    Hi guys,
    once again I am in big dodo. My only hope is one of you would answer. DJI web site does not help with anything.

    I just installed iOSD mini and transmitter on my phantom 2 - as instructed by That HPIGuy video
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TL8pqtEDuos

    it works, green light on iosd blinks (data transmission), I can see signal on my monitor.
    But it says clearly I should update firmware using iosd mini software assistant.

    I have newest firmware for all stuff, to be clear - except for iosd. I installed iosd software assistant, but it does not see my iosd unit at all. and I see on dji wiki I should install driver and assistant for iosd mini. but there is no driver visible for download anywhere! they have such a mess on their site, so maybe I am missing something.

    if you know something about it, please help. a bit upsetting to invest $250 in upgrade, and not being able to run a basic firmware update which is stated as necessary.

    Thanks a lot!

    Yes, I did. I did calibration, all firmware upgrades it asked, all seems ok. but when I open iiosd assistant, it does not see it.
    And when I start phantom assistant, it shows me message I should update iosd using iosd assistant. but I can't.

    Did you plug in your iosd mini into your computer? it has its own usb port, that is the only way to update it.

    You're not an idiot. I had the same problem for a minute or so. I sat here thinking, WTF? Then I suddenly noticed the USB port on the iOSD-mini and thought, "I wonder!" ... :idea:... et voila!
