  • Updating FR24 software RPi

    My apologies if this has been covered before (I'm sure it has) but trying to search through hundreds of pages has yet to yield an answer.

    My FR24 software is old (at work at present so unable to check exact version) and does not auto-update as I beleive the latest versions do.

    Simple question - what commands do I need to run to update to the latest version without re-installing from scratch ??

    Do I have to stop fr24 running first ??

    I'm a complete idiot with Linux, but able to follow instructions

    Stashed away in my help guide...

    http://forum.flightradar24.com/threa...-FAQs-and-Info

    Update fr24feed
    sudo apt-get update - refresh available app update list
    sudo apt-get install --only-upgrade fr24feed - manually check for update
    - Will search for a new version and advise if 0 bytes were to be installed (no change) or if a new update was to be.
    And yes you need to stop it first (commands there too)

      Thanks for that - I did look at that guide but didn't scroll down the page enough

        I did not realize there were update commands. I wiped my SD clean and installed a new version and now I am stuck at the log on page. I put in my credentials and hit the log on button and it never goes anywhere, Internet is working fine I can hit the other buttons or tabs. I am stuck please help.

          Huh?
          There is no login related to the software

          Or do you mean pi console

          More info needed.

            Getting these 2 screens and when I put in my current account log in creds after hitting the log on button it goes no where.

            One other thing I noticed was that on my account page on my radar name my IP on the account is showing with a .82 and now after reimaging the IP is now .78

            Hope this helps

              Rule #1. Don't use active receiver more than once.

              https://forum.flightradar24.com/foru...897#post213897

              Ctrl-alt-f2 like it says there, or use putty and
              Sudo fr24feed --signup
              Use the same as previous

                    I ran though the script and got all the info entered and I see the new radar name that is assigned, but it has not picked up my mac address or ip yet and it says online but no data

                      The stats server is separate from the feed server.
                      as long as original settings window in browser or fr24feed-ststus says its fine, its fine

                          Unless you have an antenna/wrong stick type issue. The rest wont kick in unless that tracked:0 becomes > 1
