Firmware update confusion...

Postby rsirota » Sun Jun 28, 2015 12:46 am

Hi all...

I currently have a 645DF+ with IQ250 and was looking to update the firmware on the IQ250. However, I am getting conflicting advice different dealers.

Dealer One tells me that I should update my IQ to the latest firmware. In doing this I will get all of the benefits of the IQ3 series except the battery stuff. I will be using this with a 645DF+, not upgrading to XF yet...

Dealer Two says DO NOT upgrade the firmware...

Who do I trust!?!

Trust Phase One :-)

If you go here: ... mware.aspx

You will see there is a XF line and a DF+ line

In the XF line firmware is 2.02 for IQ250 and the release note states:'
If you are using your IQ1 or IQ2 range of digital backs on the Phase One 645DF+ it is not recommended to update to this firmware .

In the DF+ line the firmware is 1.05

We will release a firmware which is compatible for both platforms.
