How to Update G10 Transmitter Firmware via Spider V Amps


Line6Tony

Overview: For those who have access to a Spider V (MKI or MKII) amp and wish to update the G10T Transmitter, it must be done in the order shown below (first update the amp, then the G10). We strongly suggest updating the amp with the latest version of the Line 6 Updater from a desktop/laptop computer, even though it is possible to do so from a mobile device.

  9. Watch for the update status to be completed on the Spider V LCD.  Once completed, the amp will restart.  
  10. Disconnect and reconnect the USB cable, then repeat the process for the G10T Transmitter


Note:
If you experience a failed update or your amp locks up during boot up, you can hold down the Amp and FX buttons to enter Update Mode. Once it's in Update Mode, attempt the update procedure again.

 

II. Update the G10T Firmware with the Spider V Amp

 

  • Make sure the Spider V amp is still connected to the computer, and that the computer is still connected to the internet
  • Insert the G10T all the way into the Spider's Input jack
  • Ensure that the "SELECT" switch is still engaged with the USB port labeled "Mac/PC". Turn on your Spider amp if it's off.
  • Run the Line 6 Updater program. Sign in to your Line 6 User Account.
  • Click on “Relay G10T”
  • Click the “Update” button next to the latest firmware version. Follow the prompts to begin the update process. Important: Do not turn off or unplug your Spider V amp or computer during the update.
  • The Updater will say the amp is resetting, but take note of the amp's display, as it will continue updating, ultimately showing "Part 1 of 1 100% Updating Transmttr". The amp will reset itself, ending the update process.
