Apparently there is an update for FP8 (1.02) but i can't make it work.
It transfers, i restart the FP8 as indicated, it starts to load the firmware and back to idle, but firmware is still 1.01.
I tried on Mac OSX or Windows : same issue !!!
Anybody managed to do this update ?

The same thing happens to me when I try the update. The update process runs, it says it's successful, but the FP is still at 1.01.

Since the new v2.0 Universal Control was out I'm just looking if a new FP8 Firmware update is available. So clicking in Universal Control at Settings>Firmware update the pop-up tell me: installed FP8 version: 1.01 New Version: 1.02 But Attention please! I would suppose that there is still no FP8 update newer than version 1.01. In this case Universal Control is IMHO a little bit confusing things and just will overwrite the 1.01 version with the same version 1.01. So everybody is wondering why not version 1.02 is writing on FP8. Regarding to the FP8 manual you can see Universal Control will shown at start screen a small notice beside if any Firmware is available. In consequence: It seems you can only update FP8 Firmware when a small notice will pop-up in Universal Control start window for newer update.

By the way: Seriously DAW users avoid using there music computers with connecting to the internet. But if Universal Control is offline it would not be able to search automatically for possible updates. Is there any official place for announcing new FP8 Firmware updates at PreSonus pages/forums?

Greats

You're right !! 1.02 is in fact 1.01.
I resetted FP8 to default. so it went back to 1.00
Applying 1.02 again, installed 1.01

Hello Everyone,

Regarding the FaderPort 8 v1.02 firmware update:

Firmware version v1.02 is only a numerical revision for compatibility with the new Universal Control 2.0. The firmware version that is installed onto the FaderPort 8 is still v1.01 as there is no change to the firmware itself.

Firmware version v1.02 in Universal Control is only a revision for Universal Control 2.0 compatibility and will only reinstall v1.01 on the FaderPort 8 itself. This is normal and does not have any adverse effect on your FaderPort 8.

So, thanks for clarification in this fact. Are you from Presonus? Looking to your avatar I would assume this. If so, please explain how Presonus will inform FP8 users for a new firmware update later than v1.01 when it's still out there. Should we every day start the Universal Control with connected FP8 also with online status on computer to detect a probably new firmware version for FP8? And of course right now FP8 is not perfect. I strongly recommend more powerful features for FP8 in future. And hopefully do not waiting years for this.
