Got a new live and after setup needed to update the firmware. Downloaded the 1.01.11 from the site and unzipped to the root of a USB thumb drive. Went into setup and it saw that there was an update available and clicked to proceed. It did a few things then rebooted and came up with the Updating firmware screen but sat on 0% for over an hour and wouldn’t do anything. I finally had to power off the unit. If I boot up without the thumb drive it has the splash screen but stays there. If I put the thumb drive in it comes up to the updating firmware screen but stays at 0%. Any ideas. I’ve updated firmware on more things than I can remember but never had an issue like this. Am I screwed?
No, I had the same problem.
The firmware loader has problems with some usb sticks.
Especially if they are greater than 2GB.
By using the smallest one I have (1GB) it worked fine.
Mine updated great off a 16GB stick.
