I got into a lot of trouble when trying to update my Tiko. But I got it to work after reading a comment of a user stating that Tiko seems to have problems with WEP security. Here's what I did:
First, you have to know your router pretty well cause you will have to alter its security settings.
I have a computer with a USB wifi dongle to "talk" with tiko in ist Hotspot mode. Using the recovery page , I set the Wifi update adress to that of my home router wich is not 192.168.1.1. I moved it o 1.10 to be sure to avoid conflict. Thats your first thing to do with the router.
Next, set your router wifi settings to no security, no password and confirm.
On my tp-link router, I can see who's online and the tiko number you got has a serial number , 4 last letters are 4 last letters of the MAC address of your tiko. So, you can see when it is online.
Now turn OFF your tiko, right side up and turn it ON. It will check for update trough your wifi router, update and go back to hotspot mode. Call your Tiko and it should now be up to date. Remember to always use Chrome, no t IE.
Now put your security settings back on your router.
In order to get further update, you will always have to disable security.
I guess the guys at Tiko did it this way for a good reason, but their might be improvement later!
