When do you see the red blinking? If it happens right after you press the button, I think that means they’ve not been set up.

What happens after you play the sound during setup mode?

Great article, amazing work. 3 of my buttons blinked Red once and turned off however, I was able to set the SSID and see a screen that said : “Thank you for configuring your Device”. And vising the configure me SSID shows a web form where I can set it again.
Are these successfully setup? I am trying to see them connect to my dummy router, which is not connected to internet (monitoring with Kismet and TCP Dump) but do not see anything.
Thanks
D

I’m not really equipped or motivated to find a new vulnerability, unfortunately.

The 3-Firmware worked, the 6-Firmware also shows solid blue for 20s. Any progress on this?

Cheers. 🙂

I’ve not been able to reproduce it reliably, but sometimes sending a request with the header Content-Type: application/json seems to help. (easiest for me to accomplish this via curl).

It sounds like the dash button isn’t “hearing” the audio file. Are you able to hear anything when you play it? Should sound like a really terrible high-pitched screech.

I had the best luck playing it over some earbuds. The dash button never responded when playing it over my laptop’s speakers.

I run on FW 30017420_WS.
I can go through Step 1-5.
I don’t get feedback in Step5 when I visit the site?
Should there any info?  The site is running in time out without any notification.

Great job, great hack, thanks for the instructions! Maybe you can help me with my dash button. It’s firmware v 30017420_EU.When I play the audio file the button doesn’t change its behaviour. It still flashes blue until the button goes off again. Best regards, Mani

My browser media player doesn’t seem to work with it. I’ve had better luck downloading it and playing it with VLC. If you haven’t already, give that a go.

I can’t access the audio file. The player on the link has audio on zero seconds.
Thanks for any help.
