Hi everybody! New user here
I just got my box with two GTM nodes but, as many has reported, they came bricked with an incomplete firmware update. Reading through these forums i managed to get one working! But the other one is not.
I saw on one of the posts about diving through the workings of the node using a serial terminal and command line to fix very specific issues.
I realize i don’t know even what i don’t know, in order to start finding some answers! Is there any kind soul here that could point me, and other newbie users to come, into the ways of fixing your own nodes?
I encourage you to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
One of our agents will offer you a possible solution.
a little disclaimer, the GoTenna support team is amazing, they replaced my frozen node for a brand new one! Thank you very much! : D
This is not related directly to the purpose of the initial post but i just wanted to avoid having the thread dead.
I’ve seen a common hack of some sorts is to plug a node with a solar panel ti keep it in relay mode indefinitelly; i just thought of a convenient variation for it which i’d like to try, and it is to plug it with one of those electric outlets with a timer on it, set to charge in an specific hour of the day and for a set ammount of time, say, one hour.
It won’t solve the problem of availability on a power shortage but, it is a really cheap way to have a persistent node in relay mode!
Thank you for your kind review, we at goTenna always happy to help.
