  • This update will request reboot of device for 3 times to finish completely if device is updating from firmware 1.8.2 and earlier or twice for any other version of firmware.


The first reboot occurs when user press 'update' button in App to start updating. The 2nd and 3rd reboot are automatically without user operation. 

The device display will black out without any display for about 1 minute after 1st reboot when display software is been updated. The unit will reboot after display software update successfully.

The boot code will be updated after 2nd reboot (for firmware 1.8.2 and earlier) and a message will be displayed on device display to warning people not to power off the unit during this stage. The updating of boot code will take about 70 - 80 seconds. The unit will reboot after boot code has been updated.

Please make sure not reboot or turn off the unit during the updating of display and boot code or the unit will no longer able to boot up (will have to return to factory for flash the boot code).
