getPassword problems

See original GitHub issue

I’m having problems getting the password.

When I followed the instructions (using nodejs 7.4 - there are runtime errors using 7.5) I get…

$ npm run getpassword

> dorita980@3.0.2 getpassword C:\dorita980
> node ./bin/getpassword.js ""

Make sure your robot is on the Home Base and powered on (green lights on). Then press and hold the HOME button on your robot until it plays a series of tones (about 2 seconds). Release the button and your robot will flash WIFI light.
Then press any key here...

Looking for robots...
Robot found! with blid/username: XXXXXXXXXX
{ ver: '2',
  hostname: 'Roomba-XXXXXXXXXX',
  robotname: 'Bob',
  ip: '',
  mac: '11:22:33:44:55:66',
  sw: 'v2.0.0-34',
  sku: 'R980000',
  nc: 0,
  proto: 'mqtt' }
data=> 00000000: efbf bd05                                o?=.
Error getting password. Follow the instructions and try again.

I added the “data=>” bit - it’s hexy dumping the packet that came back.

Any ideas?

Just realized you had to hold the home button until it beeps not until it lights up. Oh boy, after installing it via pip, python, python without running setup, and finally through homebrew on my mac, finally got it working.

Awesome script and thank you for posting this.
