Default Demo Folder - Firmware Upgrade..

On the CD is a demo Folder.

In this folder is a file

Well curiosity got the best of me.

I copied this file to the Stiletto's Data directory.

The stiletto went though a LONG series of the following screens


Verifying Files


After it does this, it said to power off.

I powered it off then back on. Not much.

I think it could possible be a demo of something, but we need to press some series of keys.

I plugged the s50 back into my computer then something happened.

I got this message.

I said ok then this happened.

Then This happened.

Then the process of downloading, verifiying updating and reboot happend again on my stiletto. All in all about a 1/2 hour of time.

I'm not sure what is going on here, but I think the demo file might be an older version of the firmware. Once connected the MSS software detected this and upgraded it to the latest. I did not get to look at version in the menu system. I might try it again and get some more details.

Well it looks like I've upgraded or rather restored.

BTW. My radio still works...

I'm starting to have some fun!

hemanrulez is on a distinguished road

interesting, from what I've learnt the software is automatic OTA upgrading.
This might be a restore "get out of jail" card if you screw up and Sirius cannot send you anything over the air
