ZerOS, the software running on FLX and FLX S, is regularly updated as a free update from the website.
- Once downloaded onto your computer, plug a USB drive into your computer.
- Copy the .exe file onto the USB drive
- Once the ZerOS software application is on the root of your USB drive, you can then plug your USB drive into the console.
- You will then be able to tap Setup -> Load, and choose the software application to load in.
Do not attempt to load "Phantom ZerOS" into the console. Phantom ZerOS is the Windows application which allows you to emulate a console running ZerOS on PC. It is not the software application for the console.
Always read the release notes prior to installing new software for important information, and handy tips.
Software updates completely wipe the console's memory. Ensure you have saved a copy of the current show file to a USB drive first, prior to installing the software.
Do not disconnect the USB stick or power during a software update. Doing so could render your console unusable.
After choosing the software file to load in, the console will ask to confirm you are happy to proceed with the installation, and wipe the current show from the console. The console will also warn you, that disconnecting power mid installation could render the console unusable. Click Yes to proceed, or No to allow you to save your show file first.
The console will then warn you a second time. There's no excuse for not realising your show will be lost!
Once loaded, you will be required to restart the console.
Upon rebooting, sometimes the console will state that a firmware update is required. This is because in some ZerOS software updates, a firmware update is included too. If this is the case, proceed with the firmware update, again ensuring the console's power will not be disconnected mid installation. Once complete, the console will be required to be power cycled. You will then boot into the newly installed software, and can reload your show file if required.
