EDIT!

Note: If you have multiple batteries, keep the firmware on the SD. There IS a battery update so make sure to insert all batteries in one by one when updating the firmare to make sure all are nice and updated

I have a brand new battery that I have not flown with so will check with that later today..

How to Update the Firmware
Follow the process described below to upgrade the aircraft, remote controller and battery firmware.
Updating the Aircraft Firmware
Step 1- Check Battery and SD Card Capacity
Ensure the Intelligent Flight Battery has at least 50% power and there is at least 100 MB of free space on the SD card.
Step 2- Prepare the Firmware Update Package
1. Download the firmware update package from the official DJI website (http://www.dji.com/product/phantom-3/download).
2. Insert the SD card into your PC. Extract the all downloaded files into the root directory of the SD card. Remove the SD card from your PC.
Ensure the aircraft is powered off then insert the SD card into the SD card slot on the camera.
Step 3- Update the Aircraft
1. Ensure the remote controller is powered off and then power on the aircraft. Upgrade will begin automatically after aircraft is powered on.
2. It will take approximately 25 minutes to complete the firmware update. The camera status indicator will blink green and red to indicate the
upgrade is in progress and stop blinking when the update is complete with success.
3. Check the upgrade status by opening the “.txt” file that is automatically generated after the update. The update is successful if the text “result:
successful” is in the document. Try upgrading the firmware again if the text “result: failed” is found or the camera status indicator shows solid red.
Updating the Remote Controller Firmware

Ensure the DJI GO app has been updated to v1.2.0 before updating the remote controller. The System Status bar in Camera View of the
DJI GO App will flash several times if a firmware update is available. Follow these steps to update the firmware via the DJI GO App.

Step 1- Check Battery and SD Card Capacity
1. The remote controller has at least 50% battery level.
2. Your mobile device is able to access the internet.
3. There is at least 30 MB of free space on your mobile device.

Step 2- Download and Update the Firmware
1. Go to the DJI GO App > Camera View > System Status bar > Overall Status. Tap Download the firmware update package to download and
update the firmware. Track the update progress from progress bar in the DJI GO App. The status LED on the remote controller will blink
blue during update and blink green when update is complete with success.
Firmware update through the DJI GO app will not work with older versions of the remote controller firmware. If the firmware update fails, follow
the instructions below to update the firmware using the traditional method:
a. Update the latest firmware package files from DJI official web site.
b. Extract all downloaded files into the root directory of an SD card or USB flash drive.
c. Turn off the remote controller, Insert the SD card into a SD card reader or the USB disk onto the remote controller USB port when remote
controller is turned off.
d. Power on the remote controller and wait 60 seconds until the upgrade begins. Do not power off the remote controller during the update.
e. It will take approximately 10 minutes to complete the firmware update. The camera will sound a beeping sound and the Status LED on the
remote controller shows solid blue to indicate the update is in progress. The Status LED on remote controller shows solid green and beeping
sound will stop if the upgrade is completed with success.
f . If you do not have a SD card reader, you may insert the SD card into the gimbal and connect the gimbal with remote controller to upgrade
the remote controller.

You will only be able to update the remote controller firmware through the DJI GO app from this point onwards.

Updating Intelligent Flight Battery Firmware

The Intelligent Flight Battery is upgraded during the aircraft firmware upgrade process. It is recommended to keep the upgrade
package files in your SD card. The upgrade will start automatically after power cycling the aircraft.
Ensure there is only one firmware package file stored on your SD card.

Only storage devices that are formatted for FAT32 and exFAT file systems are supported for aircraft and remote controller firmware
updates.

Ensure the internet connection of your mobile device is stable when downloading the firmware update package.
Turn on Airplane Mode on your mobile device before updating the firmware, as any incoming calls may disrupt the update process.
Do not perform firmware update while the aircraft is still flying in the air. Only carry out firmware update when the aircraft is landed.
Be sure to update the remote controller’s firmware to the latest version after you upgrade the aircraft’s firmware.
The remote controller may become unlinked from the aircraft after updating. Re-link the remote controller and aircraft.
Confirm the update results based on the blinking pattern of camera status indicator or gimbal sound. It is normal for the aircraft to
sound or the LED to blink during the update process.

"The camera status indicator will blink green and red to indicate the

It should also say "camera status will turn a solid green when upgrade has been a success".

I don't believe so.. Stay on the SDK version of you need SDK support for now until its clarified.

I'm not beta testing any of the 3rd p[arty apps so cannot confirm officially.

So if I have multiple batteries, I should just wait until the first update is done on the phantom, and then just pop another one in and start the aircraft again?

There may be an error in the newly changed firmware update manual?
According to the manual, when aircraft update is successful the LED's should STOP blinking.
However the LED's do not seem to stop blinking, but the beep signals will change from D-D-D-D to D- -D-D upon successful aircraft update, which can be checked in the logfile.

The links are there because it's now possible to downgrade as far back as firmware 1.1.9.

I can see that but why would you need to if 1.3.20 does the job?

Because some people will ALWAYS think there is a problem that the firmware caused/is causing. Most were happy with 1.2.6/8 ( with VPS off ) but other complained and complained asking to go back to 1.1.9.

It seems now DJI allow the downgrade for those who want, you question this decision and speculate over the latest firmware' stability

Can't please everyone it seems ..

I had my first problem!!!!
Updated everything, including 2nd battery. Test flying with 2nd one, at about 45% battery I get critical battery warning and auto landing starts. Managed to just get it back from over the pool and land safe!!!!. Tried the 1st battery and took it from 100% to 30% no problem. Charging the 2nd one to re-test.

Must add, 2nd battery was not 100% charged, was about 50% when I did the update.

Question, if critical battery landing has started, can you take control using Atti mode?

Basically yes. After you have inserted the un-updated battery and fired up the quad the system will upgrade the battery, accompanied with all the usual beeps and random flashings of the battery LEDs.
the camera status light will be a solid green when done and the battery level indicators will show their normal pattern when finished.

You cannot stop people having issues.. The rollback is an option. A good one IMO.

Flying away un-commanded was/is not an issue with the P3 as far as I know, definitely not the normal complaints/issues reported by users. Those experiencing this behaviour need to look at other factors and contact DJI.

And, more importantly, the option to roll back will allow people to revert if they have trouble with future firmware updates.

I can not update the firmware on Phantom 3 Pro (v1.3.20). At first time updating process was about 20 minutes, then RED light and solid "BBBBBB". The next times it looked like in this video. Always - “result: failed”.

P.S. Everything is done according to the instructions, tried various memory cards. RC was updated ok.

Let's start this out right, Please post what Phantom you have (Pro / Adv) what Device you are using and what version Operating System you are on. The version of Pilot you are on.

With so many combinations out there we can not get a good handle on what is or is not working
