rovio MAC address - resetting SetMac.cgi API correction

tobyb's picture
Forums: 

A correction to the Rovio API 1.3.

The API documentation says:

http://<IP address>/SetMac.cgi?MAC=

The correct command is:

http://<IP address>/SetMac.cgi?mac=AA:BB:CC:DD:EE:FF

... for your MAC and IP address. The former will set you MAC address randomly to some function of the supplied MAC like 00:00:00:00:80:AF

I know resetting the MAC is not a good idea generally but if you have to .. then this how.

Regards, T.

 

 

 

rovio will not connect after firmware v.5.03 update

I am using XP and had downloaded and installed Rivio Siftware Installer v.2.3 from the wowee.com/en/support/rovio page.

Before I saw a page to run my Rovio, it told me to install the firmware.  From the same page I downloaded and installed the firmware.  But since then it will not connect to my Rovio and the kittle on/off light does not lite up.

Is there a way un do the installs and start over.  My network is fine.  All so the lights around Rovio light up fine.

Any suggestions?

Avoiding low battery auto dock routine?

Has somebody already found out how to avoid the auto dock routine getting initialized on low battery state?

One reason why I want to stop the Rovio from starting to automatically drive back to the charging dock is that I installed some other hardware on top of the unharmed Rovio that blocks the camera arm from moving upwards.

I think there are two options to stop the Rovio from driving "back home":

1. Direct firmware hack (changing some values with a hex editor).

2. Modifying (open) source code and compiling the firmware with the ARM Developer Suite 1.2.
