Iridium OS Update
* V 2.8.0 also includes all new features and bug fixes of version 3.0 BETA 12
If you are interested to take part of our BETA program and receive a newer OS version, just send us an email to email@example.com
ATTENTION: The Iridium Desktop OS versions are not compatible with the Iridium Keyboard and the Quantum and should not be installed on these devices.
Unzip the file and copy iridium.update.bin into the main directory of a USB drive or a MicroSD card. The drive doesn’t need to have any special certifications. Use FAT or EX FAT format. You will need less than 20MB of free space on the drive.
Connect the USB drive to the Controller port on your Iridium or carefully insert the MicroSD card into the corresponding slot. The card needs to be inserted with the upside upwards and the contacts facing downwards and forwards. Gently insert the card and avoid jamming it. The card clicks into place when inserted correctly.
On Iridium, press Global/System/Update and select the .bin file. Iridium now processes the update automatically. During the process, do not touch any of the controls on the device, do not send MIDI towards Iridium and most important, do not switch off the device and do not cut the power. The whole process takes less than a minute.
