Constant Bootload Errors

If you find you are having the device reboot on it's own. There might be a bootloader or a firmware issue. You will need to load each file separately to the USB and leave the USB in the unit while it reboots. This will cause the device to load only the selected file. Start with the bootloader (A6.UPB) and folow the prompts. If the device still reboots, then remove A6.UPB from the USB and only load the firmware (C15G), following the prompts once more.

If you are still running into issues, please reach out to tech support.
