Default DX9 update Version 2.08 - 2021-Feb-15

I,

Version 2.08 - Changes listed below are since 2020-Sep-11.

For info on earlier versions not found in this document, please visit
Spektrum AirWare Change Logs

Corrections & Improvements
• Corrected servo “glitch” problem with older 22ms DSM2 and DSMX receivers.
• Reduced possibilities of “System Fault” errors occurring during model save
operations.
• Added Forward Programming support for AR631 and other upcoming receivers.
• Radios no longer speak “Student/Instructor has control” when in System Mode or
when importing/exporting files.
• The Dual Rate/Expo screen did not properly display curves after setting the
switch to Inhibit on another axis.
• Multirotor Digital Switch Setup showed incorrect channel assignment for the
selected switch.
• Metric GPS distance is now displayed properly.
• Optionally require the throttle stick to be lowered when releasing the Throttle Cut
switch before allowing the stick to control the throttle. This new feature is mutually exclusive of the Delay option, and the screen will automatically change to make that clear.
• Radios always save the latest changes to a model when exporting.
• Enabled reverse travel capability for analog flap control.
• If the user pressed BACK on the Aircraft Type or Sailplane Type screens while a
field was open, channel assignments could have been invalid. BACK will now close the field from editing, allowing a second BACK press to return to the System Menu.
• Swapped the Channel Input Assign and Receiver Port Assign screens. This will simplify BNF model configuration per the manuals.
• Hides the unused AS3X Gains screen when talking to a new-generation stabilized receiver. The gain data for them is available through the Forward Programming interface.
Audio System Changes (Voice output models only)
• No changes since Sound version 1.09 (2016-Oct-12)
• If you previously updated to Sound 1.09 there is no need to update again.


Best

Thanks for the warning.
Since Spektrum has established a well deserved reputation for overall lack of SW Quality Control and failed software updates on my various receivers and iX12, and since 2.0.6 and 2.0.7 for my DX9 were such unmitigated disasters, I have no plans to update past 2.05 which has been running fine.
If it ain't broke, don't fix it. Especially if it's from Spektrum.


If you find these comments objectionable, note these items in the release notes:

These are all "fixes" to the mess they made in 2.07.00 (then tried to fix in 2.07.01, 2.07.02 & 2.07.03)

Ditto, I've been on 2.05 since I bought mine new and as it works fine now, I have no plans to update!

I’m going to update my DX9 TX and was wondering if I have to update every version like 2.05 then 2.07 then 2.07.3 & then 2.08 version? Or can I just go from my version straight to the 2.08 version? Any help that anyone can provide would be greatly appreciated. Thx

You can go straight to the latest version.

If you are updating from 1.x, make sure you update the speech software too.
