Hi, I will just bet that if I take a chance and put this latest firmware update on my now smooth running mx2, it will wreck what I have. I will wait till about 10,000 downloads, then if it is safe I will try it. Do not want to be the test guinea pig.

I recently tried a Spor**dev*l update program that was supposed to make Spo*ts De*il better. Did everything as outlined in the setup guide. Guess what happened. Spo*ts De*il does not work anymore as of two days ago. Worked fine before I took the chance!

When you can guarantee there are no issues, let us MX2 owners know.

This will eventually hit the OTA update from what I understand, but right this is more testing and users who want the latest firmware on their device. Once it's ready for the prime time, it should appear as an update on your device.

I've tried downloading it again with the same result.
