hello all,

Earlier this year i bought a brand new Tello and had a lot of fun with it flying it around, atleast for the first few days.
After a couple of days i did a firmware update using the latest version of the Tello app.
After the update was succesfull it asked to reconnect to Tello so i opent the WiFi settings and while the yellow led was blinking (like it always does while waiting for connection) this time there was no sign of any Tello SSID in the wifi list. because the Tello was just bought and i didn't find any fast solution, i didn't bother digging for awnsers, i just send it back and they gave me a new one flying perfectly for months. untill...

And i I dont know why, forgot all of the above and stupid as i was... i did the **** update again (stupid stupid stupid me) and encounterd the same exact issue with the Tello - i did the firmware update succesfull after this no more Tello WiFi SSID in wifi list on my phone.
So one moment all was fine--> update firmware --> no more Wifi no more flying around no more fun with Tello for me anymore.. this time i can't ju8st send it back for another one, its been months since i bought it so now im really digging the interweb for a solution.. other people encoumnterd the same issue, people gave advise ( the 5 solutions i tried below) but none fix my Tello and there seems no solid solution just the same stuff given as what to do.... Anyone knows anything i would be verry happy.... cant be a coincidence this happend straight after the update on 2 separate occasions on 2 different drones.. w t f is going on ??

what i already found on the internet i have already try it several times and it doens't fix or does anything to solve. solutians/fix did't work out for anyone that was encountering the same issue after update as me. If you know anything else the the 5 thing i tries again and again.. please.. :)
Hope you understand my explanation of the issue ... excuse my bad english..

Stuff i already try

1- reset by holding power button(when powered state) --- No result still no Tello SSID popping up after reboot

2- delete Tello app - reinstall Tello app - reboot phone

3- hold power when Tello is off untill green light turns off an steady/blinking red light appears the update - this actually made the Tello SSID appear and did the actual update again with succes - but when rebooting Tello, again no SSID Tello appear (also try to (hard) reset straight after this procedure, with no positive result)

4- installed older tello version 1.1.2. or something, from this older app-version did the update (pointless cause it is the same firmware downloaded from the server) why this would work for anyone i dont know, it did't work for me.

5-- checked on different phones- iphone checked on samsung galaxy S7- checked on tablet -- same crappy result -- o Tello in wifi settings of phone

thanks for your reply !!

yes, i tried it on a samsung galaxy tab and iphone 6, same result.
I have contacted Ryze, told about my problem and included a link to this thread.
their advice is to "hold down the power button to reset, airplanemode " so no luck ... like i didn't tried that...
so stil no solution ....

cant beleve i'm the only one with this issue since it happend to me twice...

I'm working on a comparable issue with my notebook. I also own a Mavic. This notebook seems to have great difficulty in even seeing both WIFI hotspots from Mavic and Tello when running Android. However, since this laptop can also boot into Windows, if I do that first and attempt to connect to either of these drones, and then simply reboot the laptop into Android and then it sees the drones and can connect.

At some point I will pound into the Mavic parameters and see if there is a way to lock its WIFI hotspot to a specific channel, and see if this changes anything, in case the issue is some sort of region lock, as I am in Canada and our public radio space is narrower than FCC...

Hi Medeska

I have the exact same issue on a newly bought spares-or-repair drone. Looking at the flight logs, it did 2X <1min flights a week ago, so it suggests that the seller may have run the firmware update and hit this issue.

In Loader Mode does yours show firmware as V0.0 and battery as critically low?*

I also find that a) changing SSID details doesn't save the new setting, b) enabling logs does work and c) turning off Tello device SN does work. So it's not as if the memory isn't capable of being written to.

* Actually forget that bit, I've just checked a working drone and that also shows low battery and no firmware version.

Hey! I am new here, this is the exact issue that I am having. Does anyone have a fix? I have tried updating the firmware on 6 different devices and I am getting the same issue.

Were you able to fix this issue?
