Automatic Update Note

The automatic update mechanism will probably not work due to a SSL certificate checking issue. If you want to use the update function, you'll need to manually patch a file on your sd card:

  1. log in using SSH or putty (see shell access)
  2. remount the filesystem read-write: mount -o remount,rw /
  3. edit the problematic file: nano /programs/motioneye/src/
  4. add the following line at the beginning of the file: import ssl; ssl._create_default_https_context = ssl._create_unverified_context
  5. save and exit: Ctrl+O, Enter, Ctrl+X
  6. run the reboot command
  7. when your motionPie gets back, the update function should work just fine
