Installation Directions:

  1. If the ParaDyme is currently on a version older than 3.0.25494, then it will need to be upgraded in two steps. First upgrade to version 3.0.25494, then to the newest version.

Rescue Package Procedure:

In very rare cases, the system may fail to reboot after the installation of firmware from the User Display. If this should happen, a rescue USB disk needs to be created to get the system to reboot. First review the ParaDyme Rescue Package Procedure, then download the rescue disk (ParaDyme-v2.8-rescuedisk.zip (24 MB)) and follow the instructions. You will use the rescue disk to upgrade the Roof Module and then repeat the installation steps above to update to the latest firmware.
