G1 Software Install Procedure
Godox have released the much anticipated new G1 firmware update software, which very much simplifies user firmware update procedures.
NOTE – Firmware files downloaded using the Internet Explorer browser are for some reason changed to a .man file extension, instead of the regular .rar file type.
If your system can not extract compressed .man files, then you can simply rename the files to .rar.
Free 7-Zip software can extract .rar and .man compressed files if needed – www.7-zip.org
NOTE - Before connecting the device (strobe or radio trigger etc) to your computer via a PC sync cord, its important to make sure the flash or trigger is turned OFF first.
Its also important to follow Godox’s instructions on draining any remaining power from the device where needed, before connecting to the computer –
CHECKING FIRMWARE VERSION INSTALLED
Godox use various methods to access and display the firmware version currenly installed on their flashes and radio triggers –
V860II / TT685 –
AD600B / AD600BM -
If all else fails, each products Instruction Manual should detail how the firmware version can be accessed.
