Setup airCube when QR sticker is corrupted or lost


Lost your QR sticker or it is corrupted? Starting firmware 2.0.1 it is not a problem anymore


Setting up device for the first time (including when it is reset to factory defaults) - the first boot screen will appear with link "Cannot read QR code".

If your QR sticker is corrupted (or you just don't want to read and input text from QR sticker) - you can just press this link and shortly press reset button - then you have a few minutes to set a custom new password.
