Firmware upgrading


Upgrading the firmware on the device requires use of the command line interface.

* To begin, place the new firmware on an SD card or USB drive, and attach them to the device. * As per the Command Line instructions, connect to the device, and enter the following command, replacing “filename” with the file you copied onto your Flash drive. Include the name of the device, such as sd:/firmware1.fw or usb1:/firmware3.fw:

flash upgrade (filename)

* Firmware upgrade progress will be displayed on the screen. When complete, if successful, enter the following command:

flash reboot

* The device should now be using the new firmware.
