Maybe it just depends what you're updating to / from or something, but needless to say I'll be more careful next time! Better safe than sorry... An upgrade that retains the global settings cuts down on a huge number of errant "my HX device is broken or different from before the upgrade" support calls and posts. Although the restore of the global settings may have been Line6's only objective and the only reason they posted that in the update instructions I did not make that assumption. You will notice they did not instruct you to uncheck your user/factory setlists(that is a restore option) and only restore the global settings. For all I know there might have been some additional piece of processing that ensured a smoother upgrade on your setlists if they were restored as well. I actually was curious as to whether the intent was just the globals or if restore was also necessary for reprocessing the presets to be compatible with the new firmware when I saw the instructions on my last upgrade. Without more detailed guidance from Line6 I try to follow the upgrade instructions to the letter. Since Line6 did not include the reason for the restore, that included the setlists/presets. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
