Setup Homey classic after reset

I have an old homey that is not used for two years, the firmware is probaly v1.5.13 (status is portal).
It is reset, but the setup dont work.

Whit my ipad i can conect to the homeySetup-xxx ssid, but after that the mesage “oeps, er was een probleem met het laden van de instalatie”.
Probaly because the ipad had no internet when connected to homey-setup?

With my phone I can’t find the homey when on that wifi network. When mobile-internet is disabled, it find the homey. When enabled again I can go to
But there the mesage occur that I should download the app, but that is installed. When i go back to the app the begin screen is there (add a new homey).

I already tryd it with firefox.

Does anybody have an idea to do the initional setup for a homey-clasic with old firmware?

And also pressed the Alt key to continue in the browser?

You should not switch to the app before it is connected and downloading firmware updates.

-go to, if that will not resolve, try another pc or tablet with keyboard.
-chose language
-if the message come that you should download the app press or so (tables is other key) and keep it pressed. A small text “continue in browser” come, press that.
-a message that the setup will be download should occur.
-manually connect to the normal wifi network (with working internet), then reload the browser, the message that the setup will be download should now start.
-when the download is ready, a popup occur that you should connect again to the homeySetup-xx ssid.
-after that follow the screen. In some step you should manually connect to the normal ssid.
