Firmware update

 

Info
titleImportant

Due to the fact, that Android-5.1 requires a lot of more memory than older Android versions we recommend to insert an external SD-card, or plug in an USB-stick with minimum 2GB free memory space, at least during the upgrade phase!

We strongly advise to do a factory reset after the upgrade to Lollipop, to be sure that all new Lollipop features and settings are correct. A stable SIP device is required in a business customer environment. Via save - restore the configuration or provisioning, the SIP accounts settings can easily be restored. For Android settings / Apps, see the Android Backup and Restore procedure.

 

There are 3 options to upgrade.

Option 1: Two step Method using an SD-card or USB-memory-stick.

 

  1. Plug in an SD-card or USB-stick with at least 2GB free memory (or enter an external SD card). Then start the Maxwell-10 WEB-UI and follow exactly the following 3 steps:
  2. In the web-interface go to: System - Firmware Update page and check if the Data server field is (default) profile.gigaset.net/device
     
  3. Press "Save"
  4. Press "Update firmware"

 The update will be done in 2 steps.

  1. Upgrade to new Jelly Bean software with USB drivers upgrade to support the USB memory extension.
  2. Upgrade to Lollipop.

Option 2: One step method using external SD-card.

 

  1. Enter an external SD-card (or plug in an USB-stick).
  2. Download the software via the "Download" button on this page.
  3. Unpack the zip file. You will get a .txt file with the Open Source License text and an encrypted zip file which is your firmware image.
  4. In the web-interface go to: System - Firmware Update page and select the above extracted zip file.
  5. Start the upgrade.

Option 3: One step method without external SD-card.

 

  1. Do a factory reset of the Maxwell 10 to free all memory for firmware update.
