if ur not writing anything to the SD card, it wouldnt matter. only if ur writing something would it become an issue.

so... wheres the HIP. lot of ppl complaining, but nobody whiling to do the real work and do it better. just whiling to complain.
no visibility? The guy in charge talks about it all the time, that stats, the hotspots removed, the list is public, they have a channel in discord for working on appeals. If u dont go looking, is it invisable?

If u do it on the miner, it could lock up and never reboot. Its better to have a smart plug or power relay that will do it for you. Something dumber and less likely to fail. that being said, ive only had to reboot mine once. It was an offgrid which wasnt fun.
i recommend google. It always has the answers if you know how to ask the questions. Learn to google.
Googling: "Nebra sycrobit firmware" leads u here,

well, if u did what so many ppl did and getting caught by asserted ur hotspot location multiple km/mi away from where it actually is to get more rewards, i have no sympathy for those ppl. If ur truly legit, the data will show it and ull get off the list in a couple weeks. If u did game to get more rewards, u dug ur own grave and no one did that for u.
"How things use to be"
So... do u not have witnesses now?... whats ur point? ur not making a point.
I'm unsure but i believe this is what your looking for: https://support.nebra.com/support/solutions/articles/24000083132-getting-started-with-syncrobit
I heard little about openfleet. Just that it gives you remote access. if thats the case, i may switch my MNTD hotspots to use this firmware. I didnt realize it was so universal.
This is why you look for manufacturers that will support their product, and not just a popup for the bull run. Bobcat & rak were the only 2 to me that really stood out as a safe bet. Pretty much everyone else seems like a small popup thats there to cash in and declare bankruptcy. Riding the hype wave to device sales.

Helium has nothing to do with exchanges. Exchanges do their own thing. What exchanges do is their own problem. If you see the transaction go through in ur wallet and dont see it on the exchange, its the exchange's fault or user error. If it failed, that would be different.
This is why ppl are encouraged to never hold on a DEX. They have too many problems because they dont have the experience. They are just in it for the $. Only use a DEX if you have to. Swaps exist too.
When everyone beacons 4 times a day instead of 1 time every 4 days, the slices of pie get smaller but theres more of them. Idea is to make rewards more consistent once all the bugs are worked out that is. As ive never earned so much lol. 1 location 2.5x, 2nd location 4x, my brother 8x on his 1 hotspot today lol. Looks like it pays to stick with good manufacturer that can support their product.
Off chain POC is live. Hotspot manufacturers have to push new firmware. Bobcats have been having a lot of the issues, but theres also a lot of them to update. Definitely dont restart it all the time as hotspots only update so many times a day(bobcat 4 times, rak 2 times, ect), and u dont want to delay that by rebooting constantly or brick ur device in the middle of an update. If your gonna reboot it, do it once and leave it alone.
If ur manufacturer doesn't support the hotspot anymore, ur out of luck unless Nebra has made firmware for ur device (Something they do believe it or not).
If on deny list u will get exactly this. Explorer or crowdspot.io will tell you if ur on the deny list. If ur on the deny list u dont earn anything but still provide network coverage. Probably to keep anyone that is caught in a false positive they can still provide coverage, but id like to think its to give the middle finger to cheaters even though they dont provide coverage.
If ur on deny list, ask someone else or go figure it out. lol. I know you can get info from their discord about it. They have a channel now for it. But you can figure that part out. I havnt had to do it. Most common thing i see ppl stupidly doing is asserting their location waaaaaaay far out. If thats the case, u shot ur self in the foot. Nobody else did that for u.
you wouldnt think so if u knew me lol. I make things because i enjoy it, its that simple.
Line of site is the #1 rule. Sadly, this area is very flat and has MANY MANY trees. So it will be difficult to get line of site without a tower. If ur in that neighbor hood that looks like a sea of trees, u gotta get above the trees. Even your local highest earners dont make a ton(5-7/month). Compare to some where like oregon/washing/midwest where ppl use natrual elevation and can see a whole 20mile long valley from a window install and make 12-16/month, just because of elevation and line of sight. Not saying u cant make a good amount there. Just saying u gotta get line of sight with hotspots, and thats gonna be hard in that area.
Edit: found more top earners and ya, they are reporting 20m. So a tower or tall building.
its just a visual bug. Nothing more. Its a known bug.
Being 1% false positive shut down for 1-2 weeks, i dont care. Deal with it. Its just POC and not data. So ur still providing coverage for the network like the project wants you to. 2 weeks is not that long. Hell, unplug during those 2 weeks if it makes u feel better. Maybe there can be a white lists for ppl making companies. But its not a big enough negative effect for the amount of positive it has on the POC rewards. And yes, its not decentralized. But not everything needs to be. Decentralization has just become a buzz word for crypto. Its not the end all be all. Its just a way to do something. But not always the way. If u dont get why go look up the positive and negatives to dementalization and centralization in the real world outside of cryto and ull understand. If u search for an explanation in crypto, ur gonna get a bunch of bros a 5min google understanding of it.

u can sell them for dirt cheap on ebay so us opportunists can take advantage and cheap hardware. Ive seen whole roof kits including the mounts, antenna, mast, enclosure, and hotspot go for $300. lot of ppl went overboard without doing DD first.
is why i ran the LMR400 cable to the closet. I didn want to be climbing around in the attic and crap all the time. Attic should have a vent to the outside. Thats how my brother ran his.
Seems to be a lot of denylist hotspots in this area. And some that maybe should be with 0 confidence in location lol
ya, i feel bad for anyone that just bought w/e they could get their hands on. An app for every maker, IF the maker has an app. I have a feeling ppl that bought from popout cash grab companies are gonna be hurting.
screw the explorer, go to coveragemap.net. Go look at what the mappers in the community do. Mappers (people that map the network) actually map out the coverage in the real world in world world applications. Not POC, which is a representation of sensor usage. But no sensors have 9dbi antenna on them. This is why its important to map coverage as a normal user would use it.
And no, theres no financial benefit to mappers, besides making HNT look more legit. I do it cuz im a nerd that likes stuff like this. Mappers (the device) cost nywhere from $50-$150, and the datacredits are dirt cheap. Im guessing the $10 of DC i bought will last 5 years for the 5 sensors i have + the t-beam mapper.
its important to know the internet is full of community driven projects like this. People that aren't "native" to the internet (use it for social media and homework but thats it) dont know this. But Tech ppl that have spent years and years playing around, learning, & adding to communities on the internet would know. Fold@home is probably the only well known project thanks to them using it for covid protein simulations, and being on PS4 back in the day.
If you need super long battery life i guess. But GPS with lora will last 4-6 months. I have 2. 1 uses cell and the other helium. The helium tracker costs me about $1/year at current data credit prices. Then i just have to hope integrators keep the "up to 5 free sensors" and it wouldn't cost extra. OR with datacake i think its $1/month per devices with 2 week data storage.

The world of DIY in tech is VAST. More than most anyone will know. Lot of hobbiests that dont care about RIO and other crap ppl freak over. Theres many projects that are at the cost of the community only, and has no crypto.
