Installed 2.5.1 and when I start the program the radio goes to a double red flash on the power button and reboots.

I did not do a reset, and it installed OK.  The Best Practices sheet make no mention of this & tells to do a Cold Boot.  A formal FLEX update/upgrade procedure is needed and should be included with the new s/w.
I did make the mistake of clicking on the pinned to toolbar SSDR icon I had for 2.4.9 which prompted me to "downgrade".  When I figured out the new s/w did not update the icon like some developers do, I unpinned 2.4.9 & pinned 2.5.1 & all was good.- Bob W8RMV
