    I have been doing update now for 20 minutes, beeping like mad.

    Camera twitching etc.

    How long does it take ?

    Same duration as the previous firmware updates. I'd start over.

    Yes

    After 25 minutes I power cycled. It took 30 seconds at most to redo.

    The app had crashed during update.

    Thanks

    A little frustrating, as it was chirping away to itself I thought this must be normal......

    Just to be clear, the beeping never stops. What happens is that the PC screen says to reboot the device once the firmware upgrade is complete, but the beeping still continues until you restart. Of course if the firmware fails, the beeping also continues.....but just wanted to make sure forum readers didn't think that the beep stops when the firmware update completes.

    I had on screen the application saying "doing update"
    Kept on showing that so thought it was ok !

    But after 10 minutes it kept doing it
    after 15 minutes it was getting very annoying
    after 20 well..
