Software Updates

Anyone try out the 12/7/22 Simple Trace Software update? I don’t seem to have the prompt for the multisided polygon prompt that shows on Instagram. (see pic 1)

I confirmed that the update didn’t take by checking the version on the touchscreen. (pix 2 & 3)

Anyone have success? Thanks!

@bobplewajr I just did it and It worked just fine for me. I had to do it twice because I forgot to unzip the file the first time.

Good to know. Thanks. I’ll download again and try with a different USB drive to see if I can get it.

I got the software update to work. As expected it was user error on my behalf. When I extracted the zip file, I had the sub folders & files copied into another folder - not the ROOT DIRECTORY of the USB drive. As a result the Droid could not find the files, and the update couldn’t install. (I obviously forgot that this is how I did the first two update)

The new features are great! This thing keeps getting better & better.

I’d like to nominate Andrew for the Nobel Prize in the Field of Fabrications. :joy:

Anyone having trouble installing the January (1/11/23) updates?
I unzipped the compressed file to the root directory of a FAT 32 formatted, 16MB micro SD card. (see pic 1 folder and 6 files)

Inserted into ArcDroid while it was powered off. Turned on the Droid. For a second, the message “Busy processing, please wait…” pops up, and then the “Home” screen pops up.

When I check to see the latest versions, I still have the last updates recorded.

@Andrew any insight you can share is appreciated. BTW this is the same micro SD card I used for the previous (August) update. After several attempts, I reformatted the card, and still no progress.

Looks like the update download links were mixed up. Fixed now, try re-downloading them.

Simple Trace update for the pendant should be and the firmware for the machine should be

Hey Guys

Thank you both for the quick responses. Installed both updates w/no issues.
