I’m trying to update a Q25 to the latest firmware and I always get this error:

The current firware is MX-V184.108.40.206.
I tried to update the next version and the last version, with the same error…
Do you know what this error could be due to?
First, make sure that the camera’s date and time are up to date.
If you are sure the date and time are current
You can try the updates of the camera step by step.
MX-System Release 220.127.116.11.r2
MX-System Release 18.104.22.168
MX-System Release 22.214.171.124
MX-System Release 126.96.36.199
MX-System Release 188.8.131.52-r1
The camera´s date and time are up to date.
I tried with the fw 184.108.40.206.r2 and 220.127.116.11 and get this error.
System Upload Log Window

I read in another post that for this error the time had to be changed to one year from the date of the fw.
I change the date and the original error “Failed to write KERNEL to flash” appears again
I am updating around 60 cameras and so far only one has failed…
Any more suggestions?
Can you store configuration on the camera? I mean if changes in settings are kept after reboot. I had cameras where “flash” was in some kind of “read only” state. We scraped those cameras.
Yes, the configuration saves correctly.
In fact, in this revision I changed the nfs path and after the reboot it correctly saved the changes.
What i would try:
- Disable ntp
- Set clock to 2017-12-30
- Format the sd card
- Reset config
- Upload MX_system_4_4305.mpl
if this would work, next step would be set to 2019-07-01 and try with MX_system_4_7221.mpl after that latest. If not, try and contact support with camera report file. Maybe they will be able to help.
I don´t find 4_4305.mpl.
In this page https://www.mobotix.com/en/support/download-center/software-downloads-archive
From version 4.4.2.xxxx jumps to version 4.7.2.xxxx
Anyway, i tried your steps with version 18.104.22.168 but the error persits.
I will try contact support.
