I have had previous updates of DJI Fly and aircraft firmware "brick" my drone; it took some effort to roll back to a working version of that firmware, as the DJI Assistant 2 app didn't support rollback from the new version, meaning my Mavic Air 2 was dead in the water, unflyable. It took some hacking to be able to install the previous, working, firmware. I am therefore very cautious about installing updates, now.

"Fixed some bugs" does NOT cut it as an update description, at ALL. It sounds like a childs description of an update, or a total amateur/hobbyist developer, not a major engineering company. If *we* have an issue, you require us to report it precisely, otherwise you will ignore it. Your engineers work from specific reports of specific issues, and fix them. You know what the fixes included in each release are; you HAVE to tell users so they can make informed choices, given that each and every update puts the ability to fly at risk - it has happened to me before, and will happen again.

For instance, in the previous release (1.5.1 1980-official), the DJI Fly app on startup on my Samsung S21/Android 12 would, every time, "blink", then show "Initializing resources..." and require me to log in every single time before I could fly, when previous versions remembered the login. In this release, that is now fixed. Your engineers specifically worked on that issue, and 100% guaranteed they work from some defect management software. How hard would it be to extract the list the defects actually fixed in the release notes? Not that hard at all.

Please INFORM your users; you have got a lot of bad press for the botched launch of the Mavic 3 - take some lessons, please. An informed user is a less-unhappy user. "Fixed some bugs" and expecting us to blindly update on that information is insulting.

Fixed some bugs - not very informative but I had shutter lag and app restart mid-air issue with 1.4.12 and 1.5.1 (1980) app, would it be the one of those bugs...?

Getting hard to keep up with these monthly Firmware updates.  Glad "fixed some bugs" is such a very informative description of what the update includes!  I haven't flown since the November update, should I just hold off till the January update comes out with "Fixed all the bugs" as the description?

It seems that DJI assistant 2 for Mavic cannot see the firmware when connected to the Mavic Air 2 remote controller.  I get the Cannot Load Firmware List. Please Retry. message.
It does work for the Mavic Air 2 aircraft however.
I had to change to the DJI Assistant (Consumer Drone Series) as hinted in the video notes above.
It is a pity that the supported products list in the download centre sugests that the Assistant 2 for Mavic is the correct version for the Air 2. Under the Assistant for consumer drone series the supported products does not include the Air 2.

How about fixing at least the Supported products lists please DJI!
Or better still make the Assistant 2 Mavic version work with the Mavic controller.

Well, the reply of fixed some bugs is the lazy way of saying we aren't going to tell you? or is it that you guys are not aware of what you actually fixed/broke new from release to release?

You guys are not a small company that is putting out updates for a couple of hundred users.  Start doing this right or stop doing it at all!!!!  Currently, this is a damn joke!!!!

I downloaded it no problem.  Didnt check settings carefully enough and had some surprises.  Defaulted to FPV view and a few others.  Worked fine, just check all your settings b4 flight.

Before switching to Air2s.. I had the Mavic mini.  Right before I sold it.. There was an update. Fixed some bugs.. After I did the update.. The drone flew like crap. Twitchy, wasn’t a stable .. I think they did that to the original mini.. Just so people would upgrade.

I am not here to blow smoke up anyones dupa, but owned an original Mini and now this Air 2 for 9 months and I have never had an upgrade brick  the drone and have always updated using the drone connected to the controller with iPhone on Wi-Fi.  From all I’ve seen on these forums for the last 1.5 years or so, it seems most posts with problems are not iPhone users.  I purchase a dedicated iPhone 11 max (no SIM) to use with my drones. When flying I tether to my Verizon iPhone via the hotspot for the maps.  All works great.

Spot on! Why is it, that when someone posts a «smooching», DJI comes back within no time to “thank for the valuable support” but will not reply on inconvenient questions?
Sorry to say this, but DJI’s update policy for app’s and firmware’s is “the bottom of the barrel”.

Hi all,

How to downgrade firmware please?

I saw a note that explained DJI Assistant 2 can show you a list of firmware versions, but when I fired my Air 2 up today I noticed there aren't any older firmware versions listed, just this version to upgrade to.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions..

If DJI informs exactly what has been repaired, it runs the risk of lawsuits from all those who lost their drones.

I would agree that defining "fixed bugs" is lackluster for a tech company. I worked with many industrial PLC companies over my time and when upgrades came out they listed "Release Notes" Fixed issues with a full description of the issue and open issues. You could then decide if any fixes are beneficial to your application or just pass on the upgrade and stay with what works. At times when upgrading I found that the upgrade caused irreversible damage to the code rendering a looooong night of keyboard pounding.

DJI needs to send out detailed release notes so the consumer can decide, do I or do I not upgrade. Not wait to see IF the upgrade causes more issues then what it was worth.
What is really concerning is the fact that DJI representative hasn't replied to any of the aforementioned posts. Is that how this works? Answers are only given if they want to? Don't answer and maybe they will go away?
Answering the consumer questions is appropriate.

It is the asian cultural behavior. If they would show their faults, they would loose their face.
So they will never do. And they just don't care.

I also agree 100%.  Just telling users that you (DJI) fixed bugs means you either have poor software engineering practices and/or you are afraid of what your users reactions will be if you provided a more detailed change log.

I updated to the new firmware and the new controller firmware, all works just fine.  I have been through 2 DJI drones and multiple firmware updates and have NEVER had a problem.  Only use iPhones with the controllers.
