Stuck


#1

So I’ve decided to roast today while preheating I tried to update my firmware.
and the bullet stopped preheating and started running the fan, cooling down the roaster.
It’s been going on since I’ve updated the firmware.

Help :frowning:


#2

update: I tried with newer 2.5.0 beta, now everything is black and just the fan is running


#3

Fixed from restarting without an USB cable (manual reboot)

read other threads about this it was quite common


#4

This sounds very similar to this one:
Firmwar(e) Updated Successful however no lights…

Basically they had to reload the firmware but that can’t happen because the roaster isn’t running & it’s not communicating with the external computer. There’s a procedure to force the roaster to open the USB port and load firmware again which was posted by @jacob. I didn’t find that post, but this is a link to a .pdf of the procedure which @jacob was describing.
Boot Loader Instructions

Btw, after loading firmware (successfully), you have to disconnect and reconnect the power 2 times. Not sure if you’ll need to re-calibrate the exhaust fan again… ??

Many Thanks Bruce … yes after a few tensed minutes, my aillio bullet is now fully functional again after manual boot loader steps … disconnect and reconnect power two times needs to be highlighted in bold as I prematurely sent an email telling Aillio team it did not work … but after second attempt it works … another thing i did slightly different to the instruction was i downloaded the stable version instead of the suggested beta version as nothing happens after selecting the beta version … no password required

I havent done a roast yet but the front panel lights up … no further news from me means good news

Many thanks to all
