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%.
There are two different ways to update your DJI Mavic 2’s firmware: Via the DJI GO 4 app or via the DJI Assistant 2. When updating via DJI Assistant 2, please note that the aircraft and remote controller must be updated separately.
Via the DJI GO 4 app
1. Make sure that your mobile device is connected to the internet.
2. Connect your remote controller to your mobile device.
3. Turn on the remote controller and aircraft.
4. Make sure that your mobile device is connected to a mobile or Wi-Fi network and then launch DJI GO 4.
5. When a firmware update is available, a notification will be displayed in the app. Tap the notification and a download menu will pop up.
6. Once the menu pops up, click ‘Download Now’ and the app will automatically start downloading and upgrading the firmware package.
Remember, do not power off the aircraft, turn off the app, unplug any cables or turn off the remote controller while you are updating. Your aircraft may restart multiple times during the update.
7. When finished, the app will display a notification indicating that the update is complete, simply click OK.
8. If you have multiple Mavic 2 Intelligent Flight Batteries, insert each additional battery and perform the ‘slide to update’ step to automatically update each battery separately.
9. Once the firmware update for your aircraft, remote controller and batteries is complete, simply restart your aircraft.
Via DJI Assistant 2 – Aircraft
1. Connect the aircraft to your PC or Mac with the USB cable.
2. Turn on the aircraft.

5. Select the newest firmware version.
6. Click ‘UPGRADE’.
7. The upgrade package will begin downloading.
8. Once the download is complete, upgrading will begin automatically.
Make sure your PC is connected to the internet and your aircraft, and make sure your Mavic 2 is always on.
