    UPDATE PROCEDURE

    Update procedure for PRO X console From G3.2.x to G3.4 with new Neutron NB expansion module attached.

    NB module is recognised. This will mean that on the initial update from G3.2.6 or earlier the following steps will be required for a one off update.

    1. Download the “.tar” update file for your console
    2. Copy the file into “DL1upgrades”, “DL2upgrades” or “DL3upgrades” for PRO1, PRO 2/2C or PRO X respectively
    3. Run the Updater for G3.4 via USB as normal
    4. Update full PRO X system from G3.2.x to G3.4
    5. Power cycle system twice (as per-normal)
    6. Run G3.4 updater via USB again
    7. Update IO Card to G3.4
    8. Power cycle system twice

    From this point The Neutron NB expansion module (a.k.a “IO Card”) should be recognised by both the PRO X system and the PRO X updater app (USB updater).

    Once the system has reached this point the whole system, including the Neutron NB expansion module, can be updated in the regular way with only one pass of the updater application.

    Update procedure for PRO1 and PRO2/2C consoles as well as PRO X system WITHOUT Neutron NB installed From G3.2.x to G3.4

    Regular update procedure using USB stick

    1. Download the “.tar” update file for your console
    2. Copy the file into “DL1upgrades”, “DL2upgrades” or “DL3upgrades” for PRO1, PRO2/2C or Pro X respectively
    3. Run the Updater for G3.4 via USB as normal
    4. Update full PRO X system from G3.2.x to G3.4
    5. Power cycle system twice (as per-normal)
