downloaded roon 2 on my tablet but nucleus still only has 1.8 and it is stated as latest version. tablet with roon 2 will not communicate with nucleus. how to update nucleus? or if not able to update why are pushing the controller update.
Nucleus updated to 2.0 a couple of days ago and all was working fine until this afternoon I found it had shifted back to 1.8 - don’t know why. Now I can’t access it from updated remotes. Have tried reinstalling as per Help Center: RoonOS Core 2.0 (Nucleus / ROCK) but still stuck with Roon 1.8 Legacy.
I downloaded Roon Remote (Legacy) 4+## Control for legacy Roon 1.8, connected to nucleus, nucleus server can update to 2.0 again.
Proceed as follows:
1.downloaded Roon Remote (Legacy) 1.8.
2.connected to nucleus, the connection screen appears, like this:
3.click Connect button, then nucleus server update to 2.0 automatically.
4.Roon Remote (Legacy) 1.8 will not be able to connect nucleus server 2.0.
5.open Roon Remote 2.0, it will be able to connect nucleus server 2.0.
6.remeber, don’t click menu–>setting–>about, nucleus server will update to 1.8 automatically again!
Hi, Lee, could you please post a more detailed (step by step) procedure? I downloaded the Roon Remote Legacy on my Ipad and connected to my Nucleus core through Settings/Setup and then click “find” button in Find Roon OS. Clicked Nucleus ip address to get the Roon web interface. I clicked “Reinstall” button next to Operation System. However, it was still version 1.8 after updating and reinstalling. I am bot sure if I missed anything. I appreciate you help.
Thanks a lot Lee for the updated post. I did exactly the steps you l listed. However, once I clicked “connect” button next to my Nucleus core, my nucleus server didn’t update to 2.0. Instead, the Roon Remote (Legacy) connected to nucleus automatically. Some how the procedure doesn’t work for me. Not sure why that is.
I have read these posts and note the understandable frustration of the various users. PLEASE can a simple solution be found so that the Roon App can be used to update the Nucleus core as in previous iterations? For those of us with impaired eyesight every screen activated adjustment is a needlessly painful struggle.
For others in this situation, you can manually resolve this issue by following the migration procedure listed in our below article, or place your Roon Core online and we can try to send the update request (ROCK/Nucleus only).
RoonOS Core 2.0 (Nucleus / ROCK)
The names below in red are case-sensitive, capitalization matters
Go to the /Data/ folder on your RoonOS Core (instructions) and create a new folder called branches
Download the following file: roon_2-0 (It should be named roon_2-0 and saved with no file extension)
Copy the file into the branches folder previously created
Rename the file to roon (instructions on how to rename files: Windows / MacOS)
