Updating your old beroNet Gateway to the latest beroNet OS

If you want to update the firmware on your beroNet Gateway to the latest version available, you can follow this guide to ensure that everything works properly.

With every Firmware Update, new configuration possibilities are added and bugs that lead to unexpected behaviour are fixed, so we suggest to always use the latest firmware.

We suggest going through the following upgrade path from old to current in order to prevent any potential errors: Older Firmware 2.3sp3 → 3.0.19 → 16.17 → 20.05.04 → latest firmware version
If anything should fail, you can do a Hardware Factory Reset, update to the last installed Firmware and try again. If you have reached the latest firmware, you can reconfigure your device or import the backup configuration.

Important Information for support on old firmware

In case that the firmware on your device is outdated and maybe even out of warranty, we sadly cannot provide free support if something does not work properly.

You can schedule an On-Demand-Support or a Premium Support Ticket with a beroNet technician in case you have problems with any of our devices.

A Hardware Factory Reset, updating and then reconfiguring can solve issues regarding updates in most cases. More Information down below!

Download Firmware

All different releases of the beroNet OS Firmware and stable releases for gateways can be found and downloaded here:

If you want to know what changed in between the versions,
consider checking out the changelogs, where bugfixes and additions are listed:

 


Update from 2.XX to 2.3sp3

If you are on a 2.XX firmware and you want to upgrade, please update first to the stable 2.3sp3 firmware.

Update from 2.3sp3 to 3.0.19

Do not install the 3.0.XX Firmware from the Recovery Mode / Hardware Factory Reset when you have a 2.X Version installed! Use the Firmware Update Functionality instead.

If you are on a 2.3sp3 firmware and you want to upgrade, please update first to the stable 3.0.19 firmware. This process needs a bit more attention than usual.

  1. Create a Backup of your Configuration (Management → Backup and Restore)

  2. Reboot the Device (Management → Reboot/Reset)

  3. Update to 3.0.19 Firmware (Management → Firmware Update)

  4. Then perform a Factory Reset (Management → Reboot/Reset)

The gateway may not be in a fully functioning state until the factory reset has been performed.

Then you can either restore your configuration or continue on the upgrade path.

Update from 3.XX to 16.17

Even though 3CX suggests the use of 3.0.19 it is completely safe to upgrade to a more current firmware. Current beroNet OS firmware works with all 3CX version if configured correctly!
