This should be a flase judgment, please first disable your Windows Defender, enable it after you upgrade the firmware. Thanks.

My HD1 will not go into DFU mode. When I press PTT+side key1 and turn on the radio, the screen stays blank and the red LED light comes on at the top of the radio. I have also moved USB ports but still cannot connect for FW update no matter what com or usb port I try. Current FW is 1.71

1.7.7 caused it to continually reboot. I originally had 1.6.4 and tried to update to 1.7.7 directly. Backed it up to 1.7.2 and it was fine. Thinking that it just wouldn't take the upgrade across multiple upgrades, decided to try 1.7.7 again. Same symptom. Reboots constantly with no back light, and no sounds. Have to use a flashlight to tell it is rebooting. Went back to 1.7.2. Working fine again. Maybe 1.7.7 is not ready for primetime yet. I have the HD1 GPS Version.

I am having the same issue. I used the software to download my codeplug, then when I tried to install the new firmware, I get an error message saying check connection. I tried a dozen times and can not update firmware. frustrating because it was easy in the past.

Good morning Team Ailunce. Last year my original HD-1 got killed due to an interruption of data, when my hotspot received a transmission and my radio received it also. That radio is completely dead now. I had extensive contact with Yolanda on several Zoom contacts, but she was unable to resolve the issue, so I purchased a 2nd HD-1. I would like to send you my original HD-1 for service please. Please advise me where to send it, Thankyou. Vicente serial #hd11100989

Hello Loading either version of the HD1 Software FW Updater Tool makes my Norton Software report that the software has a trojan virus installed in it.. Needless to say it won't let me install the FW updater tool.

When downloading firmware/software it may show a virus, this is down to digital signing issues and is 100% safe. You can ignore it directly and put it in your computer white list.
