    When Flashing device, don't forget to "Reset" the SSH password for your device as the default SSH password for image is not secure (and probably known).

    There is no need to reset SSH password.  The password will change itself after pairing.  And will change itself once while.  It also changes if you enter and exit support mode, and after each reboot.

    I can't get my imac to recognize the microSD card that came with it using any means I have on hand.  I had placed it into an empty SD adapter and directly into the SD slot on the imac as well as several different card readers.  If I was to grab another card to put in here, what format should the card be before attempting to flash it with etcher?

    Scott, if the card cannot be recognized, then the card is bad.   For etcher to write a new card, formatting is not needed it, the program will dump a bit exact copy of the image

    I had real problems with resetting this Firewalla blue and in the end I had to buy an external Micro SD card reader to try and flash the card. The card would not flash so I ended up buying a new 32GB micro SD card and that was flash-able and I used the beta image file to get it working and now I am reconfiguring it from scratch. Had to uninstall the Firewalla App too and reinstall.

    Currently I have added the box but it says its initialising and will take about 1 minute.

    Its been running for 5 minutes now so still waiting hence my time to write this. Wish me luck!

    Its not straight forward and has taken me half a day to sort this so far. Surprised the card failed .. its only 4-5 months old
