2.80 "The Missed Connections Update"
AVAILABLE SPRING SECOND SPRING 2019—Don't go looking for it now!

 

Has the post been modified, second spring? Southern Hemisphere? so version 2.80 will be released after September?

No its coming soon. I'd bet this week if not today, judging by what Frank R stated this morning on The Gear Page.

Whoa! Whoa! Hold on there buddy. Let me get my PDKTDK Fun/Support Meter out. Hmmmm. Yep, just as I suspected. You're obviously having too much fun and not properly supporting this thread. Be careful or the Hall Monitor will be all over you. And I can assure you, You don't want that.

The fun is about to begin sweetheart.  You might want to change your panties for this one. 

 

2.8 seems to be eminent!

Sorry to break your heart but, as I've told you many times, I'm not your sweetheart and it's awfully arrogant of you to assume that everyone wears the same underwear you do let alone have to change them all the time. Perhaps you should consider a large diaper like Depends?

Seeing that the original list of added amps and effects hasn't changed since Jan., I'm excited to see if they do add any more things into the update. I'm already excited about the Zendrive and KOT. I would love to see a Guv'nor put in there, but there is so much to choose from now, you can get lost for hours and create pretty much whatever your ears could ever want to hear. I went from the HD500 to the Helix LT 2 weeks ago so I'm still building basic presets and loading IRs. The new additions will be awesome, and I am in agreement that the timing with Summer NAMM would be nice

Until I download it with my own hands, and play it with my own guitar, I won't believe it.

You can’t ignore me.   If you’re not my sweetheart you are most certainly my lollipop with a capital B.

Sweet! I was stoked to see the PC+ 212 until I saw that it's literally 2X the cost. Any chance of a non-plus version?

I'm frozen on "rebuilding preset 265".... sobs

 

what I did (HELIX RACK) : restart with ENC5 & ENC6 - reset globals and restore presets, setlists, and IRs (entire factory restore)

 

and trying right now to restore backup and IR with HX Edit, and it worked...

Stating the obvious with a profound sense of discovery but 2.8 is now available on the download page.  Anyone having a successful upgrade experience (ye bold bleeding edgers)?  Please let us know, especially if you had to do something outside of the update instructions to get it working. Thanks!

Ditto, upgraded Helix and 2 x powercab 112 Plus with no issues. Dang now I got to head out on a service call otherwise I'd play with it some more. Work, work, work. :-)

Ignore you? Wasn't I responding to you? That would not be the definition ignore. Perhaps along with the diapers you should pick up a dictionary. And no, I'm not your word with a capital B in any way shape or form. More wishful thinking on your part. You're no good as a bully. Just stick to monitoring that hall. Though you're no good at it either, it's what you seem to be best at.

Mine's been stuck halfway through the update for a over half hour now. Others on TGP are having the same issue, but we're being told this is normal. If anyone else is having this issue don't panic.

Updated my LT without any problems just minutes ago(Windows).

Does anybody know where I can find a current manual(pdf) for 2.80 (if it exists)? The available one on https://de.line6.com/support/manuals/helixlt is labeled for Firmware 2.10 :-/

v2.80 firmware upgrade was going great, until I got to the "Boot Failure, Entered Update Mode!" error.... now I'm stuck (with :-3 in the top left corner in red).

 

Been like this for 10 minutes, I clicked the "OK" to continue the upgrade in the update utility and it has clearly failed....AHHHHHHHHHH

 

What should I do?  The progress indicator is still spinning, but it's definitely stuck in a loop or something.....

I updated mine with no issues. What I did was click "OK" before waiting too long.  Did not wait around when the bar got to 50%.

The latest manual is the one you mention - for v2.10. The next manual release will be for firmware v3.0. Meantime the release notes for each individual release contain information on all new features and operations.

my Helix floor has done the same too ,seems to be going nowhere....

 

after some time I got it working by

1   unplug usb

2   turn off helix

3   hold down button 6 and 12 and turn power on

4  when Helix logo appears let go

5  make sure to install latest HXedit with all the drivers

6  Plug Usb in

7  open the update app and reinstall file

 Hope this is helpful

...I REPEAT AGAIN AND AGAIN...there's a sticky for you folks who want factual information about the update. Nothing anyone posts here is anything more than conjecture.

Now out: 

 

So, which thread did Digital_Igloo decide to announce the release on?  And how many people are going to miss it because:

 

A.  They assume Line 6 would have the common sense to announce it on their official sticky, it would of course be ridiculous to do otherwise, wouldn't it?

 

B.  They won't bother looking here because it's been hijacked by a bunch of schoolgirls.

 

Great job forum admin.

So much angst.  You should write a song about it!

Let all that anger out!  I bet it'll be killer.
