What is the current version of the firmware?
The current firmware version is 2.16.
The new firmware version of 2.23 is available as of this morning.
The direct download link to the firmware update can be found here:
The software had difficulty moving forward after I connected my USB cable. This is probally because it takes a few moments for the MiFi to shutdown its broadcast before it will accept the update and I was too hasty. I left my USB Cable plugged into my laptop and relaunched the installation and was successful on my 2nd attempt. The whole process took around 10 minutes to complete.
A few changes I have noticed on the new firmware:
1. It looks like the "Global" setting under WWAN preferred mode has been reworded. Now the option displays as "LTE/CDMA"
2. The Firmware Update button on the home page is no longer available. There appears to be a new Software Update page tucked under the Advanced menu to replace this feature.
Have updated two units so far. One is in the field and has reported having no issues. Hopefully all our complaining has finally paid off!!!
Lovely. Just updated and now it won't connect to the network. Reset to factory defaults and nothing. Even gotta new SIM card.
This update managed to "brick" my device as well.
My device shows a 4 bar/ -50 RSSI EVDO signal available, but will not connect to it.
The diagnostics page simply says "EVDO connection failed" whenever I attempt to connect.
Guess I have a replacement 4510L on the way overnight courtesy of Verizon's tech support.
Downloaded and installed the update last night - I'll be cautiously optimistic and say it looks like it might have solved the disconnection issue. I have remained connected all day today (so far)... it also seems to have fixed the time issue - the clock is now correct instead of being in a time zone many miles west of the Pacific coast!
It installed fine for me ...
I'm bricked too. I wonder if it's a particular update host? I updated from a Mac, did the others that brick also use the Mac update? Did those that work use a PC?
There are others over on the EVDOforums with the same problem. I had to have my ticket escalated to Verizon network support...which can take 2-3 days for a response. Level 2 tech support guy said they weren't even notified of 2.23 udapte.
