    Hi All,

    Find a way to really downgrade your Phantom2 firmware without conflicts etc.
    If You are interested and having problems with the limitations DJI (Apple like) constraining you, i find out a solution.
    For me personaly, the latest software 3.08 is causing serious problems with lift limitations and also causes a couple of crashes (thanks DJI...) (see topic "Strange Behaviour")

    Before I can fully report, i have to make a testflight!!!, so be very carefull! (i'm not taking any responsibility!!! what so ever, OWN RISK!!!)

    step 1: You have to open your Phantom2
    step 2: Find your Naza controller
    step 3: Place the USB side forwards to You
    step 4: look at the controller pins
    step 5: connect the most 2 LEFT pins in the LEFT BOTTOM CORNER together (you will need a servo cable or something like that)
    step 6: start your current assistant software
    step 7: power up your Phantom2 (it will blink red with short beeps, if not, your bridge is incorrect, power down and look again)
    step 8: click Upgrade in your assistant software
    step 9: firmware maincontroller version indicates v 0.00 (if not, your bridge is incorrect, power down and check your bridge)
    step 10: DO NOT UPGRADE and close your current assistant software
    step 11: install, for example, assistant software v 1.08 (in my case, later versions are not allowing updates, perhaps only that version wich came with your brandnew Phantom2 are useable? dont know...)
    step 12: start assistant software 1.08 and downgrade!
    step 13: power down your Phantom2
    step 14: disconnect the bridge
    step 15: power up your Phantom2

    Look at the software versions, the are now downgraded to version 1.08!
    From here you can upgrade to the version you like!

    I will ASAP post here the link to download V1.08 assistant after i have made a succesfull testflight!
    To be continued!

    No apologies.

    You're a good person to share and to try and help others in this way. ;)

    Just saving you some effort if you'd rather use your time to Go Fly! :lol:

    Thanks Mate!
    But i have seen to many questions about this item, so proberly this will indeed a better help to find a solution fore some disapointed DJI pilots!
    If you don't reset your flight controller it will result in software conflicts, its not enough just downloading V1.08!
