Software Update through Internet

You are here:
< Back

The Updates page shows if there is a software update available for your unit. The updates page can be accessed by selecting the Updates tab from the selection bar on any page. The updates page will look something like the following screen shot.

Using this page, the system will check for any software updates.

The latest software includes the ability to implement a full download of the new application software and a new operating system if required. This is done by connecting Rosetta to the internet using an RJ45 internet cable from Rosetta to your broadband router. The RJ45 cable is connected by taking the Rosetta end cap off and the Ethernet socket is located on the LHS of the sockets bay. The RJ45 cable is then connected to a free port on the Router. When connected, the green and yellow lights on the Ethernet Socket on Rosetta should be illuminated. You may need to remove your GPS dongle to get access to the RJ45 socket

Select Download & Install latest Full Release DO NOT POWER OFF.

One you have done this as the instruction says DO NOT POWER OFF. The best thing to do is to go away for 30 minutes or more, don’t touch anything and when you get back light L2 (on the side of Rosetta underneath the label) will be flashing red and green showing that the software has been updated. Take Rosetta outside to get a GPS fix and L2 will be solid green and you are good to go.

If you want to watch the process this is what is happening.

(i) you will see a screen like this which will update from 0 to 100% as stuff is happening. DO NOT TURN THE POWER OFF.

This will then get to 100% and the software will report that it is doing other stuff such as “Inflating’, “Removing leading/ from member’s names”, “Saving Personal Data” and other stuff ending with “FILESYS: Mount RO”. DO NOT TURN THE POWER OFF.

Then it will declare “rebooting” DO NOT TURN THE POWER OFF.

At this point, all will seem dead as the Rosetta reboots and unpacks the software as normal with a manual software update. This takes about 15 minutes. LEDs 3 and 4 on the motherboard will be red and green flashing as the software is unpacked. DO NOT TURN THE POWER OFF.

When Rosetta is rebooting you may get a notice such as the one below as the WiFi link to Rosetta is dropped.

DO NOT TURN THE POWER OFF.

Once the software has unpacked, light L2 (on the side of Rosetta underneath the label) will start flashing red and green showing that all is back and the software is updated. Take Rosetta outside to get a GPS fix and L2 will be solid green and you are ready to go. The SSID will be back and you will be able to log in again. Once you have done this you can now turn the power off if required.
