This procedure is to assist with the loading of the latest firmware for your transceiver. Please take all precautions to assure you are loading the proper firmware for your radio. Load new and experimental software at your own risk.

Here is the procedure for updating the Firmware of the MD-380/390 DMR transceivers.
The latest Firmware and Software for your radio can be downloaded directly from the TYT Website.

After downloading the proper files for your radio, you will need to unzip them to a work folder. The file you need to execute is Upgrade.exe
