Tuya-Convert: Device stuck on “vtrust-recovery” SSID

tuya-convert vtrust-recovery

I recently had an issue with a flashed smart power point. For some reason the device was broadcasting the “vtrust-recovery” SSID. I tried to flash it a couple of times but I couldn’t get it to work.

I installed nmap and decided to run a scan. I connected my laptop to the vtrust-recovery SSID and ran an nmap scan. I found my device and managed to go to its IP address in my browser! Phew, so I can connect to it. It’s not bricked after all.

Then it dawned on me! What if I try and undo the last flash and get out of vtrust-recovery?

So here are the steps to go back to original firmware and get your device flashed again, correctly!

UNDO A TUYA-CONVERT FLASH ON A DEVICE THAT IS STUCK IN VTRUST-RECOVERY

  1. Connect to the vtrust-recovery SSID using your laptop (mine is a mac in this case)
  1. Open up Terminal
  1. Type in the following and press ENTER
  1. Your device will undo the last flash and reboot
  1. Retry flashing your device and it should come back to life!
