Are those the only fixes? Have any of the important issues from 1.2.6  been addressed?

I'd really like to know if the errors in the previous firmware are resolved too. Furthermore i'd like to know where I can find the firmware (it's not at the regular location yet) and how I can perform the mentioned downgrade.
Edit: software is now at the regular location

Hi There,
The same thing happened to mine. The continuous beep then all the lights stopped. I connected the iphone to the drone and it says it needs update and maybe i should check the 8 pin plate from the gimbal and the drone. There's a malfunction issue. The drone now does not recognize the gimbal. And on top of that the camera is shifted to the left.
I thought this update was going to resolve the jello effect problem on videos.

I switched it off just in case the drone gets more damaged. I tried formatting a few times and redoing the process but it doesnt seem to be working.

Will DJI GO overwrite the present Pilot app? If not, can you switch back and forth between DJI GO and Pilot app? Can GO be used on Phantoms that haven't been updated?

I'm getting tired of clearing alert messages that I need to update this and that.

I have been critical of DJI, born out of frustration and love for their Brand in equal amount.

That criticism of the 1.2.8 release was because I missed flying my drone so much having spent just 12 hours of flight, despite being a day one customer of the P3.

I see they have added the roll back to firmware.  This is a  direct response to customer requests.  Well done DJI.  I can't wait to fly again.

I have some of questions about the new firmware for the P3P. First, does it bring back functionality of SDK developed apps?

Secondly, I have 3 batteries. I understand that each battery requires a firmware update as well. How is that done. With version 1.2.6 if it was loaded already, it wouldn't let me run it again. I assume I have to run it three times, once with each battery inserted. Is this correct?

Lastly, what is the DJI Go app? Is it a replacement for the pilot app or is it just an app to help me install new Firmware?

I'm not sure what it does, as I am an Android user and I don't see a link to Android versions anyware.

When you do the firmware upgrade it will update the battery you have in, I just inserted the next battery and switched on the aircraft and it went through the upgrade to next battery automatically.

GO App?  How about video range transmission issues, give me back all the video channels, POI Circling, Follow-Me capability, Autonomous Way-point Navigation.  You should "GO" there.

Hi, I wonder if anyone has experienced this or has any ideas why
it's not working.

Installed items:
DJI Phantom 3 Professional
Phantom_3_Professional_Firmware_v1.3.20_en
Phantom 3 - HDMI Output Module (Pro/Adv)

Tablet is Nvidia Tegra Note 7
Mini HDMI2AV adapter
FatShark Predator V2
----

1) When I use the Note 7, HDMI2AV, and the Fatsharks
the complete video view is A-OK with the DJI Pilot App.

2) When I use the HDMI2AV and the Fatsharks only
plugged into the Phantom 3 - HDMI Output Module
there is NO VIDEO... just a blank screen?

Any thoughts or ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks for your time.

In the firmware update .pdf instructions, the solid red light means an error occurred.  Mine did the same thing about 5 minutes into the update.  I rebooted the aircraft and started over and I got the .txt 'success' file.  Are you sure you placed the .zip file in the root directory of your SD card?

No it didn't.  Apparently DJI focused on other things.  WTF?  I didn't even have any of the issues that this "update" addressed.  How about fixing the tilted horizon and VPN errors while in flight.

Yes, I've been reading reports that UF works with the new firmware which would confirm SDK functionality is enabled in the new download.

I'm just now installing the firmware and will test as well but all indications are that the SDK functionality is enabled in the release.

Hmm... something in your file has to be corrupted.  Sometimes when formatting SD cards, not all data is erased.  Maybe try a different microSD?

I just opened the box. Do I need to complete in order the 3 firmware upgrades that are shown on the site (with 2 controller upgrades), or do I just do the latest upgrade which would include all the other upgrades? OR should I do the second upgrade, the one with a similar upgrade for the controller, and wait to upgrade to the latest when the controller upgrade comes out?

Please remove the device restriction and just include a "recommended devices" or "not recommended devices" list.  It infuriates me that I own 4 ipads and have to fly on my tiny phone screen because the app isn't "compatible" with any of my ipads.

If I read correctly, you will need to complete the 1.2.8 firmware update first, as you have to have this version to be able to upgrade your RC to the version released today. However; when I updated 1.2.8 for my aircraft, my RC firmware was already current.  You can't go wrong doing both...
