I have successfully flashed one XTS 2500 and two XTS 5000's with this firmware, and both uploaded without incident and the portables are running the firmware just fine so far. I have not tested it with any mobiles as I don't have access to any at the moment.

I have it running on several XTS 5000's and XTS 2500's without issue. Confirmed that UCM flash on XTS 5000 works with USB cable.

Was able to load 16 into my UHF Xtl and sync my 03 control head with no problems. My XTS 5k with no problems as well.

Wondering if I should take the plunge and try flashing my dash mount XTL2500... Last time I tried to flash it, it required a depot trip (R15.00.09).

Rule of thumb is there is no need to upgrade unless the firmware is adding a feature you need or fixing a bug that you need corrected. I know we all like to have the latest and greatest but don't take the chance of killing a perfectly good radio unless you NEED to upgrade the firmware.

Just my opinion.

And that is sage advice that I learned the hard way with the last upgrade. I think I'll just leave well enough alone on my XTL.
