SmartBMS updated this morning on my Android phone. On opening the App it will connect to the BMS but will provide no information (other than its serial number and firmware version). The App demands to install a "software" update (which I guess should be "firmware" update) which loads extremely slowly and fails every time at just under 60%.
The Daly BMS is now running entirely blind as I cannot see any parameters in the Bluetooth App.
BE WARNED.

Not so far.

I've written to Daly and to the outfit I bought the BMS from.

I'm not really expecting any response because:
1) Daly are "famous" for ignoring their customers.
2) Given the level of Coronavirus infection in China at the moment, I doubt there is anyone in the office who can do serious work.

I don't need my battery bank for the next week or two. If nothing has been sorted by then, I guess I'll order a different BMS and join the long line of people who have chucked their Daly BMS into the bin.

Same problem here. Daly BMS 4S 100A. Update to 60% and fail. That was yesterday.
Today it even doesn't accept 123456 code to start update and "says" "Failed to query firmware informationerror".

same problem here too.
I tried to connect with PC but also could not read any value of the BMS. I had another battery pack I did not attempt the upgrade on and I could communicate with that pack using PC.

I even tried using the PC program (PCMaster.exe) and it could not communicate with the BMS. Lucky for me, I had another battery pack which I did not attempt the upgrade on and I was able to connect to this pack using the PCMaster.exe. I found one of my android phones that had the old bluetooth app, I was not able to communicate with the pack I tried the update on but was able to read values of the other BMS which I did not upgrade.

Now I am very concerned if this pack that was attempted to be updated can even protect my cells.

Same stuff here.

Luckely I had another phone switched off and sleeping for a few weeks. Ik started it without internet connection, so it couldn't update the app. This way I could open Daly app like before...


On the other phone : Can anyone tell me what the "Secure firmware code " should be ? It is not the BT code for sure...

Same problem for me. BMS doesn't accept 123456 as firmware code so I can't upgrade.
Hope the BSM will work with the oldest firmware / set-up till they will solve.
Basically I didn't upgrade at all... Simply smartbms app is unusable!

Do not reboot or disconnect BMS or it will not boot up again after this failed upgrade.
