Can't update firmware 2.10.1 on a new Theta V

Postby polystorm » 03 Mar 2018, 16:31

Just bought the Theta V 2 days ago and I tried updating the firmware on OS High Sierra, Windows 10 64 and iOS 11. The wheel on the desktop app spins for 6 minutes and eventually the blue light and camera icon on the unit goes off, then I get the message "Check the network connection". Nothing wrong with my network connection but I looks like the phone would go to sleep.

So I turned off sleep mode hoping this was the problem, but I tried updating the firmware again, and I STILL got the "Check the network connection".

This is ridiculous. No way to contact support outside of the US. The apps are UN-intuitive. I posted a nasty review on their facebook page and Kevin Camacho from Ricoh messaged me for my contact info. I sent him my email but it's been a day and haven't heard anything.

I had trouble updating the firmware via the Windows app (running Windows 10 64bit) but it worked flawlessly using the iphone app. Maybe try updating using the app on your phone?
