Official 2.6.5 to OpenGD77 Latest...Best route?

Post by G0NHF » Mon Jan 20, 2020 4:13 pm

Having seen all the fantastic features of OpenGD77 on my newer GD77 radios, I have decided to update the older one too.

Is there any specific update path I need to take before installing the latest OpenGD77 firmware?

I already have a working codeplug from my other radio that is already using OpenGD77, so basically I just want to know how to get from official 2.6.5 to the latest OpenGD77 firmware, without falling down a pit!

Great work everyone.
Hope you can help.

Thanks

There is nothing special you need to do. Just flash it the same as the stock official firmware. Also be sure to download the OpenGD77 CPS, as you'll need it and the drivers that come with.
