How to update the F4/F6 firmware manually

August 28th, 2017

Recently NO.1 releases the F4, the multi-sport mode bracelet.

It is a pity that the companion app Fundo Pro can only support English and Chinese, so does the bracelet. We received some feedback about this, it is important to include other languages in the app. So we’re now doing the translations. But not the bracelet, you know, there are only several words in bracelet, you can even guess the function via the icons. So we are going to release a new firmware for F4, to delete the words under the icons.icon

*This method also works for NO.1 F6, you can download the F6 firmware here* Latest F6 firmware.This firmware improves the pedometer algorithm.

So if you receive a F4 with the words under the icons, if you mind the English display, you can follow this tutorial to update your F4 to a pure version.

  1. Download the Nrf Master Control APP and the firmware here. Or the version 2.3, the latest version 2.6.(this version fixed the pedometer issue.)
  2. Extract the file, install the Nrf Master control app in your phone, don’t unzip the F4_20170826 firmware.
  3. Find the correct Mac address, connect it.
  4. After the connection is successful, click the Unknown service.
  5. Click the unknown characteristic
  6. Input the value 42, click send.
  7. Click the ‘X’ button, then refresh the app to find the DfuTarg, connect it.
  8.  

  9. Click this button then go to this window to choose the firmware.
  10.  Screenshot_20170828-172723_1 Screenshot_20170828-172723_副本 Screenshot_20170828-172734 Screenshot_20170828-172752_副本
  11. Waiting for the update process

Done. If you failed to update, the bracelet will  reset after 3 seconds it will boot.

    Good day! I saw that the new F4 Color smartband is equipped with 0.2.8 firmware. If this firmware is compatible with the old model F4, please post a link here to update our bands. Thanks!

    This update works to DN60?
    It does not update to version 0.2.9 and stays at 0.2.6.
    This version has a lot of problems in connection, its unpair and only connect again with phone reboot.

      Sorry, I don’t know what is SN60 and it is not supposed to work with it. Because the firmware is not universal.

    Since a couple of days my F4 does not show the weather. In Fundo when I tap refresh icon does not refresh and says “No weather yet”. It looks like there is no internet connection but I have mobile and Wi-Fi internet connection.

    Dear Jon, I cannot ask directly on the F5 updating firmware post, so I ask you here.
    1) my F5 actual firmware, checked on the watch, is 1.58.7. On the post “how to update F5 firmware manually” you show a method for Android devices. How can I perform a manual update with an iPhone or a Windows pc?
    2) on the post I read there is an indication of the 1.6.3 and 1.6.6 new firmware versions for the F5. But connectin the eatch to the Hplus app I’m not be able to update the watch firmware, it’s alwais 1.58.7.
    Thanks if you can help me.

      Sorry Marangoni, this method only works with Android devices, there is no method works with IOS or windows. To update the firmware, you need to download the firmware apk and connect to the watch via BT, follow the tutorial.

        Why you give us only Аndroid method for firmware upgrading?!? I think that when devices work with both iOS and Android OS, you should provide upgrade method for iOS and Android separately. Not every one of us have both iOS and Android device, and I think this does not speak well for you. Do not get me wrong – I really like my F4 device, but I don’t like the need to look for an Android device just to update the software, because I only use an iOS device.

          Hello Nikolay, thanks for your suggestion. Because this is the limitation of IOS system, it is not developer-friendly as the Android. 😐 I’m sorry that this kind of method only works with Android device, but you can wait for the release of the firmware, you can go to the Fundo Pro app to update the firmware.

      Hello Phat, did you find the steps/sleep report on the watch? If it is recorded on the watch, you just need to connect the watch to your phone and make sure the data has synced to the phone successfully.(You can click the Sync button or unbind and reconnect)

    Hi I’m having trouble using the sleep option? It’s not doing anything over night? I’ve tried just leaving it to log manually & I’ve actually tried clicking on the sleep icon to see if it logs it that way. But it’s not logging anything. 🙁
    I’ve also done the latest update. Thanks

    good afternoon,
    I bought a smartband x2 after I gave the error in the update and I used this rom in it, I was able to install the rom but everything was zapped. The screen of the smatband is 96×96 and these were one of the reasons to get bad with this rom (firmware), how could I make a firmware for me? because I can not use my watch.
