Well, it would be nice if they would put out a message that describes the fixes and/or updates.

I am most interested to see if the DTMF talk-off issue (i.e. beeping) is any better.

All 4 of my Jacks, which are on separate computers, have been updated with the new upgrade. No issues with it yet.

If you are running the stroth's utility, I just clicked 'upgrade magicJack software' and the upgrade started.

I have just tried several times to pull the new update even downloaded from the link posted above and even tried from magicjacks page. I don't get a new version. I even went as far as removing all the files from the laptop that I use as a server for magicjack and then let it reinstall still no new version.

I read on one of the other discussion threads that there may be an issue with Vista and the upgrade, so perhaps they pulled it? Don't know, but it runs fine on XP.

I'm thinking it was pulled now as well. I've been reading another post that had a screen shot of it and I posted in there too that I think it was pulled. Since it seems that not many people are talking about it.

I don't know if its been pulled, however, I had it force feed to me this morning... Looks like its all working from my end... and as a bonus, seems the back ground beeping has gone away... Laughing

On my TC, Win XPe SP2 ....
Performance same as B/4 (very, very good). Will place a call to myself after everyone gets up to test the previous registry modifications enabling the home answering machine. Will post if any issues.

Yesterday my MJ (on TC5700, 256/256, XPe, SP2) stopped working. Rebooted and it worked for few hours then down again. Today, I connected remotely and realized that MJ was unable to restart after the new update. Started MJ it manually and it worked. Few hours later, same thing, MJ down. Disabled EWF (isnt this that enables/unables writing changes on "HDD"?). Now up and running since couple of hours. Will see. My question is this: do you need to disable EWF for the changes to be registered and keep it disabled thereafter for all future updates/upgrades?

Yes, EWF must be off for the changes to be written to the DOM (Disk on Memory).

It is up to you as to whether or not you keep EWF enabled. EWF is there to lengthen the life of your DOM module. I use it. I also check the TC once in in the morning to see if it rebooted (due to a "pushed" update). If it has, I go thru the exercise manually (disable EWF, update, enable EWF). Ya, it is extra work but I want the control just in case a pushed update causes problems.

Thanks for sharing,
Can you expand on this "EWF is there to lengthen the life of your DOM module". Why is that?

Because flash memory has a finite amount of read/write cycles. So less is more.

Joe Sica

Aren't those cycles reversible, ie. counter goes back to zero with a reboot? If not that would mean that these flash memories have finite life and when the total cycles are met, they shut off? Am I getting this last point right? Thx

From Wikipedia:
Memory wear
Another limitation is that flash memory has a finite number of erase-write cycles. Most commercially available flash products are guaranteed to withstand around 100,000 write-erase-cycles, before the wear begins to deteriorate the integrity of the storage.[citation needed] The guaranteed cycle count may apply only to block zero (as is the case with TSOP NAND parts), or to all blocks (as in NOR). This effect is partially offset in some chip firmware or file system drivers by counting the writes and dynamically remapping blocks in order to spread write operations between sectors; this technique is called wear levelling. Another approach is to perform write verification and remapping to spare sectors in case of write failure, a technique called Bad Block Management (BBM). For portable consumer devices, these wearout management techniques typically extend the life of the flash memory beyond the life of the device itself, and some data loss may be acceptable in these applications. For high reliability data storage, however, it is not advisable to use flash memory that would have to go through a large number of programming cycles. This limitation is meaningless for 'read-only' applications such as thin clients and routers, which are only programmed once or at most a few times during their lifetime.

The last paragraph seems to point to TC being read only so in fact it may be a moot point to turn EWF off!! One learns something new every day!!!

COOL!

Not sure how to read that,
if TC is read only, then why even bother having EWF on the XPe? Also, when plugging in the MJ, there are files and scripts being written somewhere on the flash, right? By far not a IT specialist ... just thinking .. any ways, it looks like the MJ didnt like the new upgrade since I got a "Bad sector " warning on a red background on the dongle image.!! Then as I reported earlier, it seems to work fine that I disable the EWF so that the new update and other scripts can be written on the flash.
Anyway, thanks for explaining,
Stav

Heck I dont have nor ever owned a TC. But I am just surmizing here ( uhhh a nice word for guessing Smile, so I am sure MUCH smarter people on here than I can do a better job explaining it!!

I never ran mine as a service so I cant say for sure. Maybe undo it running as a service and see how it works then. OR go to their web page and d/l the update and run it again..

Since it has been about 2 weeks since the update I am sure we would have heard on this forum if running it as a service no longer worked...

i revisited the link:

http://www.phoneservicesupport.com/magic-jack-as-a-service-a-better-way-t1364.html

i changed the parameters for the executable in the registry to the localservice directory in C:\Documents and Settings\LocalService. i also changed the target as mentioned in the link to:

"C:\Documents and Settings\LocalService\Application Data\mjusbsp\magicJack.exe" /scf _magicJackPersonalDataRoot "J:\magicJack"

so far so good.
