I saw an email from Weber Germany announcing a new software / firmware update coming this week. Has anyone heard this as well?

I have not yet received an email from Weber Netherlands. Did they announced anything special? Bugfixes?

It was a screenshot on a German Facebook Forum. No specifics what it will fix.

Last one I saw from Weber was the one I already have installed. Nothing new since. It sure would be nice though if they would do modifications per our woes.

Apparently they want to address primarily WiFi communication and connection issues between App and WSF.

Boo!! Address the slowness to temp, and the crazy temp fluctuations.

No new updates have shown up of me yet either. Iphone app still at 0.9.6, controller firmware 4008 and software version 1.2(1394). I’m sure the pandemic has slowed down their ability to ensure that any updates are complete and thoroughly tested.

New to this grill (only received last week)... How do you check or get prompted that there is a new firmware update?

From Weber here - Firmware updates (note the software update will prompt you, but firmware shows no indication as mentioned in the below instructions). Update the app and software first.

Plug in your SmokeFire.

Push the SmokeFire power button ON.

Confirm that you have the latest version, and have updated, the Weber Connect app on your phone. The current version for iOS: 0.9.6 Android: 0.9.5

Confirm that you have the latest software version, located in the grill controller About screen: juneOS Lite 1.2 (1394)

Pair your SmokeFire to the Weber Connect app via Bluetooth. Updates will not occur if connected via WiFi.

Ensure that your smartphone is within Bluetooth range for approximately 15 minutes as the update takes place. We suggest leaving your smartphone on the side table, with the app open, for maximum range

After 15 minutes, shut down your grill by navigating to Grill Settings (on the control screen) and enter shutdown mode. Once shut down is complete, the grill will display that it’s safe to turn off your grill. At this time, flip the grill switch off. Once the grill has completely shut down, power SmokeFire back on again for the update to sync to the grill controller.

Once the grill is powered back on, wait one minute, and then navigate to the grill’s About screen.

Check that the Firmware Version is now 04008. It will take up to a minute for the controller version to be reflected.

It is crazy: Weber told me today that it will come on Monday May 18. Someone else I know got an email from Weber saying that it came out today, now you got even another information. Seems Weber does not really know what to communicate??!

Yeah, I was told in April would be early May. I’m good with waiting as long as the waiting is ensuring the promised features are there and has been fully tested.
