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. (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 Yellow 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

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

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
--- ping statistics ---
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 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".

Download the Latest Octave firmware

Download the latest mangOH Yellow firmware with Octave: Platform independent .spk file.

Install the firmware to your mangOH Yellow

  1. Copy the firmware to the mangOH:
>scp yellow_wp77xx_0.5.0-octave.spk [email protected]:/tmp/yellow_wp77xx_0.5.0-octave.spk
  1. ssh into the mangOH and install the package:
>ssh [email protected]
[email protected]:~# fwupdate download /tmp/yellow_wp77xx_0.5.0-octave.spk

The mangOH will reboot after installing the new firmware. You can ssh into the mangOH again to verify that it is still alive and connected.

  1. We recommend removing the update package from /tmp to clean up the device's flash memory:
>ssh [email protected]
 #rm /tmp/yellow_wp77xx_0.5.0-octave.spk
