    Update on deCONZ new firmware for Conbee, Conbee 2, Raspbee, Raspbee 2

    All,

    Dresden Electronics has released new firmware for their devices. This firmware will need to be installed by hand.
    One of the advantages of this firmware is the possibility (for tinkerers) to add routes manually for devices.
    *EDIT* Before installing the new firmware, make sure to upgrade to deCONZ version 2.05.81 or higher!


    Guidance for installing the firmware is here.
    Links to the firmware can be found here

    When using a raspbee card, take note than you need to do extra updates regarding the WiringPi package.
    *snip*

    Following the procedures for the Conbee 2 on Windows following the guidelines worked smooth.

    Cannot update Raspbee 1 using command
    apt-get upgrade libc6. Terminal says libc6 is already newest version (2.24-11+deb9u4)

      I also upgraded to buster trying to solve the GLIBC_2.28 issue. So for those having problems with the update, an upgrade to buster might be needed as well..
      Revoke this, instead first upgrade to deCONZ >=2.05.81

        I upgraded all three of my Raspbee (v1) systems with no issues. I was already running buster on all of them. I upgraded deCONZ first (to 2.05.82, they are now up to 2.05.83), then manually installed the firmware. There have been a few reports with this firmware of lights dropping out (going unreachable) and coming back at a later time, but I have not seen this.

          This firmware on my ConBee2 seems to have fixed the issue of it locking up and not communicating with deConz after a few days.

            It also solved an issue on my Conbee 2 where it would function normally towards the plugin, but could not be detected by UPNP after a few days. So it seems it solves some of the long lasting issues... nice!
