How to update firmware of Meteostick

Post by admin » Fri Apr 11, 2014 7:51 pm

Firmware of Meteostick can be easily updated with standard Arduino tools. The Meteostick behaves like an Arduino Uno (ATMega 328) and has to be connected via its virtual COM port, configured to 8N1 and 115200 baud. Updating firmware depends a bit of the hardware you use.

When you have a Meteobridge, just plugin the Meteostick and browse to http://ip-of-your-meteobridge/cgi-bin/stickupdate.cgi (please don't type this literally, but insert the LAN IP of your Meteobridge), wait a few seconds. When a success message appears, you are done.

When you have the stick connected to a PC, you All others have to install "avrdude" for their specific OS and upload firmware with a command line like this:

Code: Select all

avrdude -F -b 115200 -c stk500v1 -p m328p -P /dev/ttyUSB0 -U flash:w:/meteostick_v1.2.hex

Meteohubs running 4.9y can now also update Meteostick firmware very easily. Precondition is that Meteohub runs on X86 or Sheevaplug platform.

Just plugin the Meteostick and browse to http://ip-of-your-meteohub/cgi-bin/stickupdate.cgi (please don't type this literally, but insert the LAN IP of your Meteohub), wait a few seconds. When a success message appears, you are done.

If I try to update my Meteostick on my Meteobridge Version 2.2 (Build 2457) I got an error message.

Is there somewhere a way to read the current Firmware Version of the Stick?

I forgot to make corresponding changes to platform WL-330N3G public, is done now. All WL-330N3G will now
be able to update connected Meteosticks after a reboot.

I tired to update my X86 Meteohub from 4.9w to 4.9y today, but I was told that no updates are available. (Interestingly 4.9w itself is no longer listed on the update web page as ever having existed.)
