My app keeps telling me I need to login to my account eventually to remove the restrictions due to the new update etc. I've upgraded, sync'd flight logs it's all good to go but I don't know if that prompt means I need to do something else to remove the 50m flight restriction. Does anyone know why that still keeps popping up?

Maybe click on the me icon, and then the cog wheel in the upper left hand corner and sign out then back in? It's worth a shot. (I am using an iPhone so if you are using an android it may be different)..  Hope this works!

No problems here, either. OTA update of RC FW  and NFZs  via iPad. AC via DJ Assistant 2. Update worked perfectly, never lost contact with camera, even before updating the RC. Checked NFZs on map and no new impacts to where I fly.

Yesterday was first flight with the new firmware.  I flew for about 20 minutes, nothing out of the ordinary. Took 25 photos and none saved to the iPad. This is the only difference I've noticed so far.

I did this but it didn't seem to remove the message. I just flew about 1,000 feet away and everything seemed okay though. Maybe it will stop now, just trying to get it in order for a shoot this afternoon. Hopefully it's good to go.

Updated both Phantom 4 Pro+ and the controller and now there's no connection between the RC and the drone. Restarted everything and no luck. This is a major flaw obviously that makes the drone unusable. Please fix this ASAP!

have you tried manually re linking rc and ac?

Is this update OK to use? really scared to update as all I see is reports of issues and a friend just crashed his P4P today after updating

I suggest hold on to current update. 1.04.0602
had NO SIGNAL status , no camera, no stick functions. remote and ac are both on green LED.

Yep, worked OK for me using same process also. Had to force a re-linking of craft and RC a couple of times after rebooting each, but eventually OK.

I'm amazed that so many people here are complaining about lost video link. Don't people ever read the Release Notes first? It says:

Yes we did that. still no signal.

I would add another part of the problem:
I don't believe there is any accountability at DJI- in most places, such a disastrous release with new problems would force a reckoning for the project manager who authorized this to be released without enough (any) QA. At DJI, it just seems like their way of doing business. So it repeats.

Welcome  to bad live feed and no smart RTH toggle!

You need to kill the DJI Go app running on your table/phone, turn off the controller and Phantom.. Open the app back up and turn on the controller, do NOT go into the FLY NOW screen, stay on the first screen. It will advise you to update your controller firmware.. Update your controller firmware and start everything over again including the Phantom.. That fixed mine..

Yes we did that. still no signal.

And you've upgraded Both the firmware on your RC And the P4P?
If the link LED on your RC is flickering red/green and you've updated the P4P, then I believe that's telling you the RC still requires it's update. With the tablet/phone connected to your RC and DJI GO started, does any message appear on the initial home screen?
If both are updated, reboot both, and on the RC press C1+C2+Record (button on left corner as you're holding the RC). When it makes a D-D-D-D sound, use a paperclip (or whatever) to push in the link button on the P4P. That should do it - if not, then one of the firmware updates hasn't been completed.

The remote LED flash red / green when it is not updated and the drone is.....  the remote needs to be updated with the new FW and you will be okay. Leave the Phantom turned off and connect the remote to the Go 4 App and follow the update instructions

Restart everything and you will be okay

I do not believe they did this on purpose. DJI BladeStrike said he was passing the information along to get this fixed....  but then Thor said it was removed : ??   Not sure why they would want to take this away, a lot of folks use this feature

Actually Blade Strike said it was intentional and he was trying to get them to understand why they shouldn't have done it. They didn't take it away- they permanently turned it on and now you can't toggle it off.

Yah, I have been re-reading everything again. This is a huge mistake on their part. I really hope the put it back into the App and let the pilot make the choice

Sad to see some of these changes and I am afraid they will roll out some more once the Spark hits all of the newbie's hands

My last flight attempt was dismal.  I was 1.7 miles from an airport in Class D airspace, but I contacted the control tower and got permission to fly my drone.  The drone would not lift off and I spent an hour trying to shoot this site.  Got four 10-minute videos of my helipad and went through a battery and a half dinking around while my client watched.  Not the most professional display of competence I have had.  I also went onto DJI’s app, which has been recently updated with restrictions for airspace but it did not allow flights in Class D Airspace in any situation, even with control tower permission.  I attempted to override the warning and was sent a text message with a code, which I typed into the iPad, but was denied three times.  Any workaround for this?

Update stuck at 99% for well over half an hour now. Got a message to unplug cable and re-plug it in to update status, but to no avail. How long should this take? What should I do if it doesn't go to completion?

Me too.
I'm reluctant to halt the update though.

I have the same issues since I updated my P4P.  The aircraft is noisy now (whirring sound), and the gimble is pretty warm.  I DO believe my range is not as good anymore as well.  I have care refresh but I am not feeling comfortable going up knowing that something in the new firmware update isn't quite right.  I have only had my bird for 3 weeks now.  C'mon man...

Done all the updates as soon as they came out, had the usual crap like re linking and getting stuck at 99% etct, that was a week ago, yesterday was my first flight, I used 5 batteries of flight with no issues other than the wind warnings, also I tried the tripod mode but it gave me a warning saying I was near a no fly zone and the drone may just stop moving, I decided to exit the tripod mode, I flew to 120m high and 700m distance with no problems of loss of signal, I used 2.4

Updated my P4P to latest firmware when I record video the controller goes black then comes back on and then goes off and on until I restart drone (to stop recording video). Did factory reset on drone and controller and everything works good until I download latest firmware then screen goes black reboots controller when recording video. Taking pictures doesn't seem to create a problem,  Am back on older firmware and everything working OK what do I have to do to fix this problem?

Update:  After installation o=f the new Firmware; My bird is still noisier than normal but I have had zero problems in flight.  I went out to the desert and flew 11,400ft distance on 5.8ghz with a solid full-bar signal.  I could have kept going but 11,000 is a lot further than I would normally fly.  I'm happy again.
