POD HD500/HD Desktop/HD Pro v2.62 Release Notes


POD HD Flash Memory v2.62 RELEASE NOTES


POD HD v2.62 is a FREE firmware update that includes additional features and optimizations. It is highly recommended that all POD HD users perform this update!


It is also recommended that you back up your current presets by using POD HD Edit to create a preset bundle, allowing you to include installing new presets as part of the update process.


The easiest way to perform the update process is by installing the latest version of Line 6 Monkey. Once you've connected your POD HD to your computer via USB port (hubs are not supported), Monkey will recognize the unit and take you through the update process. It's important to update both the USB Firmware (1.04) and Flash Memory (2.62).


The Line 6 Monkey application may be downloaded here.
