The programmer itself may be updated after purchase. Hunter Industries may release firmware updates, and these can be used to overwrite or “re-flash” the ICD-HP operating system. This can add new features, or install a newer version of decoder firmware for updating decoders.
Flash updates may be emailed or downloaded. Once received, they must be installed on a computer first. Consult the documentation that accompanies the update program for the correct procedure.
To prepare the ICD-HP for update:
The ICD-HP will restart when the update is finished. The Hunter logo will appear and the new version number will be visible in the display.
Note: If the update software is not started within 2 minutes, the ICD-HP will time out of update mode. The “DO NOT DISCONNECT – PLEASE WAIT” message will disappear, and the ICD-HP will return to normal operating mode or turn off if the operating system update was not completed.
You may restart the update mode at any time.
Turn the ICD-HP off with the power button.
Press and hold the ? button, and turn the ICD-HP power on with the power button. Continue holding the ? button until the display re-appears and says “DO NOT DISCONNECT – PLEASE WAIT”. The ICD-HP will now be in flash update mode again.
