I downloaded the upgrade for SSDR v1.10.8. I installed the upgrade on the computer and restarted the PC.

I went through the upgrade process in the 6500. It restarted once and then turned back on. The power light is purple and the screen says "UPDATING SOFTWARE" and the progress bar on SSDR is 100%. it has been about 25 mins and nothing else has happened. Seems to be hung up?

Updating the firmware should only take 4-6 minutes at the most.  Occasionally the radio will not respond to a reboot command after a processor is updated.  This is not out of the ordinary.  If this happens, power cycling the radio will either (a) complete the upgrade or (b) rest the radio so that a subsequent upgrade of the firmware completes normally.
