    So I just got my p3s today, and (stupidly) decided to update the firmware. At 50% it fails every time and now it will continuously beep loudly while powered on. I know there are other posts about this, but I couldn't find any way to solve it (from the posts)
    Any ideas?

    I waited until it said firmware update failed on the app.

    That's EXACTLY what happened to me.

    Search advanced,

    and keywords firmware, I mostly focus on firmware causing remote quality issues.
    Got's to Go.

    It failed multiple times on my iPhone 5s and an older iPad. After installing and deleting the app multiple times, the option to update popped up. It paused several times, but eventually made it through the whole thing (downloaded to the phone, and then to the phone)

    Basically, I just deleted and reinstalled the app multiple times, kept trying to update the former when it told me to. Eventually, that worked.
