Title: Obihai 200 checksum error with OBi202-3-2-1-5757EX.fw
Post by: david123456789 on December 06, 2017, 06:55:41 am
I"m trying to update the firmware on my Obi200 to the latest OBi202-3-2-1-5757EX.fw to eliminate the Google Voice Backing Off error.  I keep getting a checksum error no matter what browser I use to download the file. On Windows 10 the file shows up as 13.5 MB (14,168,064 bytes).  That is a fairly large discrepancy.  My Obi200 is on 3.1.0 (Build: 5264).  Is there an intermediate firmware build I should update to before trying the latest?

My Windows 10 shows the same size. EX firmware includes OBi Extras code. Try deleting the FW and download again.

Thanks I've tried that multiple times with each download.

The download site says 3-2-1-5757 (10.4MB).  That is the size I am checking against.  I've downloaded the firmware all the way back to build 5285 and none of them work with this unit.

Is there any way to disable the checksum validation and just force the update?

The file size is 14,167,736.  The "size on disk" reported by Windows depends on properties of your hard disk such as the cluster size.  The 1Tbyte drive in my Windows 10 PC says 14,168,064.

The incorrect 10.7 Mbyte figure in the post by Obihai is probably the result of a careless and incomplete edit  by whoever updated that post.

No, there is no way to force the update past a checksum error.

It should not be necessary to update to an intermediate firmware version.

HOWEVER

You should not need to manually update the firmware as even for OBi20x devices out of warranty, Obihai has arranged a semi-automatic update to address the recent GV change.  Go to your Dashboard at obitalk.com and you should find a yellow triangle containing an exclamation mark.  Clicking on that should initiate the firmware update.

That doesn't work.  I've already tried that.  It just says update didn't work.  Probably due to the check sum error.

How is the checksum calculated?  Is it an MD5 hash or SHA512?

These are the results returned from hashcheck (https://github.com/gurnec/HashCheck) on the firmware file.

Thanks.  My hash MD5, SHA1, SHA256, and SHA512 values match up with yours.  Windows is displaying the values in uppercase, but other than that the values are identical.  So that means the issue is with the unit and not the file.

The checksums are in hex.  Case doesn't really matter.  Do you have some browser plugin or antivirus program that intercepts web traffic.  Maybe it's changing it somehow ?

I tried disabling the anti-virus and trying a clean Linux laptop.  Still getting a checksum error.  Looks like I need to buy another obihai.

I expect it won't make any difference but you have nothing to lose by trying a hardware reset.

It's worth a shot to try a different ethernet cable and power adapter too.
