Try doing a foot-switch 6-12 safe boot mode update...

 

Turn off the Helix and then hold down foot switches 6 and 12 both are on the far right top and bottom and while holding down turn on the Helix...

Should start up in safe mode then follow the update instructions and re-install the update..

 

Hope this helps!

Sorry to hear the update process has diminished your enthusiasm about the brand new Helix.

 

What computer and OS are you using while attempting the update?

 

Are you connecting the supplied USB cable directly between the Helix and a primary USB port on your computer (rather than a remote or hub USB port)?

Sorry guys, but living in Belgium so other timezone...

No success till now.

I run windows 10 and tried different usb ports.

Tried the 6-12 update boot... when the display says entered update mode, I hear my laptop beep like i connected something,

But nevertheless he skips the update screen...

Very dispappointing so far...

Do you have any USB 2 ports you haven't tried? USB 3 seems less reliable for some people.

Try to update it from a whole nother computer. If it still messes up its a bad Helix unit most likey. If it updates then u have computer issues.

Try to install using google chrome or some other browser. I had the same problem on a windows 10 machine using internet explorer (not edge) and it would not install. I thought I had bricked my unit for good. I could not boot up with any foot switch combinations. I finally used google chrome for the install after booting up into safe mode and at long last success. I think I booted into safe mode although I'm not sure it fully booted up. I only got a blank screen when I first booted up in safe mode.   I started the off-line install anyway and it finally installed the update. I used goggle chrome to download the firmware update file. Couldn't get internet explorer to download the file.
