    I have tried many times to update the Firmware on my Phantom 3 Advance. I keep getting a message that tells me the file is corrupt. Have tried multiple SD cards but it keeps telling me to update from DJ Phantom which I tried and tried. The firmware that I started out with was 1.2.8 on the drone and the radio controller is 1.1.0 But when I look the firmware on it now 1.2.1.06 Below is the error message I keep getting. Anyone got any ideas?

    Result: Corrupted.
    Firmware bin file is corrupted, download it again from the DJI offical website.

    Are you trying to update the FW on the P3 with the RC turned on?

    It looks like you have the older text files still on the SD card and the upgrade is adding to those text files. Format the SD card, extract the bin file to the SD card or extract it to your computer and copy it to the root directory of your formatted SD card.
    Do the update again on the aircraft. You will probably find that the upgrade is successful.
    Post that text file. It looks like the update was good from what I can see.

    delete all the text files and rerun it and I can compare them to my text files.

    Need some more information-- What kind of cell phone? Android or IOS (Apple) What is the model? Do you have the DJI GO APP installed? Latest version. Have you upgraded the firmware on your P3.. Need a lot more information on your setup and equipment to give you an answer.

    I hope this isn't stating the obvious - but - your text file says P3S - you're flying a P3A right? Are you 100% sure you have the right firmware file?

    Prior to the new firmware it might have been worth a try :D ...now that 2.7k is available for the P3A, not so much! :rolleyes:
