    Hi Kari,

    There is no download link, the firmware v29 file name "WD7START.SEF" is attached.  Please copy it into the USB flash drive and insert it to the unit to proceed firmware update.

    Please make sure the file name is same as "WD7START.SEF" I would suggest you to reformat the 2GB USB flash drive and do it again.

    The firmware v30 file "WD7START.SEF" is attached in the link, just save it into a USB flash drive and keep the file name as it is.

    With V29 I could connect via web browser via http://iusb or http://192.168.0.X or GoodReader with ftp://iusb.... but with V30 I can no longer use the name but only the numerical IP address. Did something change?

    as a funder of the kickstarter for this device, i am DISGUSTED. the V30 firmware FIXED NOTHING. i can't even connect to my cloudftp anymore. i get the ridiculous "WiFi media kit stopped to working" error.

    v29 had issues with iOS v7 so i updated to v30 and now it is completely and hopelessly broken.

    is there an ETA for v31 so i can try that? (not that i have any hope that it will actually solve anything...)

    To Dennis,

    the error "WiFi media kit stopped to working" is not because the issue from iUSBport.  It's  most likely the WiFi on iPad has to changed to recpnnect to the previous WiFi network.  Please check the WiFi setting on iPad. 

    The v30 does fix the issue of WiFi connection in iOS7 without going to the Login white page.

    @Kelvin:
    I connect from any iOS device now and the connection appears fine in the settings app. When I try to interact with the cloudftp/iusbsport it takes some time and then I get nothing.

    The wifi media kit comes from the iusbsport app when I try to connect to the cloudftp/iusbsport device.

    The firmware has gotten steadily worse, not better. V30 is complete toast as far as I can see.

    If I had a full set of the firmware files, I'd go backward until I found one that still worked ok. It used to work!

    The firmware version v29 for iUSBport can be downloaded at:

    https://hypershop.zendesk.com/entries/42937608-iUSBport-CloudFTP-firmware-v29

    Regarding the issue with v30, please try the following suggestion:

    1.) On the iPad/iPhone WiFi, select Forget the "iUSBport"

    2.) Clear the Safari cookies and history

    3.) and reboot the iPad/iPhone.

    @Kelvin:

    I tried the 3 step process you recommended. It had mixed results. First I forgot the iUSBport network, cleared Safari's data and rebooted. Then I connected a Western Digital My Passport drive (1TB WDBACX0010BBK-01) which worked perfectly fine before the V30 firmware was applied. This drive is no longer seen by the iUSBport device. I can connect via WiFi to the iUSBport and use Safari to connect. But I do not see the hard drive at all.

    I then switched to a 1.5 TB Seagate FreeAgent GoFlex. This drive was seen by the iUSBport but when you connect via Safari you get a completely wonky display. Screenshots of this ugly mess are attached...

    This is maddening. The MyPassport drive ALWAYS WORKED! I was only able to use the 1.5TB GoFlex after I updated the firmware long ago (when it was still called CloudFTP)

    So I downgraded to V29 and found that my ability to read the MyPassport drive was broken in V29. (but the display was no longer wonky like you see in the 2 attached photos...)

    I then booted the iUSBport and plugged in the 1.5TB GoFlex. The iUSBport saw the drive and I could interact with the files but I had the completely wonky display as seen in the attached screenshots.

    At this point, I am sorry I even own this thing. It started off with real promise but the firmware updates are not delivering that promise.

    Hello,

    The header of the WD7START.SEF file uploaded here is WD70030 20131025, so, I guess it is V30.
    My iUSBPort reports V29:20130328 162607

    When I tried to upgrade the FW - nothing happened, although cloudftp.app was installed OK.

    So, what is the reason iUSB did not recognize the FW?

    I've tried again without any success but apart from this, I think my CloudFtP need a little fix because it always freezes when i plug any usb drive. 80% of the time is not working and it's like brand new because I've never used It since I've found it a couple of days ago after losing it in my room. It's the Kickstarter edition.
