3.01 update

Recommended Posts

The update would be great...........If I can keep the HX edit from crashing long enough to update it. Any suggestions?

 No, It crashes within seconds of opening it. Then I have to restart the Helix to start the process all over.

it maybe due to the traffic of users hitting the servers all at the same time.

 

Just a thought.

Try updating using the Line 6 Updater program instead of HX Edit.

Then download software from updates page and do that way instead of thru Helix Edit 

I didn't see a  d/l on the updates page for 3.01

None of my Line 6 hardware shows up on the Line 6 updater software.

Hi Buddy are you sure - what hardware do you have ?

 

Downloads are here

 

https://line6.com/software/

 

 

when I open Line 6 updater it's a blank screen. At the top it says "select device to update". There's a black screen

I've been using line6 updater for my helix LT off and on for a while, including during beta testing of 3.0 - it works fine and has some advantages and disadvantages compared to hx edit for your updates.  But it should see your devices.  Are your devices added or anything that you need to do to configure it?  Maybe your issue isn't hx edit as much as your pc right now?

Ok, so I'm "a special user", but still it's there in the public downloads.  3.01.0 replaced 3.0.0

My Helix LT worked just fine yesterday. Today there's a firmware update and it all goes to crap. The Line 6 updater has never shown any of my hardware so i've never used it. I did manage to find the 3.01.0 update and d/l it. Then when I try to open it, it wants me to d/l an app to open the d/l? I'm perplexed.

Reinstall Helix Edit then run it and update your LT from Helix Edit 

This is what i ended up doing. uninstalled HX Edit and Line 6 updater. Reinstalled both and then restarted Helix LT because HX Edit still wouldn't connect. After that all went well. Thank you everyone for your time and suggestions.

Have noticed issues connecting to L6 servers for the past time. Helix Edit needs to be online to update the device but it's not possible. Used Line 6 updater to roll 3.01 from 2.82 offline (downloaded the firmware file prior). Went perfect, all works.
