Firmware update instructions

1. Once the correct FW file has been downloaded, unzip it to the root folder of a USB flash drive. Note: The "MstarUpgrade.bin" file cannot be contained within any folder in order for the update to work. USB Drive should also be in FAT32 format.


2. Insert USB thumb drive in front USB port (note: must use port with Android label)


3. Power on the panel and wait for it to boot up to an input screen. Then press the Input button on panel or remote.


4. While the input selection menu is being displayed, use the remote to enter the PIN code for accessing the service menu. The PIN code can be obtained from Recordex Technical Support by opening a support ticket Click Here


5. This will open a secret factory menu. Use arrow buttons on remote to select Upgrade Main, then press OK/Enter on remote, then select Confirm and press OK/Enter on remote again. Panel will apply changes and reboot.


NOTE: It may take up to 5 minutes for the panel to apply FW update. The power light will go from red to blue and blink blue during updates. The panel may reboot more than once. After it is finished updating it will go back to main input source screen
