Important Instructions when updating from v0.x or v1.1 to v1.2 and above
Since v1.2.80 introduced the dual boot feature, changes to the recovery/update partition were necessary. Therefore a special update procedure is needed when upgrading a pre v1.2 camera. If your camera has version 1.1.64 or earlier installed, please follow these steps:
- Download the update package: ATOM one SSM500 v1.2 Upgrade
- Extract the content of the zip archive to a FAT32 formatted SD card.
- Insert the SD card into the SSM500 and turn it on.
- The update is performed automatically, the device shuts down after it is completed, the process takes a few minutes.
- Remove the SD card and turn on the device.
- The device is now updated to v1.2.80 and runs in Trigger mode, you can now perform an update to a higher firmware version or switch to SSM mode using the "switch_mode" command.
Note: If your camera already has v1.2.80 or later installed, just install download and install the latest firmware version as described in the Reference Manual!
