    I also have the same problem

    I can’t upgrade to squeezebox either, my MAC address is 00:04:20:2d:cb:bd
    I’m also in Australia if that means anything.
    Any help would be great as I never really used this radio but I have a sudden interest to get it going. Thanks

    Hi Michael,

    It's a bit concerning that this poor little server has the power to make all new UE smart radios "useless" (as most people use them as squeezeboxes)
    I kept that unopened UE Radio as a precious gift, and know I find out that it could be a worthless brick of some update server dies

    Maybe after fixing this (which I hope comes quick ) would it be worth the extra time to start publishing some info about what theese services do & where they are so that, even in the case someone completely removes the plug on your side, these radios continue to work ?

    It's probably just a matter of a specific domain name to locally intercept & a file to serve to the box ; sharing that info (which anyone can probably find by sniffing data out of the ethernet from the box) would make it possible for these boxes to survive whatever may happen in the future..

    Just a suggestion from a 5 Radios + 2 SB Boom user

    Only the migration from UE to SB in the US is broken at this moment. The
    main service should be fully functioning.

    I'll do my very best to not let this happen. And even if the service was
    to go away, there's always a way to change firmware. It's a bit more
    involved, but people used to do it when the official migration path
    wasn't in place yet.

    I'm not sure this would be time well spent. Because we don't know the
    situation when the servers are shut down. Will firmware images still be
    accessible? Will there even still be an interest in doing this?

    Exactly. A UE SmartRadio would call config.logitechmusic.com to get
    information about what backend to connect to, and what firmware to
    install. If that service was to go away, you could set up your own web
    server responding to this request and serving SB firmware. This would
    trigger the firmware change on the Radio and make it a Squeezebox.

    My hope is that if the day was to come, Logitech would be kind enough to
    leave that service in place, just moving every device to SB as they
    connect. Running such a service does cost "nothing", as it could be a
    simple .json file being served up from S3 or other cheap space.

    is there a way for me, in the meantime, to "upgrade" my UE smart to Squeezebox "by hand" ?

    Maybe by sshing to it ? then what ?

    (thanks again)

    I've seen old messages about SCP'ing stuff into the device after enabling ssh

    that would be fine - but it's impossible for me to activate that freaking "developer" menu the procedure describe in the forums simply does not work
