Don't you have an older version(s) unpacked in your computers downloads folder??

Regardless, you shouldn't need to revert to old FW version if you're using the most current matching software plugin. The FW version 2.10 should work for any plugin version later than 1.09.

Cheers,

Dave.

I've never updated the firmware nor the plugin, so I don't have any old versions.
I'm forced to do this update because LX521 plans come with XML files incompatible with old plugins.

Few days ago I had an old plugin and old firmware, and I could listen to music.
Now I have a new firmware and a new plugin, and the minidsp is unusable.
So the trivial thing to try is revert the change: install an old plugin and use it to "update" the firmware to a very old version.

lduarte1973: I just used the file you sent me and I get the same result - the update hangs forever at "verify started" with the progress bar all green.
The input selector doesn't light but the preset light does. the unit won't connect but it will accept more firmware updates which all fail the same way.

MiniDSP support is yet to answer any of my emails or forum posts requesting this.
I interpret the silence from them as "your unit is dead and cannot be revived, sorry for the update..."

No, it's absolutely not dead, and is only two minutes away from being updated and working correctly if you follow the proper procedure.

Here's what I would do:
1. Install the latest plugin version. Version 1.11.

2. Attempt to update the firmware via the new software GUI. Restore....Upgrade Firmware.

3. If that stops or hangs then power off your unit and then re-power with the reset button held in. That will get it into the boot-loader....guaranteed.

4. Then reattempt Step 2.

I know this will work, because I just finished recovering another users unit who was in exactly the same situation as you.

Cheers,

Dave.

Thanks for the help, I will try this (many times) tonight, but that's exactly what I've been doing.

1. Install the latest plugin version. Version 1.11. - done, that's what I started with.

2. Attempt to update the firmware via the new software GUI. Restore....Upgrade Firmware. - done, hangs at "verify started", waited for 2 hours.

3. If that stops or hangs then power off your unit and then re-power with the reset button held in. That will get it into the boot-loader....guaranteed. - correct, it does go into bootloader and lets me repeat the process with the same result.
Alternatively I can go to bootloader and select "verify" (instead of "program/verify") and then it just returns failure.

4. Then reattempt Step 2. - did that many times, but i'll try some more.
