P3 Advanced firmware upgrade issues.

I upgraded firmware (v1.11.20) on P3 Advanced drone, RC, batteries and IOS DJI Go App (v3.1.15). Result was a drone with yellow blinking LEDs and solid red LEDs and a solid “Red” LED by Linking button, RC had Red blinking status LED and IOS DJI Go App showing drone disconnected.  After spending countless hours reading DJI forum posts and watching YouTube videos and trying different things these are the results:
  
IOS DJI Go App: Scroll to the “DJI Advanced tab” Goes to the screen showing “how to connect” to drone page, pretty much stuck here.
  
P3 Advanced Drone: LEDs under the engines flashing “Green” and solid “Red”, LED by linking button solid “Green”.
  
RC: “Green” flashing Status LED.

  
RC will fire up the engines and move the camera (props removed from drone). App was originally running on an iPad Mini 2, I deleted app (cleared cache and data) and reinstalled did the same on an iPhone 8 Plus, with same end results.  I checked text file after install of firmware on P3A and it said “successful”. On subsequent reinstalls of firmware on drone I get the text file saying “firmware older or the same as installed on drone” or words to that effect. I tried linking RC to Drone using linking button, resetting RC, different iPhone cables, cabling RC to drone, relinking with RC cabled to drone (no DJIGo device). Basically a lot of what has been suggested here in the forum. IOS devices have the latest IOS installed.

  
Any ideas or suggestions? My last resort to install the previous firmware.  But I am trying to avoid that.  If I am successful in installing previous firmware, will there be issues using the IOS DJI Go App (v3.1.15)? Also is v1.10.0090 the previous version, I found  a link to this version in one of the posts in this forum?  I wasn't able to verify from DJI's website. Is there a link to access previous firmware releases?

Sorry about the long ramblinng post, just trying to provide as much information as I can.

  
Thanks in advance…

I tried downgrading the firmware to v. 1.10.90 and it failed. Below is the message written to the P3S_FW_RESULT_AB file:

========== 2014.01.01 00:00:12 remo-con disconnect======
Packet: P3S_FW_V01.10.0090.bin
Result: Abort.
The current firmware does not support downgrade. Use a different version of firmware to downgrade the target version.

did you unzip the file and install to the root of the sd card?

Yes, the firmware has a .bin extension and the 3S_FW_DEBUG has no .txt extension. The root contains these two files and an DCIM empty folder.

Sir, the current firmware does not support to downgrade. I would recommend you to remove the SD card and re-plug the pins on the side of the gimbal.

Ok, not sure this will help, but I the way I understand it, if you have the later firmware installed, it will not allow you to roll back like we used to be able to. Here is a link to a website that claims to have a procedure to do that. I have not tried it. I have a P3A but have remained back on firmware 1.09 for a number of reasons, but have kept this link in case I would upgrade and have trouble.
