Firmware upstate stuck at 90% lots

I had 4 devices that would not update firmware and never went past 90%, although worked fine. I had a couple spare and bought another 2 new ones direct from ITEAD. I’m using the same wifi that has successfully updated some Basics and Pow 1 or 2 and a Th. 7 won’t update. The one that does is an old one that was refusing before. The brand new ones from the ITEAD store were supplied with old firmware (2.6). I tried proximity. I tried changing wifi network. I tried changing to b/g/n. This is clearly a bug and not just a dodgy device or two. For 7 of 8 to complain, including 4 unused and 2 brand new… It seems to me to be a Th thing, although I’ve seen it in some Pow1 I used to have in past.

My 2 POW (1st version) is showing 2.6.1 as the latest firmware in the eWeLink app. I use these switches in a waterproof enclosure to control seasonal devices using Alexa. Alexa app will control them, the eWeLink will control them when on cell data, not on local network. Alexa verbal commands would also not work. I deleted the devices from my EweLink app and added them back in, using the local WAP function. Now Alexa works using verbal commands, but the app (which worked a couple of times), gives me a Failed, try again message like before. Is this a firmware issue, is 2.6.1 the latest or is this POW switch now obsolete?
