Upgrading La Fonera to 0.7.1 r2 (aka

If you open the fonera, a requirement for this is , that you have to reset you fonera to an older firmware version. (If you have flashed the 0.7.1 r2, you'll have to wait till Kolofonium is released.)

But if you want also wants the benefits of the newer firmware version, and ensuring your access via SSH, you'll have to update it manually.

By the way: At the moment, currently fon only send "hotfixes" via the automatic update. As hot fixes are not permanently flashed, so there is a way back.

Reseting the La Fonera.

Sometimes its really handy to factory reset the La Fonera. It is for examining the firmware version installed or if it choked on some modifications, of simply too protect your data if you planning to give it away.

I'm sure you have also a good reason for reseting the La Fonea.


Here's my method. The difference to other solutions in the web is, that this one is the only one worked for me, and that several people told me, that this is the only reliable way-of-doing they know. Of course you do not have to open the case for opening it, which will helping in avoiding voiding warranties. )

Inside the La Fonera

Wie angekündigt, gibt es hier mehr Details zur La Fonera.

Bevor es losget, vorweg ein kleiner Hinweis am Rande: FON sieht es nicht so gerne, wenn man was an den Innereien was verändert. Da dies in den FON-Bedingungen  (Punkt 6.7 of the general conditions.) so drin steht muss jeder selber entscheiden, ob er die Box öffnet, oder wie sehr er FON vertraut.

Zu dem Thema möchte ich noch einen eigenen Artikel zu schreiben, so dass ich hier nicht näher drauf eingehen werde.

(Wer sich unsicher ist, sollte besser die Finger davon lassen.)
