● Do download the right firmware, otherwise, a wrong firmware you download from other places may make the problem more serious.

● Make sure the camera has at least 50% battery, or directly connect it to a power source to prevent the camera shutting off during the flashing process.

● The update/flash file must be copied to the TF card's root directory.

● Format the TF card before the flashing, and the card should have minimum 8GB storage. You'd better choose a good quality branded TF card.

● The flashing process usually takes minimum 3 minutes. Do not do any operation during the updating/flashing procedure.
