Maybe we can keep this one on topic, i.e. concerns for the firmware, fixes, workarounds etc. If you have other issues start another thread or use the one thats already on the board.

Hopefully the firmwares become less of a front and center after this release and we can then begin to discuss the successes involved with using the digital technology in the field.

I have a feeling that we have worn out the Mod(s) patience for senseless side talk and would be best served to do as you say and stay on topic. That doesn't mean we can't discuss the good and the bad but remaining civil has been the challenge.

I'll load the firmware onto my 5x X-sight tonight and give a report back to you after a couple of days use.

take the card out and pull the battery cover then power up and it should say firmware installed. I have found if the card is left in the scope seems to look to reinstall the update.

Upon initialization of the new firmware package the scope is absolutely un-responsive to button presses, i.e. you cannot disable Wi Fi ? Is that correct?

no, the new firmware is a two part install, first the main install then reboot and then a "please wait Configuring wifi" screen. the message doesn't go away. I tried manually turning it off which make it and it starts reboot cycling. if i was able to get it to start once but when i tred to enabled the wifi it stated a reboot loop again.

First impressions. Can't turn on GPS. Wifi works but when you turn it off the screen blacks out and comes back on, not a reboot just a blackout for a couple seconds. Stills and video work and stills during video works. All the other functions seem to work. I'll report back after sighting in.

The release notes on the software page point out that GPS is disabled in this release (no geotags, velocity, or altitude). Likewise, standalone stills is turned off, to test the new "stills during video" feature.

Looks like they have identified some of the battery drain issue, and are working on it. Will be curious to see how the sleep mode works, that could be a real winner if they get it right.

Thanks Tapper. I didn't read the notes I just went to testing laugh
On another note you can indeed now remove the batteries after hooking up an external power source.

I really like the direction we're moving. Hopefully my zero isn't full blown off after this install.

my updated worked fine:

- I removed the card and formatted it
- installed the v248 xsight.bin file on the mSD card
- put card in camera and powered on, it did the update, then it powered off and back on and finished updated, then it power off/on again and said it was successfully updated, I selected ok, then it powered off/on again and since the card was in asked if I wanted to installed, I select 'x' to get out, went to the menu and reformatted the mSD card, it later powered off/on again, so I shut down, removed battery cap and put back on, all is fine.

for updates:
- I selected 3x from the menu items
- I selected reticle zoom (other option is centered), this way it always zooms around the reticle
- I turned off all the display stuff like clock, wifi, etc
- I selected extended zoom, on the 3x the standard zoom goes from 3-12x and on extended it goes from 3-30x, seems to work well.

Make sure to go through the menu items one by one for the settings you want

Will test tonight in night mode, however on the V246 beta the brightness/contrast didn't appear any different from V228. Also, will test flicker tonight, on V246 beta the flicker was still in low light.

GPS is turned off in this version, will come on at a later time.

All in all ATN is getting there with firmware/scope functionality.

Kohj: remove the msd card. See if your device will boot. If so, go into setup and see what version it has you on.

There seems to be a glitch with some scopes with this update where the WiFi update does not install correctly.

Mine did same thing. Take the card out of the scope and take battery cover off. Then power back up it should say firmware updated. Word of caution, when I turned on WiFi under WiFi/GPS in the menu the scope went into an endless loop of ATN home screen then recticle and all keys are locked. The only way I got it to work was to manual power off, install .246 firmware then install .248 using above method and then not turn on WiFi. Everything else seems to work but no WiFi, I tried it twice and ended up in the same situation. I never use WiFi so I am not that concerned but others might be.
