JB3 -> downgrading firmwares
« on: October 12, 2003, 05:44:24 AM »
not my ideas, but it looks legit, stolen from nomadness.net

Preface: Good day people, I've heard Theysius and others asking for procedures when folks say they downgraded their firmware; in accordance to the mystery of the non-downgradable firmware. Well after my tests, it is not true *unless I have some magical Nomad*

1) Backup all you data (music/file manager)
2) Boot into Rescue Mode by pressing the reset button, holding stop, the pressing play once you see the "Creative Logo"
3) Select "Reload OS" and answer yes to the warning
4) Load the Unpacked Installer of the firmware you wish to you downgrade to (you must be on DC power to do this)
5) After it loads, you will be prompted to reset your player, do so
6) You now are on a lower firmware

The above referenced procedure works to downgrade your firmware from a higher level firmware, tested with the following configurations:

1.36.02p -> 1.32.02p
1.36.02p -> 1.20.06p
1.32.02p -> 1.20.06p

*You are unabled to downgrade your firmware to a version earlier of 1.20.06p*

I'd like to note from my research with all of this, that the "mysterious French firmware" does not in fact lower the volume on English, English Int, or Spanish language settings, only on French (I concluded this after plugging it into a decibel reader on my computer, EAX off, and on the same volume setting of 12. Also, from what I have read and found with my own small issues of the freezing after pressing next more than a few times, that the 1.36.02p firmware resolves all of these issues; and I have tested this to be completely downgradable to firmware 1.32.02p in the off chance than any upgrade from Creative Americas will release an update with a lower volume number than 1.36.02p which I wouldn't suspect since they would most likely release it for European Nomads which must be above 1.36.02p.

->->->Upgrading To Firmware 1.36.02p Is Recommended<-<-<

Good Luck People... I hope this resolved some of your doubts and questions.

*Before doing a downgrade or upgrade, I recommend backing up all data in case of any issue which might occur while doing this; also incase you select format all instead of reload os (be careful)*

hope someone can find this usefull for getting rid of any new firmware that may be causing probs

Do a search on nomadness.org or whatever it is, a lot of people were having issues with 1.32.x firmware locking up their JB3 on boot and stuff..

Didn't realize there was a 1.36.x out there, wonder what they added..
