upgrading to 2.0

  • Hi,
    I wanted to start upgrading my nodes to 2.0.
    From my understanding, all combinations are valid, right?
    My gateway is still on 1.x and I just compiled and uploaded for one node 2.0
    I wanted to find out how hard it is and estimate the effort.

    Do I need a 2.0 gateway in order to have a 2.0 node working?
    I am getting some response which seems that the GW does not work with the node but then on the controller (OpenHab) I am receiving messages from the new node (even nothing to work with).

    Anyhow, here is what I am getting in serial debug:

    @parachutesj - I couldnt get my old gateway to work with 2.0 nodes and tekka wrote its recommended to upgrade all. In my case i started at the gateway and then repeaters and that did work. I still have some nodes from 1.4 and 1.6 that works with the 2.0gw and repeaters.

    @parachutesj Today I had to upgrade to MySensors 2.0 as well. As @sundberg84 you should use a MS 2.0 gateway. MS 2.0 sketched don't work with an older gateway, as I've experienced. And it seems to be logic to update the repeater nodes as well.

    So far I haven't update any of the nodes and seems to work fine. But I'll be upgrading them a.s.a.p.

    Hope this helps you.

    Thank you both. I have quite a few nodes out there and "ruining" the gateway would be not so great. However flashing it back with another PC might work, so will prepare that before there is no point of return 😉
    But good to know that a 2.0 GW seems to be working with 1.x nodes well.

    @parachutesj My strategy was using a second arduino uno as the new gateway. So that I could keep my original gateway in tact.

    At the moment everything still seems to work (incl the MS 1.5 nodes)

  • @TheoL & @sundberg84
    I updated my serial GW to 2.0 successfully. Just uploaded the code from the samle page and adjusted to my environment. All 1.x sensors seem to work after 24h.
    The issue from above is also solved, so 2.0 sketch works as well now.

    @parachutesj I'm running a 2.0 gateway a couple of weeks now. It's stable and all 1.5 nodes still work flawless. Of course no guaranty that the all 1.5 nodes will keep working for others as well, once they've updated the gateway to 2.0. So I bumped one of my 1.5 nodes to 2.0 tonight. Will continue to do so with the others.

    First the easy ones (like temp and humidity sensors) then the others. Also great possibility to refactor the older ones to my current insights 😉

    Already started some interesting projects with the new 2.0 features. Did I already mentioned that I love 2.0?
