Hi!

 

I see the .bin file is named as M9Plus_2.0_en_1.6.0 Build 20220720 Rel. 62024_US_JP_EU_TW_CA_up. 

 

Looks like it is only for V2.0 and upwards. I have a mix of V1 and V2 on the same mesh. Does this file upgrade V1 decos too?

  @internet4me " All working as expected."

That must be a relief. What are you supposed to do if it doesn't work and (as the readme says) you can't go back to 1.5.6?

Thank you very much for the confirmation.

The beta firmware is  NOT suitable for V1/1.1/1.2. Sorry about the previous information and the original post has been updated.

Hi, It could be downgraded back to 1.5.6 if needed via firmware recovery. since it is much more complicated than the usual firmware upgrade and we also want to get more feedback about the beta firmware preparing for the official release of 1.6.0, it is not recommended to update to downgrade back to 1.5.6 at the first time.

Hi, I will test on my side to see whether it would be the same.

So far, have you noticed any abnormal issues with the Wi-Fi performance?

Thank you very much.

Best regards.

Hi  @David-TP ,

 

On this post of more than 1 year ago: 2021-03-22 (reply #30)

https://community.tp-link.com/en/home/forum/topic/159927?page=3

TP-Link mentioned backup functionalities in version 1.7.x and now only 1.6.0 is released.

 

Any horizon on that version or adding backup in 1.6.1?
