            Upgrade Alerts

            Please read the following message carefully before upgrading!
            • Devices running firmware versions starting with 2.0.0 MUST be upgraded to the intermediate firmware version, 2.0.0-1244, BEFORE upgrading to versions starting with 2.0.1!

            • Devices running 2.0.1 CANNOT be downgraded to 2.0.0! Upgrading directly from versions prior to 2.0.0-1244 (e.g. 2.0.0-821) to 2.0.1 or downgrading from 2.0.1 to 2.0.0 will result in a device failure that will require special steps to recover! Please contact if you have any questions!
