    Ming and his engineers have fixed the early JTK blocked by the audio voice. Now you can JTK instantly !

    *This is an control fw CPU app designed just for the CPU firmware,not alglo fw. This is not the original Laser Defender Alglo App. You will need to un-install your original TMG app,or download the CPU app on a different device. It will over ride your current app. Once the CPU firmware is updated, upload the TMG Defender app back on your device.

    Instructions :

    You can now update the new Control firmware,that allows you to early JTK during the audio voice now.

    Please follow the steps:

    1. Install the Control FW update APP:

    https://drive.google.com/uc?export=download&id=1iSGpHf5fgT1CVM_Q8m0oMg3bJ1F0L9ji


    2. Pin the reset button with a needle,or a staple on the side of the CPU,beside the DTA port for 2 seconds, until the red or orange LED lights up.

    3. Connect your device from the FW app, to the CPU by bluetooth,tapping the Off button in the bottom left to find your CPU name device. Select your CPU device to connect to it.

    4. Press the lower right button that says
    "CTUD"

    5. If the power button LED on your CPU button is green or orange, then choose V1.0, If it is blue, choose V3.0 FW.

    6. Select Start transferring and It will start to update. The CPU will power cycle by itself,after the update is completed.

    7. Done



    Thanks for being patient :)

    Great update! I was really surprised to hear Ming was able to do it with a software update after he'd said it was a hardware limitation. Either way, this is MUCH better now. :)

    Being an iOS user, I'm not familar with the Google Play store. Would I be able to use an Android tablet to download and the use the TMG Defender app to update as long as it had wifi or LTE?

    You do not even need the play store in this case. Download the APK file in the OP and copy it over to your tablet. Make sure your tablet has BLE (or whatever bluetooth TMG uses) Then install that APK and you're good to go!

    This is for the update. Yeah you can play store the main app unless your tablet is old/doesnt support it

    They changed the button codes in the new firmware. If you need JBV1 connectivity, you should wait for the next JBV1 update before updating your CPU.

    JBV1 is updated for new button status messages. I'll release an update tomorrow that works with either firmware. The bad news is that JTK from an app still has to wait on the voice alert to stop speaking. Only the hard buttons can JTK during voice alert. I'm hoping they can fix this next.

    Thanks Jag and the TMG team for the quick fix and update. Just updated my CPU and did a quick test, working spot on.
