Re: Beacon firmware do you have some detail methods to update the ROM?

Hello Atlas_CN, welcome to the community,

 

if your system is working there should be no need to upgrade the firmware; there is always an element of risk involved which could result in a non-functional system and, worse still, loss of data.  If you plan to change the firmware of your Beacon it is suggested that you ensure you have you data files backed up to another medium before updating.

 

The following, which I have not tested myself, has been suggested by one of my colleagues;

 

Please follow the steps:

1.copy a recovery image of v1.1.12.2(*.img) to the USB disk with 8 GB or larger capacity

2.insert the USB disk into the USB interface on the back of Beacon

3.use a needle insert into the reset hole and press the power button at the same time for more than 15 seconds; Release the two keys when the power LED light begin to flash fast(the power LED light will changing in between white and red)

4.The upgrading process will last for 30 minitues

5.When the power LED light no longer change and keep white(this signal indicates the upgrade process was completed), then reboot the Beacon.
