Line6 Pod X3 Live Stuck On Update Flash - A Solution

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

 

I was having thepod x3 live stuck on update flash problem. Finally, finally got it resolved today. This worked for me:

 

1) Try and use the USB ports located on the back of your computer if possible.  i.e. one that is soldered to your motherboard.

2) Use the version 1.0 firmware.

 

Note: step one was suggested by Line6Don. Thank you!

Also, after I got the pedal working w/ version 1.0 firmware, I tried updating to the newest firmware and the problem came back.

I went back to version 1.0 and the pedal is working again! Thank goodness...

 

Good luck y'all.

 

Dave

i've had that issue once or twice when i had my x3. I ended up having to disconnect everything but the usb cable, that's what worked for me.

I tended to have alot of stuff plugged in...

PA, a couple of guitars, variax, etc...

have you also tried downloading the firmware file and using the flash from file option?

i usually try that if i'm having issues since it takes some parts of the process out of the equation... helps narrow down the troubleshooting.

Hi, how are you?

Vitor,

 

Go here: http://line6.com/software/

 

Enter your info x3, os etc BUT be sure to select the "archived" button on the right next to the choices. DL the firmware to your pc and chose the "flash from file" option in Monkey.

Hi BillBee, thank you for answer.

 

I tried it, but no software appear with the "achieved" button selected.

 

I selected:

 

Pod X3 Live

Flash memory

Windows 8

achieved

 

I tried to change the Windows 8 for others but no software appeared.

 

Do you know other way to Download this file?

 

Thank you very much

Uncheck the archived box for some reason it was not moved and all the flash files are there.  X3Live - Flash - All OS should help you find the one you need.

Hi BillBee

 

I fixed it :D

 

I uninstall all Line 6 programs and install the newest version of the monkey, so I install the drives and select just the drivers of the pod X3.

 

So a installed the newest falsh memory and it worked :)

 

Thank you so much for tried to help me.

 

Hey, I would like to ask, Do you think pod HD500 is so much better than pod x3 live?

 

Thank you BillBee, have a good day.
