(Update because there is another) PATCH RELEASE: Bug Fixes for v49.1

Hey folks,

Third time's a charm - I think this second patch for v49.1 should be good to go - we're shipping it right now so keep your eyes open. It should carry MP3 support, normal wifi functionality, and full graphics support.

Only 64-bit is 

 

Specifics (what few there are) are in our blog post.

    Sadly, I must report that this bug-fix release has rendered my wifi useless! All was fine on the previous v49.1 build, and after this bugfix was OTA'd to me, the wifi no longer works on my machine.

    It works on boot just fine, but once the login screen has been up for a couple of seconds, the wifi becomes completely disabled. If you're fast enough you can click on the wifi icon and see all the expected access points, etc, but it shortly disables itself. I tried the hardware key on this particular laptop and it only updates the status from off to....off.

    This is a Lenovo Thinkpad SL410, using a Realtek internal wifi 802.11/n/g device.

    With my limited linux knowledge, I looked around dmesg, etc. in the terminal and I think theres something amiss with the CRDA frequency registration. It tries to register as "00" instead of US , but I dont see a way to re-register the device properly.

    I'll post any logs that you might want, just let me know!

    Hey guys - we're gonna dive into this today and figure it out ASAP.

    Both of you - are you on 64-bit or 32-bit?

    Wei - if you can follow Jason's lead and send some info about the wifi in your Thinkpad that would be very helpful.

    To anyone else who comments about this here - please include the same info to help us speed up the fix process.

    Hi Forrest,
    Glad to help. I am on 64-bit Lenovo Thinkpad S230u. Wifi module is Intel(R) Centrino(R) Wireless-N 2230.
    Wifi works fine before the update. Just like Jason said, it works during the login screen for about 5-10 second then wifi is disabled. Press hotkey and got "wifi is off" notification.
    My OS is installed on a separated hard drive from Windows, but they share the same BIOS.

    Same issue with wifi on dell vostro 3450 64 bit. After logging I have internet for a short period (30 seconds or so). If try to turn the wifi on via my keyboard the OS freezes and I'm force to do a hard reboot. Worked fine before the update. Cloud ready is the only OS on this device. Happy to help in anyway I can. Thanks

    Can you confirm this is out for auto update? When I try to force update in Settings it says 48.1.26 64 bit is the latest version.

    William -

    I got my update last night, so I think it's working fine.

    Are you on a USB or fully installed?

    William Mansfield

    It's a full install. I just installed it about a week ago.

    Are you on a home network or a school/work one?

    School network. I logged into our content filter as myself, so nothing on that side should be blocked. Are there any out of the ordinary ports in use that our firewall may be blocking?

    Forrest Smith

    well, 443 for SSL - maybe you decrypt/block all SSL?

    The packages also need to be downloaded from Amazon S3 -a lot of schools block that.
    Unless you're planning to roll out widely in the school, I'd recommend just taking it home for a night to update. Or going to a public starbucks for an hour or something.

    I shut down and restarted the PC and it started downloading the update this time around. I guess the reboot + third click was the key. It shows 49.1.54 now. :)

    As I commented on in the blog, only until I scrolled to the end of the comments did I realize what platform version number I needed to be looking for in order to know I'm completely up-to-date on builds.

    Might be helpful to include the exact version numbers in titles.

    Not sure why, but I am still unable to get the v49.1 OTA. Running a DELL Latitude E6410 with hard disk install. Tried to force update and it showed applying updates one time. Got all the way to 100% and then it showed it was finished. Nothing happened so I shut down and restarted. No change. Still on v47.1. Am I missing something here?

    We are a school and have paid license but we are still on version 46.1.

    Tried to force update and it showed:
    Versie 46.0.2490.92
    Platform 46.1.26 (Developer Build - neverware) developer-build dataart
    Het apparaat is bijgewerkt.

    What is wrong ?

    Jeff,

    You need to perform a clean install, 46.1 contains a bug which makes it impossible to update. There's no workaround for it. Keeping a eye on the blog from time to time doesn't hurt.

    The WLAN issue with v48 seems to be fixed now, did not have time to report before, but now it seems to be working well with v49.1.53.
    - Intel WLAN, Network was disconnected very often without reason in V48 64bit.

    I'm really confused. Some of the replies above mention a work around to this problem, but I don't see the work around. Is it the 49 version update? I'm having a very similar problem, and I'm on version 50.1

    I'm getting the following error: Failed to connect to network {SSID}. Network out of range.

    The Wi-Fi access point is in the same room and located about 5 feet from the computer.

    Up until about 2 or 3 weeks ago the computer was running Cloud Ready without any problem. I had set it up and given it to some Afghan refugees so they could get onto the internet

    I've download and tried both the 32 and 64 bit versions of 50.1.99 with the same result

    Hi jrdaparker -

    You should check if your Inspiron has a physical wifi toggle - you may need to fool around with toggling that off and on (and potentially subsequently toggling the wifi off and on by clicking the wifi symbol in the wifi menu).

    Another thing to try is to make an Ubuntu USB installer and boot into Ubuntu - once there, turn wifi on and ensure it is working, and then shut down ( with it still on) and check if CloudReady is working.
