Firmware Upgrade Problem   

Postby rusindaniel » Sun Dec 12, 2010 11:57 pm

Hello,
I just got the WD TV Live Plus and I’m having firmware upgrade issues.
Current firmware: 1.03.49_B
P/N: WDBABX0000NBK-00

My device can’t find the firmware upgrade files from my 8GB Flash Drive.
I downloaded 1.01.77_B-RAD.CC_WDLXTV_G2-0.4.1.9-6
I formatted the drive with FAT32 and copied wdtvhd.bin and wdtvhd.ver files to the USB drive.
Powered off the media player, plugged in the USB flash drive and don’t get any firmware upgrade option.
I have also modified the wdtvhd.ver file with the following:
VERSION='1.20.04.WDLXTV_G2-0.4.1.9-6'
LOCATION='wdtvhd.bin'
Any ideas on why my player does not see the firmware?
To start I just want the device to be stable and play movies from a USB hard drive with the super cool movie covers created by ThumbGen.
Thanks
Dan

You can't flash a WDTV Live Plus with a WDTV G2 HD player firmware. These are different devices.

Please take a look into the right forum, download the package for your device and repeat the steps ;)

Indeed, read the instructions README before flashing ANY device (computer, gps, car, hifi, ... ), so why not reading the README included in the wdlxtv? People invest tons of time to create not only the firmware, but also the READMEs. Use them! You can easily brick your device if not following these instructions carefully! :shock:
