Smartsolar firmware 1.59 update

I saw the latest MPPT firmware was released stating it applies to all the models, however noticed the Smartsolar 75/15 does not get updated using the latest version of IOS VictronConnect 5.47 or the Android version and remains on 1.56. Can this point in relation to "all models" be clarified please? The larger models updated in line with earlier releases and the documentation guides.

v1.59 is not jet included in the current official VictronConnect version.
It is included in the latest beta version.

If you want to install v1.59 on your devices you have to download the beta of VictronConnect or the FW files from Victron Professional

If you have a GX device you maybe can also update the MPPT via the VRM portal.
Via the VRM portal are new FW version available faster.

Thank you. That explains why the GX connected devices all updated and not VictronConnect.

I have just upgraded a SmartSolar 100/20 that already had firmware BT2.25 & v1.56.

Yesterday the controller wanted to upgrade from v1.56 to latest and afterwards the Load Turned Off and tried any setting on Load Output but still shows as Off with a 75% fully charged 12V battery and two 200W solar panels. 0V on Load Output.

Was working fine before the update as downloaded history etc.

The controller was still showing the solar panels charging.

Can I reload the firmware or revert back to 1.56?
