The audio quality of the [Bose SoundTouch 10](https://www.bose.com/en_us/products/speakers/wireless_speakers/soundtouch-10-wireless-system.html)
@@ -35,3 +36,20 @@ I guess I am still lucky that it works as much as it does without connecting
it to the Internet! But using new devices without giving your data to
manufacturers should not be that difficult! There is no need to integrate so
tightly with online services...
+
+**Update**: I managed to disable the "setup mode"!
+* Connect to the WiFi network created by the SoundTouch;
+* Go to `http://192.0.2.1` and enter the details of any existing network, I
+ created an access point on my laptop without providing any Internet access;
+
+This should make the device leave setup mode. It will still try to connect to
+the WiFi and keep the WiFi indicator flashing, but at this point the
+`3 + Volume Down` works!
+
+If you want to update the software on the device for some reason you can
+connect it to an access point with actual Internet and use the
+`4 + Volume Down` combination to trigger the software update. This does not
+require using any app.

+More details can be found in the [manual](https://www.soundtouch.com/Manuals)
