MR1100 AUS Firmware problem/update

Current Telstra FW 12.06.08.00 has serious problems with battery charge.
Current Intl FW is 12.06.11.00

FAQ says:

  • Updated AutoAPN database to 01.30
  • Reverted a change that could potentially cause the device loses data connection when temperary out of coverage
  • Addressed the issue that Heated Battery Alert is displayed prematurely
  • Addressed the connection issue when ethernet offloading to Orbi
  • Disabled WiFi and Ethernet port standby timers when the device is tethered or charged

When will these changes appear for the AUS Telstra version ? 
Or, should I give up waiting & try the forced update procedure to the generic one ?

Hi,

Same problem here, currently on Telstra FW ver. 12.06.08.00,

my router keeps disconnecting due to  short network losses

(poor coverage in my area... anyway, not the problem here)

Problem is it won't reconnect until I switch data off and on in the app... pretty annoying !

 

Last FW  ver. 12.06.11.00 seems to solve also this problem ,nice! 

But why do we, Telstra users have to wait months until new firmwares comes out?!

 

I'm also keen on testing FDT.exe method to force firmware install,

but I read about bootloops and other bugs and wouldn't like to brick the thing...

@rmx I did it yesterday on my AUS Telstra MR1100 and flashed the latest 100NAS FW. It works with no issue at all and even keeps previous settings and specific bands combination I had in place. Just don't try to flash the EUS FW. I confirm no loss of connectivity anymore 🙂
