Video: Recover Bricked Vera plus

yea well sometime the 6 button thing doesnt work , i have never had sucess with that reset button after 1 go sometime take 3 days of trying before it actually works

Reseting by SSH doesn’t help.

I would like to check my VeraPlus controller on another software version. I wonder is this operation could fixeded problem with correctly loading page ?

Alright I’ve been watching this wondering if support would intervene. Basically what is happening to you is that you have recovered your firmware, you get a webpage so your web server is working (lightppd) but your luup engine is crashed. SSH into your unit and look at what happens when you type:

Start_cmh.sh

It should return you with something. Please post what it says. Also please post the output of ps aux

Please tell me what was broken ? Will I have to do this every time I reboot the controller ?

After rebot controller…

My joy was premature :(. After restarting everything is old and it’s necessary to connect by SSH and start Start_cmh.sh and Start_LuaUPnP.sh.
Still no controller detected on home.getvera.com.
Any suggestions…

Sorry it’s very hard for me to understand what you are saying.
So the website started and then?

Did it stay up or did it crash?
I can’t help much on the home.getvera.com. I think it relies on upnp on your network and there can be any reason for this not to work. I wouldn’t worry about it for now. What matters is that you get to the vera menu locally.

Please, forgive me my english. I konow it is very bad…

Yes, the website loading correctly and menu works correctly too.
But to correctly load website after restart of the controller I need again run Start_cmh.sh and Start_LuaUPnP.sh services via SSH.

ok then the luup engine is running. Why it doesn’t load up at reboot I don’t know but there seems to be nothing wrong with your firmware. Check your internet connection maybe…

did you by any change upgrade to 7.30?

terminal/ should look like this is it doesnt say the serieal numner then something is not working right

root@MiOS_SerialNumber:~#

try pressing all the buttons on the front of the unit it may still be in test mode after the reset

Hello,

No, I only recovery firmware from .bin file according the instructions send by Vera Technical support.

When I open site of the controller after runing service Start_cmh and Start_LuaUPnP I see warrings:


@rafale77 Let them disagree with you. I think in properly working firmware all services should be loading automatycly.

dont do the firmware update yet … associate it with your account first

Ok thanks, When I get at home I try your suggest of the pressing all buttons on my unit.

Hi Maciej,

I have sent you an email, I may be able to help you with your Vera, I’ll be waiting for your reply,

Regards,
