New Firmware Released v1.6.9

As promised, our latest firmware is now available to all of our customers.

Please note that this firmware is only applicable to early bird purchases.

(Pre-orders from the FIRST and SECOND delivery cycle only).

The third delivery cycle (and all standard orders made after that) are ALREADY UP TO DATE!

To check which version firmware you have installed, simply click on the All Apps button on your device. Then go to System Update. This application will display which version you have currently installed. If it displays v1.6.9, then you are already up to date. If it displays a lower number, this means that you should update your firmware!

Please note: the update needs to be done using your PC and not via the System Update app. The reason for this is because we have a dual boot system running (2 operating systems installed), it is much safer to do a clean install using the flash method on your PC.
