critical bug horus

Post by mick a » 16 Nov 2019, 18:43

hi has anyone heard about this

2.3.2 SPECIAL RELEASE:

A critical bug affecting Horus emergency reboot has been found in 2.3.0 and 2.3.1. Depending on model configuration, the radio link may not always re-establish after an emergency reboot. This bug affects every model of Horus radio running 2.3.0, 2.3.1 or 2.3.2 nightlies (so X10/X10S/X12S/X10 Express, X10S Express). This special release 2.3.2 is made specifically to address this critical issue.

It is a re-release of 2.3.1 with this bug fixed. There is NO other changes compared to 2.3.1 than this Horus bug fix. While we urge any 2.3 Horus user to upgrade ASAP to this release, there is no reason for other radio users already on 2.3.1 to upgrade to 2.3.2.

Changes that have being made in 2.3.2 nightlies are NOT included in this release, and have been moved to 2.3.3 nightlies

It is quite easy Mick. Make sure that you have your radio type selected in the settings

Plug the usb lead into your transmitter with it turned off. In Companion, download the firmware.

Save the file to somewhere you can easily find it.

Write firmware to radio

thanks Cliff
that seems simple enough, i haven't got anything in companion at the moment , will it update
with new 2.3.2 when i open and ask to do
it still seems a shame you have to search for these things and neither opentx or frsky let you know.
makes me feel i have to check all the forums etc every time i go flying, because if i missed something could be a bug etc,
will try when get home
cheers mick

I start companion at least once a day if there are updates it will usually let you know. also, you can manually check by clicking on the help dropdown.

Surely it’s better to stay away from the ‘nightlies’ and just update on the major revisions? If your current software version is stable then stay put.
