    Did you reformat the sd card before downloading the firmware?. If you didn't, try formatting the card and downloading the firmware again.

    I had the same thing happen to me yesterday while trying to update. After the third attempt, I decided to just let it beep (and hoped it wasn't bricking). I noticed while it was beeping loudly like a smoke detector, the faint sounds of the original update tones could be heard. It was as though the unit was deleting the previous failed update while installing the new update at the same time. Beeped for about 8 minutes, then only the normal update tones remained. Checked the card afterwards, and it displayed "success". Flew perfectly.

    That is the M.O. for updating after a failure-- Some of the lads stick it in the closet and shut the door.:D:D
