    Just finished updating the first part of the firmware on my FT2DR, said everything complete and when I went to turn on and finish I got a "firm error" any suggestions on a fix?

    "Bricked".

    Well, maybe not. Have you tried updating the software again?

    Does the firmware that you used match the radio hardware that you have ?

    Normally you can not just jump to the newest version, You need to do incremental updates.

    What is this update going to make better for your radio ?

    It is always best to backup the firmware before trying a update. Then you have a better chance of making a bricked radio work again.


    Good Luck.
