I’m trying to help out a friend that bought a setup with raspberryPi and the Spark to build a brew system. After some reading, software updates and trail/error we got the system to a state where we could turn ports on/off and read temperatures. We used an USB cable between the raspberryPi and the spark.
Then I brought the system home (power was removed) to try to figure out how to actually have it do something as a consequence of sensor input and time.
When I got home it connected it to my network, found the web based GUI, I was going to resume the work, but now it claims:
Service incompatible with firmware
I tried power cycle and let it rest for 30 minuttes, but nothing fixed it. So i tried to connect to the Spark via WiFi, no luck, then i power cycled again and let it sit for a while.
Since nothing seemed to do the trick i thought that mayby something had gone wrong in the system due to the power cycle, so i tried updating the bootloader of the spark ( brewblox-ctl bootloader ). That didn’t cause any issues, but it didn’t solve the problem. So then i the the actual update again ( brewblox-ctl update ), which seemed to run smoothly but it still didn’t fix the problem. No i have had it powered on over the night and it is still the same so now i’m running low on idears.
I’ve attached the log so that you can see if the updates have caused a mismatch of software versions or the system is having issues in communication.
Currently the system indicates that it is connected with USB and that the Spark has a valid IP adress. And right now i think i asked it to use the WiFi for communication ( brewblox-ctl wifi ).
Having had it to work I belive that the hardware is actually alright, I “just” need to figure out why the communication between the raspberryPi and the Spark indicates software mismatch, when this is not the case. Because it did infacet work just two days ago.
Any advice is much appriciated.
