  1. I’ve tried to upgrade from x.0300 to x.0500 several times over the past few days, using both the DJI Go4 app on my iPhone, and the Assistant 2 app on my Mac, and it always gives up the ghost after either 69% (DJI Go) or 55% (Assistant 2). No clue what I am doing wrong, or what the issue is.

    • Hi James, Thanks for your comment. We would recommend erasing the and any other files related to DJI on your Mac. Re-Download the Assistant from here. If this doesn’t solve the issue we have heard reports of people successfully deleting their DJI GO App, rebooting, and re-downloading the App, then retrying. Lastly, you could reach out to DJI here. Hope you get it updated!

  2. Hey Felix, does this DJI Mavic Pro Firmware Update have to be done on a Mac? I have an old windows machine and its not upgrading

    • Hi David, the firmware update doesn’t have to be done on a mac. We just use a Mac primarily which is why the screenshots were mac based. The assistant is also available for pc at the links found above in the article. If you already have the assistant 2 downloaded, uninstall the application, reboot the computer, reformat the microSD card in the mavic(backup images first) and then try re-downloading the assistant 2 from the above links. Hope that helps!
