Skylark 5.7 for Dreamcatcher 3 (Ku-band) is up on archive
- Please update from 5.5/5.6 in the normal manner: overwrite the 5.5/5.6 sdcard with the 5.7 image, without trying to repartition//reformat the sdcard first.
- This is primarily a bugfix release - it (hopefully) fixes the regular lockups seen in the 5.6 release.
- If after burning this image you can’t access the AP or STA does not show up on your network, you may have to do a factor reset (see below).
Dreamcatcher v3.05 is in stock and ready to ship.
Dreamcatcher 3.05 has a PB1 function push button for triggering common recovery actions. It is located right next to the Power button (the one closer to SD2 is power). PB1 works with LED1 (FUNC) (located at the corner of the board next to SD2 slot). This is how to use it:
PB1 can trigger three functions:
Function 1: “Switch to AP mode (Reboot)” - You start with LED1(FUNC) switched off. Press PB1 once. LED1 will light up and then blink in a long-on->short-off->long-on repeating pattern (the single short off indicating function 1) and wait for approximate 7 seconds. DC3.05 will automatically reboot and switch to AP mode.
Function 2: “Configuration Reset (Reboot)” - You start with LED1(FUNC) switched off. Press PB1 twice (wait a second or so between presses). LED1 will light up and then blink in a long-on -> short-off -> short-on -> short-off -> long-on repeating pattern. (the two short-offs representing function 2). As before, wait for about 7 seconds (while the LED1 keeps blinking). DC3.05 will automatically reboot with configuration reset to default (this implies it will be in AP mode as thats the mode in default configuration).
Function 3: “Factory Reset (Reboot)” - You start with LED1(FUNC) switched off. Press PB1 three times (waiting about a second or so - 1-missisippi - between presses). LED1 with light up and then blink in s long-on -> short-off -> short-on -> short-off -> short-on -> short-off -> long-on repeating pattern (the three short-offs representing function 3). As usual, just wait for ~7 seconds (while the LED1 keeps blinking). DC 3.05 will automatically reboot with both configuration reset to default, and alll storage/downloaded files cleared, sdcard reformatted. Remember, this means it will reboot into AP mode.
At any time, if you have pressed PB1 and the LED1 is blinking a 1, 2, or 3 pattern, but you want to cancel out of it, press PB1 within the ~7 seconds as many times as needed so that LED1 switches off.
For example, if you pressed PB1 twice for function 2, and LED1 is now blinking a “2” pattern, Just press PB1 twice (waiting a second between presses). First press will take it to Function “3”, and then the second will will cause it to cycle back to “Function 0”, i.e, no action.
The three PB1 functions are exactly the same as the three corresponding ones on the DC 3.03 LCD menu.
Please post bug reports, etc in this thread.
Apologies to everyone for the messed up 5.6 release. Hopefully 5.7 is back to the same level of stability as 5.5.
