    I read somewhere (unofficial) that "v3.02 is impossible to cleanly come back from according to DJI"
    The title should say v3.02, not v3.0 as that one is reversible.

    Re: 3.00 firmware reversal

    Yes, this is easy to do.
    I don't know how clean it is but the reversal seems clean to me.

    Just get an older DJI assistant app.
    I keep 3.0 and 1.08 on my Mac and switch back and forth with out issue.

    Open the app for the software you want to use. So if you want 1.08 use assistant 1.08. Go to the update tab. Then "update" from 3.xx to whatever you want.
    Use that assistant software while you use that firmware.

    No I went form 3.0 to 1.08 I have not yet used 3.02.
    But DJI said it was impossible to go from 3.0 to a lower one as well so...

    Re: 3.00 firmware reversal

    I too have gone from v2.0 to v1.08 myself with no issues. From what I gather the main controller firmware v3.02 updates the central board firmware to v1.0.1.25 from v1.0.1.24 and that is where the problem lies. You may be right though, anybody willing to be a tester? :twisted:

    I reverted from 3.0 to 1.08 using the 1.08 assistant. I will have to look but there was only one update that occured. Whatever component held 3.0 now holds 1.08. No other firmware changed from what I received originally. It flies perfectly. Can't speak for 3.02 as I did not go to that. So whomever says you can't do it I beg to differ.

    I think I read it on the 3.02 update notes.

    Is this the Assistant for the Regular Phantom Vision? I checked DJI.com and all I saw was firmware 2.0? Does anyone know where to download 1.08?

    Your talking about 3.00 not 3.02. As I have stated I think there's a difference were you can reverse 3.02 but I would like to know for sure.

    You definitely CAN revert back to 1.08 from 3.0. I did it and am at 1.08 now and flying everyday. Key here is i did not update to 3.02 before going back to 1.08. What is unclear is can you revert from 3.02 to 1.08. Looks like 3.02 also packages another update that is incompatible with 1.08. Maybe. Hope this answers your question.

    What do you actually gain/lose by going from 3.0 to 1.08? Thanks for your assistance!

    I received my Vision+ the other day...set it up, charged the repeater, batteries, etc, and went for a test flight....everything worked flawlessly.

    When I connected the assistant to my P2V+ and logged in via email/ password, it immediately told me to upgrade...from 3.0 to 3.02

    I'm not too hip on the 2M maximum descent speed and some of the other issues...so I decided not to upgrade. These are what I get when I connect my P2V+ thru the P2V application:

    and thru the Vision+ application:

    I assume it's best for now NOT to upgrade? I already totaled my first P2 with an H3-2D....don't wanna crash this one!!

    Re: 3.00 firmware reversal

    The central board firmware is now up to 1.0.1.27 (though I don't see that listed on DJI's download section) :roll:
