Trouble Updating Firmware Over USB3.0

Post by sgtstaadanko »

Just so you guys are aware, I updated to the latest version of flashpro (2.7.3) and upon attempting to update the firmware to version 114, I was unable to complete the firmware update over a USB3.0 port. The notice that the firmware would be updated came up, I clicked ok, and twice in a row nothing happened. Flashpro stopped responding, and the USB light on the unit went out. The power light was flashing though so I was a bit confused. I unplugged and force stopped Flashpro, after trying twice i switched to a USB2.0 port and everything worked perfectly.

If you get the problem again I suggest that you update the boot firmware.

plug-in and out very fast from the USB port until the USB LED keeps up. Repeat the plugin/out cyle until if finished.
Don't forget to report your PC after update the flashpro software on your PC!

Had the same issue with a old firmware 2013 on it :D :D
Hard fight with the USB port until the flash was initiated.

With the new version u will be happy. All works fine with USB3.0

Trouble updating to Firmware 115

Post by sgtstaadanko »

The software update to 2.7.4 went fine no issue. I plugged the unit into a usb 2.0 port to avoid any usb 3.0 woes, because i was unable to preform the boot loader update before this new update, and it started with no issues. About halfway through the update the bar just disappeared, Flashpro is not frozen, I can still open new windows, and the power, datalog and usb lights are all still on on the unit. Any ideas? I've just left it sitting right now.

Unplug it and plug it back in. If it needs to update again it will.
