Topic: Not updating from USB

I have one working and the other of my two DASHES is bricked. I downloaded the new update on my computer and saved the .zip file to usb.
Tried to update from usb but it ts greyed out. Tried to factory update but it returned to brick status.
If there is any hope, I would like to hear it. I am very sad to loose it.

Re: Not updating from USB

Could you try a different USB?

If the usb drive has a light, it should blink to indicate that things are being read.

Cleaning up any loose bits and bytes.

It matters the order you do the update. Plug in USB dongle then startup holding menu button down 3 seconds to get to special options. USB should then light up to push for update.

The dash is also very picky about USB dongles.  Some dongles that seem to work fine on a PC fail to be recognized by the dash.

If it continues to fail, try another one.

Be sure they're formatted as FAT or FAT32.

  • Power off the Dash

  • Plug in the USB

  • Hold down the snooze/menu button

  • power on the dash while holding the button

  • continue holding the button until the screen that says "hold button for three seconds" disappears

  • after a few minutes, you should get to the special options screen

  • select 'update from usb'
