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
You probably left the USB stick in. Data Stored means your config file has been loaded.

Remove the config file or it will reload each time it starts.

No joy on USBs(tried multiple) CPU must not like them as I cant "WRITE TO USB" as a check., ALP Connect (iOS) /BT has updated 3 times, and still at old firmware. Will try ALP Connect Android next

Also if you have an HW1 unit it will not receive this update as its not needed. This update only affected TX Sensor configurations which is not supported in HW1 units.

No TX, but HW2

I'm having this exact same issues. ALP connect says new FW update available. Downloaded 4 times, and still on 558. Tried USB, and the CPU doesn't load it. I know it reads the USB Becuase the colours change, but it does not load the uodate from it.

Just have to keep waiting. Slow progress.

The update finally showed up in the app today for me. I tried installing it twice but it just transfers, restarts and says it's still on 5.5.8 and asks if I'd like to update again.

I recognize when threads get as long as this one (9 pages) most don't read front to back, but I think this is important to know @Jdem experience as I've observed he's very competent:


Personally I'm waiting for the next fw upgrade because of the potential issues with DE which is very prominent here, but to each their own.

Guys, is it safe to update to the new FW? Are the bugs fixed or should I wait? I've got the latest CPU and a Quint system.

Thanks - confirmed.

The latest and greatest offered and downloaded for my 2 x HW.1 CPU's is 5.5.8, hence no upgrade e-mail.

Safe ? i would say yes , cause you can roll back to 558.
My system had many hickups with downloaded 663(no email saying it is ready) so i revert to last fw of november 2019 , the solid 558.
My question : how can they improve an already potent system ?
I will wait for the email from Alp.
Good luck .

I'm curious, how do you 'kill it' after you've slowed down ?
I've got a kill switch that kills power to my jammers. It's just a 3 prong rocker switch with an LED on the on side. 0520200707.jpg 0520200707a.jpg

I'm just going to wait for the green light from you guys, after you've tested and the PTs are fixed.
