6500...Loading new 1.4, needed a firmware upgrade...went for a long time, I cycled pwr..OK?

Putting on 1.4 it requested a firmware upgrade

The firmware upgrade went ok then for over 1/2 hour the upgrade stayed on (Radio was green)

Am I OK or should I do something to start a firmware download again??


Thanks,

Lee

My Radio upgrade failed - ERROR PSH1V5-1.64 on the display.
Don't know what to do now - anybody have any suggestions on how to recover the
radio - all new to me so I am still learning.

If the SmartSDR start screen shows this...



...everything went well. The small "LED" goes from yellow to blue during the
update.

Yep.  I saw the light blue light on my 6300 during upgrade, as opposed to the purple it used to flash.  Working fine!

My 6500 upgrade icon stayed yellow for the longest time after the firmware upgrade and never seemed like it completed but I shut the software down and restarted and all is well.

It is a result of SmartSDR v1.3.8 sometimes not handing the request to reboot the radio properly after the firmware has been loaded, but not booted.
