Curious.

I wonder... Version 2.7.3 says "Fixed issue about that telemetry log does not work with T-FHSS". My TX is not a "WC" version and is not T-FHSS capable. Possibly this firmware version is only applicable to the WC.?.?

If you are trying to do it by downloading the files on a Mac, it won't work.
Only PC orientated now !

You were lucky for that mistake.

In other cases, the upgrade program don't take your error into account and you damage the TX, just turning your gadget in a piece of junk.

It can be done on a Mac but you have to get the right (3rd party) program to unzip the update file

Hi modtron. I contributed to a post on this topic with the info and I can’t remember for the life of me what site it was - been looking and can’t seem to find it. I thought it was RR but it’s not showing up in my previous posts.
I’m not 100% certain but it could have been Winzip. I haven’t owned a Windows computer for years and while it was temperamental at first I managed to find a way to update my 14 & 18MZ with my iMac (still need to borrow a Windows machine for CGY750/760 updates though - which is what I’m doing tomorrow). I’ll carry on searching...

Let's see if this works... I downloaded it, extracted it and uploaded it to my Dropbox account. You should be able to access it in the link below.

Very good.

Doing upgrade is always a thing to do with care.

It would be a pity to have a 18MZ paperweight...
