Can't update Spider V 30 with SpiderRemote app

Recommended Posts

Trying to update my new (to me) Spider V 30 to the latest software. Current software is 0.05.0a - I think this might be an ex display model or something?


Anyway, I can connect the phone alright - the app prompts me to update. Once I try to update I get an error message that says 'Device Update Failed:('


I can't seem to get it past this? The Line6 help page says that I need to press both the amp+FX buttons to get the amp into update mode, but I can't seem to get this to work. Doesn't matter how long I hold those buttons down for, it doesn't go into any update mode.


Anyone else experienced anything like this? Is updating via PC any more reliable than via the IOS app?

Hi gwopponz, 


The firmware installed on your unit is from Spider V's very first release, which is most likely the reason of the update issue. 


I recommend updating your Spider V to the latest firmware with a computer via USB. 


To do this, download the Line 6 updater from here: https://line6.com/software/ and connect your Spider V via USB. 


Download the latest firmware: 2.00.0


Feel free to respond with any questions you may have, thank you!
