    I would try to flash the official Sept 14 firmware then follow the guide here

    to get the 9991 version. I haven't seen a patched version any later than the one
    that's posted on here.

    Can you get the Sept 14 version to flash or are you getting an error with that version ?

    Yeah, I had to flash the Sept 14 version from the blade site, then flash the 9991 version from the link in the guide.

    Sometimes it looked like it was flashing the 9991 version or giving a "file mismatch error" so I had to take it back
    to the official Sept 14 version first.

    When I went to "information" in the menus the box I was working on still said the May 15 official version was on the box.

    I will ask about and see what I can find.

    Ok I have found this here

    so you could give it a try, it came from somebody who posts blade firmware
    on other forums.

    I am also waiting on an answer if there is a later version

    Let me know how you get on.

    Seen a few similar posts as yours on a few forums now

    All with the May 16 firmware on.

    So it may be a case of new patched firmware.

    Still waiting for somebody to get back to me, so something might turn up.

    Hi all,
    Would it be possible to try that file CDCrossy?
    I want to update my firmware. I use the config file update as opposed to the 9991 option.
    But after Aug 15 firmware the config file just arnt visible when I try to update.

    hi bees ,! is that link for bm500s or the s500s neo firmware ? I have bm500s and the firmware is the jul 7 2014 patched version, should I try looking somewhere for a newer version and which one would u recommend and what advantage would it be? I am new to this forum and am a complete novice so any info is much appreciated!

    Could you please tell me which firmware has the built in 9991 option as I downloaded the latest firmware and could not get 9991 to work. Much appreciated
