"Cold Boot” your FLEX-6000 after upgrading the radio firmware.

Maybe a basic question but the "Cold Boot" procedure requires the PC to the power off as well, then do the "Cold Boot" procedure, to then power back on all afterwards ?

    The cold boot is the radio.

    You should always reboot the PC after upgrading the SmartSDR.

    OK Dave thanks.

    Yes to the cold boot is for the radio.

    So I will do the radio cold boot while reboot the PC after upgrading, with the PC power off.
