Suppose you have manually downloaded an .IMG file to a memory stick (FAT32 or NTFS formatted) from an authorized Bluesound Professional Support source - you can copy it to the root directory of a USB device and upgrade the firmware without connecting the Player to the network.
To manually upgrade the firmware using a USB stick, perform the following steps:
- Disconnect the power cord of the Player from the power socket.
- Insert the USB device into the USB port of the Player.
- Press and hold the Reset button* (on the back panel) when reconnecting the power cord to the power socket.
- Continue pressing the Reset button for 5 seconds after Status Indicator LED turns Red.
The Player now reboots, initiates the upgrade, and loads the software. No further user interaction is required.
During the upgrade, the Player’s Status Indicator LED blinks an alternating pattern of Green and Red.
After the upgrade, the Player reboots and resumes standard functionality and then remove the USB stick.
*Note: On BP125/BSP200, the Reset button is located under the rubber stopper.
