When in "Prepare" mode - try to power OFF (by pressing front button) the DX for 3-5 sec. Do NOT close "Prepare" window or ESDR3 loader at this stage.

When DX is power back ON - close "Prepare" window and press Start button again in ESDR3 loader (without restarting loader itself)

Perhaps I do it in the wrong order.

1 - Shut down the power of the DX
2 - Push BT button (hold), power up the DX
3 - Start the Firmware Updater in ExpertSDR3
......
Firmware Loader is PREPARING...

Nothing happening.

Someone any other ideas?

If you think it is difficult, then, perhaps, just stop playing with alpha version, return to ESDR2 and wait until ESDR3 release with detailed upgrade manual will be available.

If you wish to continue with alpha, then start with reading alpha version disclaimer; and when finished you may try the following step by step procedure:
1. Start DX (connected to network), wait until it loads. Do not start ESDR3 yet.
2. Reset DX (use RST button on back panel - manual page 14, circle 19)
3. Start ESDR3 loader, go to FW section, press Start button, wait until popup "Preparing" appears.
4. Do NOT close "Preparing" popup, do NOT close ESDR3, press PWR button on front panel of DX (this will switch DX Off) wait 3-5 sec.
5. Press PWR button, switching DX On, wait 5-10 sec, then close "Preparing" popup and press Start button in Loader. The FW upgrade process should start and should be finished in less than 30 sec.

Note, that pressing RST button will return DX to factory IP address as well, hence make sure you Mac IP is within same /24 subnet.

O-o-outstanding.

It would be great if you will be able to describe root cause and resolving steps, so others will not hit the same issue.
Thanks.

Dear Pavel,

Still trying to update my SunSDR2 DX with ecpertsdr3. But no succes.
Now I am stuck with the following issue:
Orange led is always blinking when starting up the tranciever.
Software is not connecting any more with the tranciever.
Can I do a default hard reset?

Kind regards, Tim
