    I was upgrading my P3ADV with the Phantom 3 Advanced Firmware v1.4.0010
    All was working as usual. i heard the da da da da.
    After my Inspire 1 finished his upgrade to the latest firmware i should hear the daaaaaa da da telling me that the upgrade was done with success.
    But instead i heard a uninterupted daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
    see and listen here ... https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/32948187/P3ADV/MOV_0008.mp4
    i stopped the upgrade 5 minutes later.
    and saw a failed error in the txt file on the micro SD card. also telling me to power cycle and restart the upgrade. after 3 times having the same unintereupted daaaaaaaaaaaaaa. He did not give me any sound anymore.
    I checked the txt files and saw:

    Result: Success.

    A couple things...
    You say you did a P3A successfully? And the one that is failing is an Inspire 1? Posting in the P3 forum?

    Finally... Have a look at the log you posted, specifially: "Packet: P3S_FW_V01.04.0010.bin" I believe P3S indicates that this file is for a P3 Standard....

    What device are you upgrading and have you verified that you are using the correct file?
