Overview:
  • Date: 2020.01.10
  • Smart Controller Firmware: v01.00.0650
  • DJI GO 4 App: v4.3.28
  • DJI Pilot App: v1.6.1
  • DJI Assistant 2: DJI Assistant 2 For Mavic v2.0.10

What’s New?
  • Added QuickFly function. QuickFly can be enabled in settings. Once enabled, the remote controller automatically enters the camera view of DJI GO 4 after powering on if the remote controller is already paired with the aircraft.
  • Added SkyTalk. Go to DJI Lab under settings to enable. Once SkyTalk is enabled, the live view from the aircraft can be shared with friends via third-party social media apps.
  • Optimized the process of selecting the default storage location. Reduced the frequency with which the Smart Controller would restart.
  • Added audio recording during screen recording. Before recording the screen, go to sound under settings to disable or enable audio recording for screen recording.
  • Added electronic Quick Start Guide for Smart Controller.

Notes:
  • This firmware version contains important updates, and the Smart Controller can only be updated to this firmware version using DJI Assistant 2. Download the latest DJI Assistant 2, and follow the steps in the System Update section in the DJI Smart Controller User Manual. Download DJI Assistant 2 at https://www.dji.com/cn/mavic-2/info#downloads.
  • Contact DJI Support if the update fails several times.
  • Internet connection is required for SkyTalk.

Finally! It took a really, really, really long time for this to be released. Way too long. Hopefully Mavic 2 Zoom/Pro users can use DJI Pilot now?

Using a free online Chinese OCR and then putting that text into Google Translate gives the below.
So it appears likely this is the option to turn on the first feature listed in the release notes.

I *think* they've removed the P4Pv2 integration that was in the 0560 firmware beta.  I don't own a P4Pv2, but I had done some testing with a friend a while back during the beta program.  When I go look at the Aircraft Management screen in the settings, my friend's P4Pv2 is now showing an icon of an M2Z instead of the P4Pv2.

If I'm right, I don't understand why they didn't keep this integration.  It worked really well from my short experience, and I don't recall seeing anything negative from other beta testers.

With the re-release of the of the P4Pv2 in the past few days, it seems like this would have been a great opportunity to bolster that release.  Seems like a missed opportunity, doesn't it?

DJI !!! Include the support for Phantom 4 pro a.s.a.p. please!

DJI no longer seems to care what customers want.

The top priority is the fight against hackers who modify the firmware to unlock FCC in Europe or remove no-fly beans.
Such as the firmware c0.1.00.50.00 for the Phantom 4 pro v2.0.
The quality of the firmware doesn't matter.
The worst thing is that it is no longer possible to roll back to an older firmware version.
In the future, please avenge this once again if a serious error occurs in a new firmware.

Here is another Chinese language bug.  

How did this go through quality assurance and nobody catch 2 glaringly obvious text problems.

This one comes up with you turn the SkyTalk feature on in the DJI Lab settings.

I get another strange phenomenon. Let me know if you see it too.
I updated the SC through the onboard system update. It all appears to have gone smoothly, except after the update it still tells me my version is the old version and there's an update available.
Has anyone else encountered that?
I haven't tried updating through Assistant 2 yet.

Edit: I see now that it says it can only be updated with Assistant 2. Why does DJI embed a video showing both ways immediately after that note then?...
I'll try with Assistant 2 and let you know what happens.

Wasted over two hours trying to get this update loaded. First DJI Assistant 2 For Mavic would not recognize the Smart Controller. After about ten attempts and re-installing Assistant 2 software it finally decided to recognize the Smart Controller, didnt do anything different than the first 9 tries. Had the same problem with the Mavic 2 Pro when I tried to update the firmware on that (brand new). Now two hours in to the update process since the controller was recognized - gets to 99% and then says "update failed", it has done this about 6 times now and I have uploaded an error log each time. I have done probably hundreds of camera and lens firmware updates with Olympus and Sony equipment. This is my first DJI purchase and I must say I am not impressed.

Funny, I did a system update check and it said, I was on the latest version now, which for me is V01.00.0530. There was no new fw update pop-up. Even checked Assistant 2 for mavic and that also says I'm on current version.

Here is another Chinese language bug.  

How did this go through quality assurance and nobody catch 2 glaringly obvious text problems.

Probably that and other firmware issues.  Maybe the internals of our Smart Controllers are different.  I wonder if the .650 firmwares people have now will never be corrected?

Can we assume the update was initially intended for .530 to .650 and the people who see the update are from .560 beta to .650 that something  was written wrong in the coding that wasn't caught sooner?  Either the .530 people that update to .650 will have incomplete features or .560 to .650 will have incomplete features and/or undoable damage for future firmware updates?

Should've just rolled out .560 beta as Public firmware w/o allowing people to update to .650 until .560 was fully programmed in.  This is what happens when things aren't known to certain people in time.  The engineering team was working on P4PV2.0, Mavic Mini, Ronin-SC, Osmo 3, etc. firmwares that the Smart Controller was done improper.

We .530 who couldn't get the .560 beta in e-mail that have requested are probably saved?

When DJI fixes the firmware, I hope they ensure the support from .530 to .650 as most of the Smart Controller users aren't Beta.

Well something is wrong if it crashes.  Something deep.  If there was an Android update, Android depreciates certain codes that no longer work.  You have to have a min API package.  Maybe the new update demands more than what the Smart Controller can offer?  I hope they can catch this and modify 1 or more variables to ensure flight reliability.
I want to fly the new firmware

nothing crashes on mine, google play is not on the sc, its a dick about to get it on and working, some people have luck getting it to work, others don't, I was lucky and it worked for me until the update, no loss as I don't really need it.

DJI no longer seems to care what customers want.

By "hacking the software" you mean simply that those guys install a few software packages including an app that can send fake GPS data to other apps? This seems like kiddie stuff, not hacking. Plus.. its an utter stupidity to install all those extra bugs that come along with new packages. Installing unnecessary software only makes the Smart Controller more laggy and more prone to crash. Not a good idea from a pilote´s point of view.

The way to get to FCC mode in EU is hack the satellite system!
So the controller receives a REAL signal that positions it where you need.

It's done by simply sending a gps signal that is stronger than the one coming from the satellite system.
You can use transmission-capable SDR radios for this and there are software tools for creating a GPS positioning signal with desired coordinates for both linux and win.

So you can call this method hacking the satellite system, rather than hacking the Smart Controller.
You intercept the satellite systems performance not the smart controllers. The controller does everything it should - correctly - when switching the mode to FCC if it receives a different location coordinate.

I´m just pointing out, that if you claim that dji puts a lot of effort to fight with people installing software apps on SC, then it's kind of wasted effort, if you consider other more effective methods that can be used to switch the settings.

Updated from the non beta version using the computer all went well but it did corrupt the google services. I ended up resetting the controller and reinstalled google services. Everything works great in fact Pix4Dcapture works where in previous version it didn’t. Wish DJI would make GS pro available to android.

Smart Controller Update is back, with a new Android kernel from today. Sat Januar 11 15:42:27 Hongkong Time 2020
If you had the older version installed , use the Mavic Assistant and update again to get the new one.
