I recently tried to update my JR XG8 to the latest firmware using a 128mb SD card from my spektrum dx8. I formatted the SD card and followed the video released by JR but mine was stucked in the "do not remove battery" screen for more than 30 mins. In the video it should take about a minute. I then decided to turn it on and off, until it died.

Anyone can help me with this one? any solution without sending to the manufacturer?

thanks a lot..

You will have to send it back and they will reload the software.

Low grade SD cards is most likely the reason why the upgrade hanged, JR recommends using their brand or a name brand high
quality SD cards only to avoid this issue.

Why don't you guys do a file compare on what you donwloaded vs. what you put on the SD card ? If you download and unpack it twice and compare those files AND then copy that to the SD and do another file compare, you pretty much are guaranteed to have correct bits.

Then if it bricks, you can blame the radio manufacturer. "Low grade" SD cards sounds like crap to me. Then there is the design question: Why is there not a bootstrap loader in the TX that can't be corrupted by a s/w update ?
