The Bose Community Forum was launched at a time when robust online support was not available for Bose customers. Over the past several years we have added new online service channels that provide a more interactive and complete digital experience. Additionally, we have enhanced the My Bose Account capabilities to deliver a more personalized and self-service experience. As a result, Bose has made the decision to close Community Forum for Consumer electronics products on September 30th. The Bose Pro portion of the Community will still operate as usual.


Please visit our support homepage to experience one of our many other digital service channels or simply use your Community log-in credentials to sign in to your My Bose Account to view your orders and view support options.


Thank you to all who have contributed and benefited from interacting in our Community. We look forward to continuing to serve you online.

Cannot Perform Firmware Update on S1 Pro

Hello, 

I am attempting to update my Bose S1 Pro firmware, but cannot get the speaker to pair with the Bose Connect App on both Android/iOS, as well as the Bose Updater via Windows 10. 

Have already performed the following prior to this posting:

-No physical damage

-In use with no issues for over 1 year, purchased new

-Fully charged and plugged into AC

-Performed Bluetooth pair list clear by holding down pair button for over 10 seconds, was successful

-Connected with two different USB cables to Windows 10, drivers reinstalled multiple times

-Bose updater application reinstalled multiple times (restarts performed on win10 after every reinstall)

-Attempted different Windows 10 PC

 

Same outcome:

Bose Updater and Bose Connect App will not find the device to perform firmware updates.

 

I am going to pull the battery after posting this to perform full reset, deleting this post if successful (fingers crossed!)

 

Any info would be appreciated! I use this speaker daily and would love the auto-off feature as included on the most recent update.

 

Thanks in advance!

-Biz

Re: Cannot Perform Firmware Update on S1 Pro

Hi BiZ,

Welcome to the forum! Thanks for posting, sorry to see you're having this problem with the S1 Pro.

With the thorough troubleshooting steps taken here, it looks as if there could be an issue with the service port on your system. To try getting the S1 Pro to appear in the Bose Connect app, I recommend trying the following steps:

  1. Remove the S1 Pro from your mobile device's Bluetooth paired list.
  2. Press and hold the Bluetooth button on the S1 Pro for 10 seconds to clear its Bluetooth list.
  3. Open the Bose Connect app and establish a new Bluetooth connection to the S1 Pro from within the app.

Firmware updates on the S1 Pro can also be performed as part of the repair service. If the steps above are unsuccessful, I advise contacting the Bose support team to discuss service options.

Hope this helps!

Re: Cannot Perform Firmware Update on S1 Pro

I am having the same exact issue and performed all of the same tasks as Biz did.  Still no connection.  Was there a resolution to this problem?

Re: Cannot Perform Firmware Update on S1 Pro

I bought two S1 Pro, the first was 2 years ago and it will not update. My new one was fine but unfortunately I cannot stereo pair both with Bluetooth because of this. I bought one Bose L1 1000 watt sub and was amazed.

Re: Cannot Perform Firmware Update on S1 Pro

Hi Dr Kris,

Welcome to the forum, thanks for stopping by! Sorry to hear you're having trouble updating your S1 Pro system. 

If updating in the Bose Connect app has been unsuccessful, have you tried using the Bose Bluetooth Device Update to update the firmware via USB?

Re: Cannot Perform Firmware Update on S1 Pro

This might sound dumb, but I thought I'd post it just in case. 

 

I couldn't connect my s1 to the app to update. I'd never hard the problem before. 

 

Come to find out, I had the switch  in the fast charge position, so when I "turned it on" I was really just putting it in off position. Once I turned the switch to the on position,  the s1 icon appeared and was able to connect. 

 

Not my brightest moment 😁
