Today we’re going to be talking about the DJI Assistant 2 App and how it relates to the Spark. We will also take a look at installing or downgrading firmware updates.
Assistant 2 Software here:
. With the Spark powered on and connected the Spark will now show up in the App. Once selected it will open up into the main panel where you can view the tools available for the Spark. The very top option is Firmware Update so let’s select that. Here in the Firmware Update page it will display your current Firmware on the top left in blue and it will list the 3 most current firmware updates. It gives you the option to refresh your current firmware, in case it somehow gets corrupted or it lists the 2 firmware’s that are available to downgrade. So let’s downgrade first and see what happens. Select the downgrade button and it will pop up with a to-do list. Make sure your connected to the internet and the Spark is powered on and has enough battery life for the procedure. Also, that the USB is connected throughout the entirety of the process.
The downgrade process goes in three phases download transmitting and updating phases and takes about 10-15 minutes to complete with no user intervention from me at all.
Once the downgrade is complete, the app will prompt you Update complete and it is safe to return to the firmware update screen. You can do this by selecting the back button or the Firmware Update in the Menu. Once you return to the update menu you can see that the downgrade is complete and you are now running a outdated version of firmware. Now lets update it to the latest and see how that goes.
Upgrading the firmware is the exact same process as the downgrade. Be sure to follow the process carefully and keep the Spark connected throughout the whole process. Once the upgrade is complete ensure that the Sparks current firmware is displaying the firmware that you just upgraded to. At this point it is safe to disconnect the Spark and go out and fly. Just remember to reset the IMU and compass to ensure your day of flying is full of fun!
