Firmware on i2M

Postby jforsburg » Tue Aug 07, 2012 1:39 pm

Can anyone tell me the correct step-by-step procedure (magic trick) to update the firmware on the i2M.

regardless of what combination I do, it just sits and spins while the interface is grayed out and even if it's ten minutes to an hour to finish but just nothing seems to work. The instruction that I have seem in numerous places are veg and incomplete.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

Jeff

I did see that post and did exactly exactly what it said but still having problem. I put the file in the directory as it said and tried the following (on my
Mac with Lion 10.7)

This is the tree combinations I have tried with no resolutes.

1. Held down the button as I plugged in the i2M and it goes into edit mode
(flashing Red) than I double click on the *.sfu file and the box features goes
gray forever and there is no status progress bar or anything.

2. Plug in the i2M, launch the program and go to the setup page and pick
update firmware, pick the file and it says (No file or directory) freezes.

3. Held down the button as I plugged it in and it goes into edit mode
(flashing Red) launch the program and than double click on the *.sfu file
and the box features goes gray forever and there is no status progress bar
or anything.

What tis the combination? This is driving me nuts...LOL

If you manually put the i2M into update mode (so it flashes red) as you have done, you can simply follow the instructions in the firmware updater manual, which is in the zip file with the updater application.

Where are you double-clicking the .sfu file? You should be able to select the .sfu file, by selecting the "Load file" button in the updater. Once this is done, the updater knows to look for an i2M, and it should then give you the option to update it.

You shouldn't need to double-click the file.

If the .sfu file is on a network drive sometimes you can have problems: the Mac doesn't always treat network files the same as local files. If that's the case, then try copying the .sfu to a local drive.

Are you using the latest firmware updater (version 1.0.2), there were problems in older versions on the Mac.

So, the steps are simply:

(1) disconnect i2M.

(2) Run firmware updater.

(3) Select "Load file" to load the .sfu file.

(4) The updater tells you to connect the i2M.

(5) Connect the i2M while holding down the button, it connects and flashes the logo red.

(6) Press "Update" and it should complete it.
