Just let my UM3 update its firmware to 5.3; saw it dl, saw it check, saw it take 2 minutes updating firmware, then it restarted itself, I saw the logo, screen went dark, dial lit up, flicked 3-4 times, and then went solid, and that was 40 minutes ago. Tried turning the dial, nothing happens.

    I'd say give it a power-cycle (flip the power switch to OFF - wait a good 5 seconds and then back to ON)
    let us know it it boots up!

    The time it takes is dependent on what you had installed before, but it should definitely be done inside 15 minutes.

    Same situation here.

     

    Upon first update to 5.3 on my UM3 from 5.2.something, it reboots with a scary blank screen too.

     

    A power cycle boots the machine right up and it says firmware upgraded to 5.3 successfully but yet there is another newer version of 5.3.0 to upgrade!

     

    So, there it goes upgrading the firmware again....

     

    A nail biting minute of button blinking green and blue and..... it says new firmware available. Current 5.3, New 5.3.0.... Install or Ignore? Again?

     

    I've clicked on Install and it seems to go into a firmware install loop again unless you click on Ignore.

     

    The printer seems to work fine on 5.3.... and it's connected to Digital Factory. I'm happy for now.

     

    An update and feedback for those who are experiencing the same symptom and not sure what to do after.

    it's because the upload script removed the date pert of the filename as with the s-line releases, so we renamed so that it shows "5.3.0" in the update message instead of just "5.3".
    It it's the same FW in this case, I promise.
