Constant USB Update Failures - Anyone Else
« on: February 15, 2020, 08:12:00 AM »
Basically my Prophet X refuses to update all OSes by USB.

After following the proper instructions - which I read every time because it never works - I attempt to update via USB and the the synth inevitably will not start up after reporting that it has successfully updated the firmware.

This time I waited 3 full minutes after it reported it was done and ready to be reset. Then I let it sit powered off for a full minute before turning it on.

Nothing.

A quick flash of the screens, then complete darkness with the sliders 1/2 lit and the mod wheels lit.

Now I have to go dig up the Sys EX update - again - like I have to do every time.

Am I the only person in the world that has to do this every single time?!

Gah. Same thing.
On restart nothing happens except a few lights and a glitchy readout on the effects screen.

Is there a sysex for 2.2 available?

Iíve submitted a support ticket linking to this thread.
