Updating firmware S5


Recommended Posts

Posted · Updating firmware S5

Hello,

I have a S5 with a firmware older than version 5.1.8.

I read the instructions on the website to upgrade to the new version 5.4.27.

Did I understand correctly that first I need a network connection to update to version 5.1.94 ?

There is no way to do the update directly from a USB ?

I have no possibility to connect the S5 to a network, so then I'm stuck with the old firmware ?

    It is, let's say, tricky.

    Maybe you on an old FW Version that need an Internet Connection to set the System Time, otherwise the verification failed.

    Thank you all for the reply's. I did the upgrade to 5.1.94 with the file1 and file2 links.

    And after upgraded without problems to 5.4.27. I just found the instructions a bit confusing, if it would say …. 

    OR if you are updating from firmware 5.1.8 or older, download both files below (.tar and .tar.sig) onto the root folder of your USB stick

    Thanks.
