Re: Bose Soundlink Revolve Speaker // Automatically turns on
>How do I not have the speaker turn on automatically? Or how do I go backward on the firmware update?
1. It has to do with Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) mode. That is a feature that the Revolve implemented. It is not a bug - it is 'by design'. You can check which devices implement BLE when they are turned 'off' with various free BLE checking apps for iphones and droids. For example, the Revolve emits a BLE signal which headphones such as the QC35 do not. This allows Bose to turn on the revolve from the Connect app and to put two Revolves into party and stereo mode from the app. You really only have two options: (a) turn it off for real (with no BLE) by holding down the multifunction key until the lights blink or (b) unpair the Revolve from anything that you don't want to interact with the Revolve when it is off and emitting a BLE signal. As you can tell the OFF button is not OFF. It is effectively STANDBY.
2. Bose does not allow for firmware downgrades and in addition this is not an added firmware issue. From what I can tell, it was designed this way from the beginning.
