NICE!!

Thanks for your support, it really helped and without any "workaround", just strait on. The "new" firmware 1.9.0.3_278 seems to be a roll back from july 2010. Will try to put camera in op-mode in premises to see if initial night-mode works at it should and eventually try to forget this glitch and get trust for Arlo again.

I tried to find the original poster with his solution to downgrade to firmware that bricked a lot of Arlo Q's. 

 

The solution can be found in this post "arlo q and q plus not syncing after firmware update 2020" from someone called Geoff.. Many many thanks for your solution...

 

His solution: create an open Wifi-network without a password, go through the normal process in which you add a new device, add your device to that open and free network and wait for a little bit so it can download and install the downgraded firmware, then proceed the process as normal.

 

In my case, i made an open account in my apple airport express

 

All my 3 Arlo Q's were able to downgrade from 1.10 to 1.9 and are now working again!

 

edit: i found the original poster with his solution:
