Soft Reset#

If ever your NextBox doesn’t start or behaves strangely the soft reset might fix your problems The soft reset functionality tries to fix some common failures on your NextBox. So whenever something is wrong, e.g. the NextBox doesn’t start, the first thing you could try is a soft reset.

To start the soft reset on your NextBox simply press the hardware button 2 times within 2 seconds.

The NextBox LED will change to blue on every press, after the second press it will change to blinking blue (see LED documentation). Once the LED has finally reached green again for at least 20 seconds your NextBox is ready for use again. Please do not unplug your NextBox during this process as that might break something.



The hardware button is a pinhole-style button similar to other embedded devices. In order to press it, it is recommended to use a thin (~1mm) needle-like pin. E.g., the pin to remove a sim-card from a smartphone is working great. Further take care to not press the button too hard, be careful, there should be a recognizable haptic feedback (button click) with minimal applied force.
