Somehow my i9 didn't upgrade via Wifi. But I got it upgraded with this guide:
Got a message saying 38.7 is available. Thought I'd make a new entry to track the experience.
For the update using USB, there is a guide here: https://www.electrolux.se/wellbeing/discover/robot-vacuum-cleaner-purei9/software-update-with-usb-connection/
If that page isn't available for you (I get my page in swedish), you can download the update file from: https://web.rvccloud.electrolux.com/home/latestfirmware?platform=0.13
Remove the dustbin and connect a USB data cable (not charging cable) to the connector on the left side. The display should show SUPG. Put the file on the USB mass storage that will show up. Eject the mass storage before unplugging the USB cable and the update will start.
You can disable WIFI. But it will have some drawbacks, e.g. no scheduled cleanings will run. To disable wifi seethe bottom of this page: https://www.electrolux.co.uk/wellbeing/discover/explore-robot-vaccum-cleaners-pure-i-9/open-source-software-information/
Currently there is no factory reset available.
There is no available interface to change settings on the robot. The app is used to make all changes with the excption for the wifi etc explained in the link above.
The release note is available in the app when a new update is pending. I know there have been discussions about also publish the release notes on the community too. But I don't know the status for that.

I have found the best way to clean the washable filter is under the garden hose. I use a nozzle that creates a moderate pressure spray/mist. It is much more effective than rinsing it under a running tap and doesn’t appear to damage the filter.
The release should happen in mid May. No promise on exact date as we may find things to fix in our last step of testing which is a field test on a larger scale than lab tests. It is not far away and we are doing our best to speed it up to get all the good things out as soon as we can.
@Mattisk, Please connect the robot to a computer and copy the rbl file from it, and send it to me in a private message.
Cheers for that - we're otherwise happy with "Dung Beetle" - he (she) works ok apart from this, does a good job for us so we'll wait to see what the future holds in terms of S/W updates for him/her. Thanks for the reponses tho. Cheers
@MagnusHedberg Thanks for the logs, we will look into them.
To all: Good to hear that the fix works and thanks for notifying us.
Great to hear that you like the robot! Right now the robot does not remember much about your home. Something along those lines are in the pipes for this year.
