Jambox - Unofficial Support

A few months ago, I wrote a post about upgrading the firmware on the original Jawbone Jambox.

After learning that Jawbone had gone into administration, I decided to get the last firmware files for the other two Jambox models and planned to host them here. I have recently learnt that the Jawbone website has finally gone offline. Unfortunately, when I heard about this, this page was no-where near finished.

This page is currently a bit of a rush job and will be refined over the next few weeks, but should contain the majority of the firmware files for the various Jambox models.

To flash these files to the Jambox, you will need the PC or Mac software available here:

Jawbone Updater 2.2.5 for Windows – md5sum: a97b0c8a70f19347b0c675c91edebdc5

Jawbone Updater 2.2.5 for MacOS – md5sum: 00a6e5d5514dfa595237d5b7b1fc0849

Until this page is finished, please follow the instructions on the blog post for how to upgrade your device.

Attention Mac Users

It has been brought to my attention that trying to upgrade the Mini Jambox on a Mac can brick the device. Please use the Windows version to upgrade this particular device.

  • Press and hold the Play/Pause button (circular button on top).
  • While still holding the button, plug the Mini Jambox to a power source.
  • Voilá, your Jambox should now be in recovery mode and you can flash it/upgrade it with a new language package.

Shout out to Paul who emailed me to make me aware of this.
