New L1® power stand v1.3 Released

Version 1.3 fixes a rare issue with the power stand firmware update process. On earlier versions the power stand could be affected by two failed 'L1 model II Firmware' updates in a row.

We recommend upgrading from 'L1 model II Firmware' version 1.0.


Click here to download the new L1® power stand v.1.3 firmware.

This firmware will also be available on the Musicians site at www.bose.com in the weeks to come.



The latest firmware is available here:

Re: New L1® power stand v1.3 Released

Just an FYI from a Mac user.

The first download of this 1.3 ".bos" for the powerstand I did with Firefox, and the Updater application did not recognize the format. I used Safari to re-download the file and it was then 'recognized'.

The various browsers can have a number of "default" actions which might take place after a download, as well as differences in how the browsers set the 'file type' for an "unknown" file name extension, so it's a little difficult to tell what was different without a lot of further testing ... but I do know that we have similar issues with downloading "geocaching" information (works flawless with one browser but not the other).

MAC user:

After doing the update for the L1 to version 1.3, the "PS II Firmware: 1.0" still shows. It said the update was successful. Does PS II Firmware mean "L1 version? Did I do this right?

Hi djazz,

You need to power down the Power Stand, and then turn it on again before the T1® will show the correct version number for the PSII Firmware. This is the case with PCs and Macs.

Reference: Firmware Update Installation Note.

Re: New L1® power stand v1.3 Released

The web site is confusing as to the file date of the v1.3 update. It says the date is 2007/02/27. It should be 2008/04/09. Please fix that. The errant page is at http://toonz.ca/bose/wiki/index.php?title=L1%C2%AE_Mode...and_Firmware_Updates

Thanks

Hi RadicalDad,

Thanks for spotting that. I have changed the date to 2008/02/27 (the date of Neil's announcement at the top of this discussion).

Re: New L1® power stand v1.3 Released

HI. Adam here, just got my L1 a week or so ago. I had some intermitttentt problems and found the updater & BOS firmware updates.

I am on a g4 ibook (mac).

Hmmm - problem. The T1 firmware update ran fine. the L1 Updater APP screen showed the T1 firmware had been updated to1.6 no prob.


Yet, I ran the same process with th power stand firmware to upddate it to 1.3 and the L1 APP menu, after completed showed it as version 1.1.

I powered the T1 off, closed / relaunched teh L1 updater APP and did the PS firmware update again. Still shows uup thet 1.1 is the current version.

Anyone have advice or a similar experience?

Help. I go on the road tomorrow, and feel like this is a wobbly, but good sounding piece of gear.


Thank you.

Adam

Hi Adam,

In case you haven't done it already - please turn off the power on the Model II Power Stand. Then fire it up again and check the version. You will have to run the L1® Updater software again to see it.

It should be at 1.3.

You have to cycle the power for the new version number to be displayed.
