Frequently Asked Questions:

What happens to my settings?

Nothing, this upgrade respects your existing settings, leaving them intact.

Are my logs safe?

Yes, the logs are stored in a separate module. They can only be erased at the RPB Factory.

Do I need to install anything?

No, the Utility runs as a standalone executable. Once you delete it, all traces are gone.

Can firmware upgrades damage my unit?

No, even if power is lost mid-way through the upgrade, you can still upgrade again later. However, once your existing application has been erased, your GX4 will not work until the upgrade is successful.

I received "verification failed", now what?

Do not power down. Try run the upgrade utility again. This is typically caused by an interference in the network. If you continue to have problems, please contact us.

My unit won't turn on anymore.

A previous attempt has failed. Install the upgrade using hotspot mode.

What port does the utility use?

UDP:6234. The Bootloader Utility only communicates with the specified IP address via UDP port 6234. No other connections to the network are made.
