I tried updating a 750 from 4.x and got as far as something like 5.08
Attempts to upgrade further to 6.3x just gave me a boot loop.
Netinstall worked for me and the thing is now happily on 6.42.x

Re: Mikrotik in the news..bad news

I'm not really sure what Mikrotik can do about the kit out there that still isn't patched. These routers probably haven't been logged into at all for years.
If hackers can login and change the config. then all anybody else needs to do is login and update the software. Job done. Simple.

Re: Winbox v3.16 released!

I left a CHR with just the Dude Settings dialog open and closed Winbox.
When I re-opened it, it had the IP Settings dialog open instead.
This is perfectly repeatable across at least ROS 6.42.6 and 6.43rc44 so I conclude it's another Winbox problem.
