Highest firmware for 242-5112-210-GA?

Post by ee1993 » Wed Nov 13, 2013 3:08 pm

I have a 5100 model 242-5112-210-GA and was able to program it for CAP use and it works. Can I upgrade this to 1.18.15 and what, if any, would be the advantage?

Thanks

Yes you can upgrade that to 1.18.15.
Aside from the multitude of bug fixes/feature enhancements along the way one big change was around the 1.12.x line of code they did some tweaks and were able to improve Rx sensitivity around 3db on average (according to the release notes).
Sean Penn: Last year I went to Iraq. Before Team America showed up, it was a happy place. They had flowery meadows and rainbow skies, and rivers made of chocolate, where the children danced and laughed and played with gumdrop smiles.

Thanks,

I have not yet performed a firmware update. Do I use PCC or do I need a special loader? How safe is this?
