PowerST4 ControlTL® Firmware 5.100 Overview
PowerST4 ControlTL firmware version 5.100 addresses some improvements we have made since the launch of PowerST4 ControlTL firmware version 5.000.
When updating firmware, be sure to update all of your PowerST4 radios to the latest version, 5.100. Your radios will only operate as expected when all units are using the latest firmware.
Note: Previously used settings or saved profiles cannot be automatically reloaded after installing the new 5.100 firmware. Make sure to copy down any important settings before loading the firmware because the PocketWizard Utility will perform a factory reset once the installation is complete.
PocketWizard Utility and Factory Reset Note: Always perform a factory reset after updating your firmware. The PocketWizard Utility performs a factory reset automatically when you upgrade the firmware. It also has a Factory Reset button on the Update tab which additionally simplifies factory reset. You can also perform a Factory Reset with the radio: See RESET B, in the Wiki manual, wiki.pocketwizard.com/reset, or simply hold TEST before you power on your radio and continue to hold TEST for 10 seconds until you see 4 blinks (green).
To access these firmwares, you must first download Utility Version 1.35.
