Glad to hear your speaker is functional again :-)

 

In my case factory reset (on Spotify Firmware installed) didn't bring any result - still could not connect Wi-Fi by ANY of multiple possible ways.

Hi Subuk,

 

I've got exactly the same issue as you, I do the firmware upgrade from the JBL US support web site, and wifi/airplay is not working anymore. Could you send me please both your older and spotify firmware please ?

 

Thanks!

I receive multiple questions from L8 users with the same problem.
I only have the firmware for L16.
I would not risk installing L16 FW on L8 speaker - you may brick it completely.
I suggest you to contact UK's JBL support - they helped me.
All the others (tried US, PL, JP) didn't give a sh.t

Thanks for the fast reply. Can you send me your spotify firmware? Maybe the file is bricked on the site? I think the spotify firmware is the same on L16 an L8.

The trick is you need an older firmware to get it back to work.

Spotify firmware won't do the job.

You need the older (without spotify) firmware.

The procedure that worked for me is described on the first site of this thread and marked as a solution.

Of course I can e-mail you those file if you still want to try :-)

Never mind, did fix it by the files from jbl websites but the only app is not working for streaming my music when I put it on dlna mode is jbl app lol it sees my L16 while in dlna mode in the app but not shows it in out put list so I can select it to play. I'm using Samsung Music Player for streaming my music to it.
