First and foremost you have to be registered with their site and have your radio's serial number registered with your log in.

Here: https://community.spektrumrc.com/

If you've done all that then you just have to download the update file on their website after you've logged in.

You put your SD card in your computer and then just drop the downloaded file onto the SD card. Then you put the card back into the DX8 and turn it on. If you don't already have the update file, the DX8 will take care of updating. If you already have it, the DX8 will just boot like normal.

An important thing to note is that when you download the file from Spektrum you CANNOT change the name to anything but the file name that it comes with. If you change the name, it will not work.

When you log in there is a large orange button that says "updates"

Click on that and it takes you to another page and the first tab which is already selected says "AirWare Software Updates"

The latest version, the one listed at the top is 2.04. Under that heading there is another large orange "Updates" button which you click and that will begin the download process. It will either ask you where to save it or if you have a default place on your computer (your own settings) it will download it there instead.

So TECO did you get it figured out? Is it possible you can let us know what you did to get it working? Possibly someone else will have the same issue and can apply this situation to save some effort down the road somewhere.

Ok Thanks.So I guess it was a problem in understanding how to navigate at the community.The current version is actually 2.04 instead of 2.4.
Your good to go.
