Valetudo - Xiaomi Vacuum Dustcloud alternative, Live Maps


#43

Thanks a lot. I finally managed after 2 evenings to root the vacuum.

I can now ssh to it… but only from the raspberry that has the key (ssh key, I think) which is NOT the host that runs HASS.

The vacuum can be controlled by the Mi Home app, but not from HASS, maybe because of this ssh key thing?


#44

Which is the version that can save old maps?


#45

I think for gen2 aka roborock s50 it should be v1518


#46

I have gen 1, you know for those?


#47

I’m not quite sure, but i dont think that gen1 has this feature. I think its gen2 only for now.


#48

Now I can enter my rooted Vacuum from the same raspberry pi with ssh keys (user root, password mypassword).

If I try to enter from any other machine (ubuntu where HASS is) I can’t entrer, permission denied, even if user and password are correct.

Need top understand all this ssh keys think. Man sometimes linux is difficult, for me lol


#49

Ok thank you


#50

Might be the wrong thread but since here a a lot of ppl reading with experience: can I downgrade my rockrobo s50? I’m experiencing some troubles with newer firmwares.


#51

Hi, did you manage? Any tutorial which to follow?


#52

What u mean? Espeak or my map?


#53

Voices/music, would be cool to have the robot say “now I am going to clean the kitchen” meanwhile playing an mp3 or radio sration, and when finished “the kitchen is clean now” lol


#54

You can achieve that with an automation and tts … just by listening the sensor of the vacuum. You can install all kind of software on the robot. But i don’t recommend to install stuff which upgrades/ updates / changes packages on it. We never know which hidden problems could appear :slight_smile:


#55

Tts on the robot, cool, how?

I guess is not possible to install without the risk of updating core functions, hence too risky to brick it, got it!


#56

Basically it’s ubunut 14 on the robo… u can install all packages you want. But I HIGHLY RECOMMEND not to do so! Breaking the robot yould be the risk :slight_smile:


#57

I wonder if there is a reset/restore option of the OS. I installed nano on mine with no issues so far.


#58

nano is harmless .)


#59

and alsa? :slight_smile:

Tried to install it but says dependency are missing, so I stopped

#60

#61

No, may I?


#62

indeed as repository changes and packages are not found without updating the list / packages
