How to Update your DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 Firmware
Here at Uplift, we know we drone on (punny) about how we want to help – but we really do mean it, we’re all about giving a helping hand when we can.
We know that Firmware updates can be frustrating– so we’ve broken them down for you into this simple 10-step guide.
Before you begin the update, make sure that the aircraft’s and remote controller’s battery level is more than 50%.
There are two different ways to update your DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2.0’s firmware: Via the DJI GO 4 app or via PC.
Via the DJI GO 4 app
1. Remove the gimbal clamp.
2. Connect the remote controller to a mobile device and make sure that your mobile or tablet is connected to the internet.
3. Turn on the aircraft and remote controller.
4. Launch DJI GO 4 app.
5. The DJI GO 4 app will automatically detect the newest firmware update and you will see a ‘New firmware update available!” notification at the top of the screen. Tap the notification to enter the update screen.
6. Once you’re on the update screen, click the ‘Download Now’ button. The firmware will automatically download and begin updating.
7. When ‘Update Complete’ appears onscreen, the firmware update is finished. Simply click OK once it appears.
8. If multiple flight batteries need to be updated, insert each additional battery into the aircraft and update separately.
9. Once you’ve inserted the battery, an ‘Inconsistent Firmware Found’ notification will be shown. Simply slide the slide bar and the drone will automatically update the corresponding module.
10. After the updates have been successful, restart the aircraft.
Before updating via PC make sure to fully charge the drone and remote controller.
1. Connect the Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 to the PC via a USB cable.
2. Turn on the drone.
3. On your computer, launch DJI Assistant 2 and log in to your DJI account. Your computer must be connected to the internet and have the latest version of DJI Assistant 2 installed.
4. Wait until the firmware list is shown on the screen and click “UPGRADE” and update the aircraft’s firmware – from there, follow the on-screen instructions. Do not turn off the aircraft or touch the USB cable during the update.
Updating the remote controller
5. After the aircraft has updated, connect the remote controller to the PC via a USB cable.
6. Turn on the remote controller.
7. Head back to your PC and click on the connected device.
8. Like the aircraft update, click “UPGRADE” on the firmware update screen. From there, follow the on-screen instructions until the remote controller is fully updated.
Now your DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 and remote controller are ready to go and you can get back in the skies with the latest firmware.
