READ THIS FIRST

You may need to perform a two-step firmware update, depending on firmware version currently installed on your M18 unit. If you current firmware version is 187 or earlier, please update to version 221 first. Then, after power cycling the unit, you can perform the desired firmware update to the latest version. Here is a summary of required actions, depending on your current firmware version:

  • 177 ->update to 221 first -> update to the lastest version
  • 182 -> update to 221 first -> update to the latest version
  • 203 or later -> update to the latest version
  • We strongly advise NOT to perform a firmware downgrade (that is, with a version which is earlier than the one you currently have on your system). Therefore, do not perform an update to 221 if you already have 222 or later.

    You can find the 221 package here
