So i was planning to download the latest and greatest firmware for my solo when i discovered the Open Solo 4 Dev firmware in the firmware section of Solex. So i started looking around here in the dev group for information on it, but found nothing, then the Solo discussion room and still nothing... so then i hopped onto peddals github where the Open Solo 3 firmware and directions were, and still nothing on OS4Dev.... so please someone tell me what is happening, i feel left out, lol!

Well my intent was to kinda soft-launch the dev version in the beta testing group. And more widely launch it as beta-1 when ArduCopter 4.0-beta begins in a week or two. But it seems people like to poke around in the firmware menu more than I thought. So the cat is kinda out of the bag in this forum. The link to the new Open Solo information is in my signature.

The many many many other people who did it without experiencing the problem you have would disagree with this sentiment. You are the only one this happened to, and it isn't a failure of the upgrade. You are welcome to not do it if you don't want to anymore. But I do not believe you are adequately informed enough to suggest others do or don't do it. There's only so much I can do over a forum, especially when the user I'm trying to help refuses to give straight answers to anything.

Just installed using Solex by following the instructions exactly as stated here;


No issues at all - 10 minutes and all done.

Thanks Matt - as ever - for all your hard work and support.

I have worked through the instructions and it worked without an issue. I had an issue when trying 3.7 after following the instructions and doing the copter first, this time with the controller first not a problem.

Great work.

If people are gonna freak out when they attempt an upgrade and it fails then maybe, uh i dont know..... Dont try the BETA. I get that we all want upgrades cause like who dosent want something better for free!? But if you plan to download a BETA, then plan on being a BETA tester! Meaning some junk may happen at any point in time, there for its your job to note the incident save the files and get em back to the people who can figure out what happened so we can come up with solutions and Officialy launch OS4! Moral of the story is, " You no want maybe problem, you wait with consumers, You want to use cutting edge maybe buggy tech and help it to evolve, maybe get Beta"

I just upgraded a stock Solo with OpenSolo 4-Dev, per the instructions and had ZERO issues. Given, I print off directions, read them twice before beginning, highlight important points and check each step off with a red check mark as they are completed... (A touch anal)

Works flawlessly. Just updated the Solo recovery partitions on the bird and controller and deleted the Solo app off my tablet. "To Infinity (400') and beyond!" Buzz Lightyear
