Firmware upgrade

The firmware version of my new APC is 1.4.4. The Anova App (ver 3.2.8 on android) notify that a new firmarware version is available. When I try to update, it seems that the APC make the update and restart, but the App continue to run and after some minutes, ask if I want to stop or continue.
Any ideas ?

I had the same problem when I just recently set mine up.
I ignored the update, and it seems to work fine.
But I’m with you, if it says there’s an update, we should be able to install it.

Same, it just keeps on asking whether the system seems to be updating or not. The APC restarts and it connects to the app, but the app keeps insisting on the existence of a new firmware update that isn’t yet installed on the APC.
Just received my APC today, but the whole WIFI experience has been nothing short of a disaster, but I’ve managed to connect.

Same problem here using my iPhone and my precision cooker, it’s only the second time I’m using it. When I first got it a couple of weeks ago, it was able to upgrade to whatever was the latest back then, but this latest one just won’t take.

Exact same problem here. Anova app says there is a firmware update.
I start the update.
The Anova shows “07A” on its display, and a few seconds later the Anova restarts and shows the temperature, as when the Anova is first turned on.
The Anova app shows a spinning icon, that its updating, and it says it will take about 2 minutes.
After 30 minutes, I cancel out of the update.
The app shows that I still have a firmware update.
Don’t know if anything was updated.
Tried this 3 times and gave up.
Trying to see if the Community has any answers concerning firmware updates.
Why doesn’t the message about a firmware update being available disappear.
Did my Anova get updated with new firmware?
What is going on here?

I went through the same thing but instead of 30 mins, it was over an hour. I used it without wifi and pissed off cause I didnt buy it to use without wifi i bought it to use with wifi. Customer service was NO and I mean NO help.

I returned it and bought a Joule. Pleased as punch.

I’m having the same firmware update issue as listed in this thread. I have two questions. 1 - Does anyone have a later Firmware Version higher than 1.4.4? 2 - Does anyone from Anova read/respond to these postings?

I answer to your last question: no Anova does not come here. This is a forum run by community members, with no affiliation with Anova, aside being customers.

@Mase - I think I snagged one of the last APC’s before the new model came out.
Looking at my settings, I have these values:
Model Number: A3
Firmware Version 4.6.7

I’m an iPhone user, running the current iOS beta software.

I’m actually pretty shocked that people are actually talking about firmware updates to the APC’s. I remember that was actually the excuse as to why Anova wasn’t allowing things like WPS for wifi setup, as they didn’t want to make any modifications to the firmware in the devices. Obviously there’s been a policy change.

Also, on that note, I do have to say that I’m pretty shocked how well the Wifi setup worked on version 3.2.8 of the app. Only “bug” was that it actually stopped the APC following the connection.
Previously, I’ve seen you need to have your APC within 5 feet of the WAP to do the initial setup (as the Wifi radio in the APC is actually quite weak and the logic in the firmware seemed quite frail for retries, etc). My APC is in a different area of the house…walls between it and the WAP and it completed the setup. Very pleasantly surprised! :slight_smile:

(and, yes, I’ve been running these since the first wifi one came out…and was on the waiting list for that) :slight_smile:

Edit: They still have a bug that the APC / App won’t allow your bluetooth connection, once the Wifi connection is established. (disabled my wifi and cellular radios to see if BT was still available).

exact same issue here. this is proof that hardware is easier than software.
i guess there is nothing we can do until next update.
maybe wait couple months then come back to check firmware update, it will be ok that time.
