CyberQ Wifi BBQ Temperature Control Firmware Updates

Firmware Updates

Firmware updates are available for download from our website at no charge. Because updates replace pre-existing data and settings, you should make note of your Wi-Fi, email and other settings prior to installing the update. NOTE THAT ONLY UNITS WITH SERIES 2.4X HARDWARE CAN BE UPDATED to v2.0 or higher!! The hardware series is shown on the Wi-Fi Setup Web Page; it is the second number shown on the Firmware version line.

PC Users Firmware Update in Hot-Spot Mode

Here are the Firmware update steps:

  1. Reset the CyberQ Wi-Fi to Factory defaults by holding down all four arrow keys until the 
display shows “RESETTING EEPROM”. 

  2. Connect to the control via hot-spot mode from your PC. (If you want to use ad hoc mode to 
update from v1.7 or earlier, you will need a Windows 7 PC or a Macintosh.) 

  3. Download the updater app from the support section of www.bbqguru.com. Right-click on the 
zipped folder and select Extract All. This will create an uncompressed working folder. Inside the folder is an instructions file; follow the steps carefully. When you are asked to provide an IP address, use 192.168.101.10. If you are successful, the unit will reboot ad display the new firmware number on the openin screen. 


PC Users Firmware Update in Infrastructure Mode (Advanced)

Here are the Firmware update steps:

  1. Connect to the CyberQ from your PC. 

  2. Download the updater app from the support section of www.bbqguru.com. Right-click on the 
zipped folder and select Extract All. This will create an uncompressed working folder. Inside the folder is an instructions file; follow the steps carefully. When you are asked to provide an IP address, use 192.168.101.10. If you are successful, the unit will reboot ad display the new firmware number on the openin screen. Go to a command prompt to invoke the TFTP commands: To get to a command prompt on a Windows XP computer go to Start > Programs > Accessories > Command Prompt. On Windows Vista or 7 go to the Start menu and search on command prompt. 


MAC OS X Users

Mac OSX has a command line TFTP Client; it is called Terminal and is found in the
Utilities folder. Download the Mac updater file from the support section of www.bbqguru.com. Inside the uncompressed folder are two files, tcimage.bin and tcboot.bin. Move these files into the root level of your Mac’s Home folder (open a Finder window and choose Home under the Go menu).

Now, go to Applications>Utilities and double-click on Terminal. Enter the following commands:

Home folder name> tftp 192.168.101.10 (or your CyberQ infrastructure IP address)

tftp> binary

tftp> timeout 60


tftp> put tcimage.bin

tftp> put tcboot.bin

tftp> quit  

Your CyberQ should reboot and display the new firmware number on the opening screen.
