never ending "warm up" after upgrade

    After I installed the newest version of the assistant software (v3) and upgraded the firmware on my phantom 2, it does not seem to work. When I turn the quad on, it goes into the red-green-yellow sequence as if warming up, but never gets beyond that point. It just keeps flashing that same sequence.

    Has anyone else had this happen? Any ideas about what I can try?

    When I do the advanced IMU calibration, it seems to go on for ever as well. I finally cut it off after two hours. As far as I can tell, that is the only thing to try with this light sequence.

    Anybody got any other ideas? I really want to get back into the air.

    Thanks in advance.

    The 3 color led could also mean the IMU abnormal data.
    Check the receiver type, sometime the upgrade changes that to the wrong one.

    Good luck

    SOLUTION: I uninstalled the assistent software, removed the DJI Prodocts folder, downloaded it again, and ran the advanced callibration and this time it ran and completed correctly. I tested the quad and it is back to normal. I actually think it's more stable than it was. I'm a happy guy. Because I deleted the whole folder, I will have to download the drivers if I ever need them again but that's not likely.

    Life is good.

    Thank you all for your suggestions.
