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.
