Upgrade a mangOH Yellow with the Latest Firmware

This page provides instructions to upgrade your mangOH Yellow 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. If you are a Windows user, you must install the driver on your computer the first time by running: WP7702 driver for Windows. Mac and Linux users do not require a driver installation.


Note for Mac Users

For Mac, USB driver support for Octave edge devices is only supported up to MacOS 10.14. USB driver support in MacOS 10.15+ for Octave edge devices is currently unavailable. If you're using MacOS 10.15 or higher, you must use a Linux or Windows machine (e.g., via a virtual machine) to update your Octave edge device.

  1. Connect your laptop to the mangOH Yellow via the USB port.

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

> ping

You will receive responses from the mangOH Yellow; press Ctrl-C to interrupt:

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 Yellow.

> ssh [email protected]

It is strongly recommended to setup credentials for remote login.
  Please select one of the following options:
    1) Setup ssh keys and disable passwords-based authentication via ssh (the most secure)
    2) Setup password (better than nothing)
    3) Do nothing

On the first time, the module will ask to set up the credentials. Choose 3 (Do nothing) and Y (to be reminded next time) or n if you don't need to secure access to the mangOH.

Type exit to close the ssh session".
