Downgrade Firmware


#1

With all these problems encountered with the latest firmware could someone point me to a tutorial to downgrade to the previous .19 firmware?

Many thanks.

OK I think I know how to install a firmware now. Is there a downloadable version of the previous firmware *2.19 anywhere? The WD site only has the latest *3.24 version.

Many thanks,

Adam

OK I’ve found this:

Will post here if the downgrade works.

Following the instructions here:

http://www.wdc.com/wdproducts/updates/?family=wdfwdtv_livehub

Inserting the USB flash drive it did NOT show a firmware update icon on the “settings” bar (which I suppose is the main taskbar with the video, music etc icons). This is probably because the version installed is later than the version on the USB stick.

I don’t know how to carry on. Anyone have explicit instruction on how to get the downgrade (not upgrade) to work?

Many thanks,

Adam

You need to edit the VER file to specify a firmware number greater than the currently installed one.
