Failed firmware update.
« on: October 26, 2021, 05:32:57 pm »
Hello, I attempted to update my MF to the new v. 4 firmware, but it failed stating "failed to burn" or something like that. In hindsight, I should have written down the message but was panicking.

Now when I power on my MF, I get the loading screen for a sec, then it goes blank with the utility light on. In the midi control center, it does detect that the MF is connected, but in the section where you add/remove patches it doesn't show the device as connected. Anyone know of a way to reset?

If the update failed, the uF should normally boot into bootloader mode when switched on. Then you can just do the upgrade again if it's connected to the MIDI Control Center.
