How to Update your DJI Mavic 2 Firmware

Here at Uplift, we know we drone on (punny) about how we want to help – but we really do mean it, so we’re all about giving a helping hand where we can.

We know that Firmware updates can be frustrating – so we’ve broken them down for you into this simple step-by-step guide for DJI Mavic 2 series with the GO 4 App and Assistant 2. This firmware update is the same for both the Mavic 2 Pro and Mavic 2 Zoom.

Before you begin the update, make sure that the aircraft’s and remote controller’s battery level is more than 50%. The firmware update will fail if the aircraft’s or remote controller’s battery power is less than 50%.
