Good God, I still can't download 5.6.3! Why do you predict that? Just curious.
Because of what you just said. There are a lot of problems with 5.6.3 for some ALP customers. This current update doesn't seem right. I don't know why some can upgrade no problem, and other customers can't. I'm going to reach out to Alex tomorrow and see if he can contact ALP for his Canadian members that can't do the current upgrade. I thought @BestRadarDetectors would have updated us with more info. by now too.

When the thread for the update came out I was able to download it right away and install with no issues. To this day I have still not received an email regarding the update.

We have been out of commission since Tuesday morning. The tropical storm caused us to loose power and all communication. (No Internet , Phones, TV, Etc) Power was just restored last night. We will followup on this on Monday.

Forgot about that part. No email for me either.

I just sent out an email to Alex asking for some help for his Canadian customers. Between him and Tom, all of us should have an update in the next week or so. Not a big issue, just one that needs to be looked at.

Never got the email either. Will have to wait and try the update once we get the Jeep back from the body shop, HOPEFULLY by the middle or end of next week.

Here's the reply I got back from Alex today.

"Hi,



I’ve yet to try this update myself. I’m aware of this update from ALPupdate but I did not receive distributor notice just yet.



I wonder if this is CPU generation / hardware specific.



I’ll check into this next week."

I guess we wait.

Just one more anecdote / data point: was able to update firmware via USB successfully this morning. HW4 CPU.

I am not sure what email you guys are referring to. My ALP is registered. I have never gotten an email about an update.

Every time I start my ALP's I get a "data stored" audible. It's like the update started, but didn't finish all the way. Still says 5.5.8
