I posted the following on Mavic Pilots forum and thought it might be relevant to members here who don’t visit there. Ever since I got a Smart Controller there have be issues and niggles with firmware and GO 4 update issues and here is another one - partially resolved.
I went to charge my SC today and I was notified there was an update to 1.00.0650.
I went ahead with download and install on the SC. Download was OK and update apparently OK except there was a update loop where I was repeatedly offered to update again. The update had NOT been carried out.
On reading the accompanying info regarding the features of the update the very last piece of info was that the update MUST BE DONE via SOFTWARE ASSISTANT and not via the SC itself.
Connected to laptop with Assistant V2.0.10 and attempted to update. Failed 3 times without clear indication of why. Uploaded a log to DJI.
Finally the update was successful despite seemingly to have stopped at 98% in Assistant. The SC now shows 1.00.0650 and 4.3.28 for GO 4. GO 4 is 4.3.29 on other platforms.
However matters do not end there! After update I attempted to connect via Assistant to the SC and no matter how I plug/unplug/restart and restart Assistant I cannot now connect to the SC any longer. I repeatedly get USB device unrecognised. This is on 2 separate laptops with Assistant 2.0.10 which is latest Windows version AFAIK.
So in a nutshell. Updated but longer can connect to the SC via Assistant and looks as though updates via SC itself are not possible.
