R20.50.09 FIRMWARE W SERIES WARNING

Postby d119 » Fri Aug 04, 2017 7:21 am

Please make this a sticky if possible.

PER MOTOROLA/MOL:

NOTE: DO NOT UPGRADE MOBILE RADIOS CONFIGURED WITH W-SERIES CONTROL HEADS TO R20.50.09. ALL W-SERIES CONTROL HEAD USERS REQUIRING AN UPGRADE (FIRMWARE ONLY, NOT FLASHPORT KEYS), PLEASE EMAIL REQUEST TO MICHELLE FISKE.

Not exactly sure what the deal is with this, but it sounds pretty serious as it was in all caps and red text on MOL.

Be careful guys.

I just had a W4 upgraded to 20.50.09... It was working fine before I converted it to an O5.

Correct, I saw no issues on the bench.
Kilgore: Smell that? You smell that?
Lance: What?
Kilgore: Napalm, son. Nothing in the world smells like that.
Kilgore: I love the smell of napalm in the morning. You know, one time we had a hill bombed, for 12 hours. When it was all over, I walked up. We didn't find one of 'em, not one stinkin' dink body. The smell, you know that gasoline smell, the whole hill. Smelled like... victory. Someday this war's gonna end...
