Upgrade a mangOH Red with the Latest Firmware

This page provides instructions to upgrade your mangOH Red locally with the latest Octave firmware. Alternatively you can upgrade your device over the air if your device has been set up to communicate with Octave.


  1. (Windows only) If you are a Windows user, you must install the driver on your computer the first time by running: WP7702 driver for Windows.

  2. Connect your laptop to the mangOH red via the USB port.

  3. Open a terminal or a Windows command tool. Test the connection issuing ping command (press Ctrl-C to interrupt):

> ping
PING ( 56(84) bytes of data.
64 bytes from icmp_seq=1 ttl=64 time=2.22 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=2 ttl=64 time=2.16 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=3 ttl=64 time=1.19 ms
64 bytes from icmp_seq=4 ttl=64 time=2.24 ms

4 packets transmitted, 4 received, 0% packet loss, time 3002ms
rtt min/avg/max/mdev = 1.191/1.956/2.249/0.444 ms

You will now be able to ssh and copy files into the mangOH Red.

Download the latest Octave firmware

Download the latest stable release: 2.1.4 for mangOH red.

Install the firmware to your mangOH red

  1. Copy the firmware to the mangOH:
>scp mangOH-2.1.4.wp77xx.spk [email protected]:/tmp/mangOH-2.1.4.wp77xx.spk
  1. ssh in the mangOH, and install the package:
>ssh [email protected]
 #fwupdate download /tmp/mangOH-2.1.4.wp77xx.spk

The mangOH will reboot after installing the new firmware.

  1. We recommend removing the update package from /tmp to clean up the device's flash memory:

 #rm /tmp/mangOH-2.1.4.wp77xx.spk
