Thread: Handheld will not update correctly.

  1. #1

    Default Handheld will not update correctly.

    Handheld will not update correctly. I've downloaded "Holley EFI V5 Build 171 Complete File Set", along with, "Holley EFI V5 3.5" Touch Screen Firmware" and extracted files copied to SD card, and handheld will upgrade by itself, but has now downgraded to V4, wipe card and re-download files 3 time now, and the same thing happens, go to Wizard, start GCF Wizard, get "folder not found" screen. Some help please have been working on this for a week now, nobody responds to my emails. Any help is appreciated. Thanks, Mike

    Are you sure you used the regular Terminator EFI software/ECU firmware (not the Terminator X EFI software/ECU firmware)?

    I just upgraded my system two nights ago from V4 to V5. No real issues, except if what I recall from Danny, you lose the 'Wizard' ability in V5. I got the no files found when trying to first use the Wizard. I then copied the V4 Wizard files to the new folder for grins, seemed to work, but when I went to save the tune it popped up a message saying something like V4 doesn't play well with V5, game over.

    Any resolution to this OP? I have a new Terminator Stealth all setup on a test bench. I upgraded the HP ECU no problem using a laptop. I downloaded the handheld contents file: "techlibrary_200r613a-2.zip", then formatted the SD card and copied the download contents. The handheld updated all three files, I removed the card, reinserted it, and the handheld still shows the V4 logo instead of the V5 logo. Same thing after a reset of the ignition.

    I found a Holley video where it shows to then go to Files>ECU HW/FW> and it shows my ECU firmware as correct, good so it can talk to the ECU. When I go to Local System info on the handheld it shows Device FW Version: 5.0.5 - Hmm, this seems right. Why does the handheld still show V4 instead of V5? Thanks!

    A bug I guess they just never cared to fix then, LOL. Oh well then. Maybe when they release an update to V6 that has new V6 handheld firmware, it will be fixed.
