since last sunday I have major issues with my Homey and specially with my Zigbee network. On sunday my Homey did a last update from rc43 tot rc44, monday to rc46 and thuesday to rc47. Since then my Zigbee engine failed to startup again.
What I have tried so far:
Did a Homey reset with restoring a backup from Saturday (unfortunatly Homey does an automatic update to the newest version while restoring… So, that’s is a failure in my opinion because I can’t create a new point of truth where i can disable automatic updates…
Did several PTP with also 8+ hours of waiting for creating a new Zigbee mesh.
I prefer not to do a Zigbee reset with al my devices, but that’s was the last stap… Unpossible to do… (see screenshots).
As you can see my Homey does recognize my devices…
It seems I have also been one of the selected few to get this Zigbee fail. Yeayh!
Pardon me if I’m being slow, but Im a bit confused about what this prosedure you describe actually does.
Are we talking about a reinstalation of the software or are we talking about restoring a backup you have access to? (I don’t have any backups)
And the 5. Keep your data.
So nothing is lost, flows all there after this?
Quick update from me on this.
It worked! Zigbee up again.
Had to try a couple of times.
First time the search for updates lasted a blink of an eye and I never got the option of choosing “Download Full update”. I think it just said I had the latest update and presented me with a next button. So It actually just ended up doing a restart in a way, cos that didnt help.
I tried again, and this time I held the ALT button down from the page before, the connecting to the WIFI. THEN i got the option to choose “download full update” and a progress bar n all.
Install took a while, but at least its up n running.
@BSA@Pieter_Verkroost have both of you also mentioned it to Athom? That you had the issue, but more important that you followed that procedure and that the issue has been solved. It’s important for them to know the scale of the issue. Before V5 becomes official:
Athom would like to know how big the issue is, so please also send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Also had this problem. Followed the above instructions which resolved the issue.
One note though, when holding ALT down, don’t release until you have clicked “full install” otherwise you will miss the opportunity. At least that was the case for me, which made me have to repeat the recovery process one more time after I figured out when to hold the ALT-key down. Fourth attempt did the trick.
Lots of users seem to have Zigbee problems since RC43, only fix since then:
[Flow] Fixes an issue where Tags would not appear in a shared Flow
I don’t understand Athom, it keeps ignoring major problems, yes it is a experimental versions, but still it is a major function of Homey.
I have issues with devices just not responding sometimes, it is already an issue for almost 5 years but it is much more prevelend since RC43.
Did a full Zigbee reset(hours of work), did not solve anything, so after almost 5 year i am going to move to Home Assistant, the Conbee zigbee stick seems to be much more stable.
If Athom did not succeeded to make Zigbee stable in 5 years it is probably never going to happen.
