler/OpenSprinklerGen2.git

    Done!
    [email protected]:~/OpenSprinklerGen2$

    No errors, all looks OK. Reboot.

    System appears to function correctly but the valves do not open. Firmware version reported is 2.1.5(1).

    Happy to assist further.

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

    /etc/rc5.d/S20OpenSprinkler.sh -> ../init.d/OpenSprinkler.sh
    Done!
    [email protected]:~/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

    Hi, sorry I am traveling away this week and I don’t have a set of OSBo hardware to test. I will check as soon as I get back on Saturday.
