Performing a firmware upgrade unnecessarily can damage your ActivBoard. The firmware upgrade should only be carried out on the advice of Promethean Technical Customer Support.
Firmware upgrades should be carried out using a computer that is connected directly to the interactive display device, bypassing any connection plates or wall boxes, using a 3m USB cable. If you are unsure about performing the firmware upgrade or which file to download, please contact Promethean Technical Customer Support.
