It seems as if this file is no longer available in the nightly download folder. So for those of us that are having issues updating the firmware on our controllers, where can we get the file? I have been trying to install the nightly 7.3 build but the controller will not update over the network.

Where can we get the jive.bin file locally in the directory of SC or the latest nightly jive.bin on the website so we can update manually?

Thanks.

I have the same situation here: for some reason the controller will not update via my network (while the jive.bin is complete in the cache folder).

You can update via the sd-card; get the bin from
update.slimdevices.com/update/firmware/
The newest is at the moment in the 7.2.1 folder (there was one in the 7.3 folder, but that disappeared).

That was part of the question. Where, on my local host, is jive.bin stored? You mention in the cache folder? I could easily get it onto an sd card if I could find it on my local machine.

Like Teus said, it's in your SC cache folder. Where your cache folder is depends mostly on what OS you're running. In the SC web ui, go to Settings > Status and near the bottom it will tell you where your cache folder is.

I think the update function is broken ? i have the latest 7.3 I have downgraded to r2873 due to a bug in r2907.

Never the less when i go to the "Software update" menu I see the updated software is available text but the version is "?" instead of r2907 which i have in my cache folder ?

Noob question from me, does the controller get the jive file from the internet instead of the local cache (as 7.3 branch is empty that would explain it ) ? if so do you update the local cache to ?

The content of the jive.version file in 7.3 is:
"
7.2 r2907
root@debian-build #54 Fri Sep 5 02:19:12 PDT 2008
"

never the less i would go here:
http://update.slimdevices.com/update/firmware/
and here:
http://update.slimdevices.com/update/firmware/7.2/ and fetch the r2873 until r2907 is superseded by something better.

And use the SD card method to down/upgrade.

As I suspected, there is no jive.bin in that cache folder. I checked there last evening, and just confirmed it.

So what's the deal? Does anyone have any idea where to get jive.bin for 7.3?

It's here r2907 is/was the jive for 7.3:

http://update.slimdevices.com/update/firmware/7.2.1/

r2907 is also the jive for 7.2.1, this was the one for 7.3 in my jive.verson file in my 7.3 install.
And the one that was installed some days ago when I installed the 7.3 that was current then.

but if you actually read my last reply, i think you should use r2873 on 7.3 until a next version is released.
Theres is probably a very good reason for removing it, I found one serious bug in it, there could be more.
Beta testing is fun you got to see the latest development, but things like this (or worse )is to be expected a beta IS for testing things.
There was no significant difference between 2873 and 2907 that was apparent to an end user like me.

Interesting. I will give it a shot. Thanks for the info. Perhaps the update over LAN would be working if there was actually a jive.bin file in the cache folder?
