In this tutorial, we’ll show you how to update the Firmware of your DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2.0.
Before you start, you’ll need to ensure the following:
- You have download and installed the latest version of DJI GO 4 app in the App Store or Google Play on your smartphone.
- Your battery level is higher than 50%. The firmware update will fail if the aircraft’s or remote controller’s battery power is less than 50%.
There are two different ways to update your DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 firmware: Via the DJI GO 4 app or via the DJI Assistant 2. When updating via DJI Assistant 2, please note that the aircraft and remote controller must be updated separately.
Via the DJI GO 4 app
Remove the gimbal clamp.
Connect the remote controller to a mobile device and make sure that your mobile or tablet is connected to the internet.
Turn on the aircraft and remote controller.
Launch DJI GO 4 app.
The DJI GO 4 app will automatically detect the newest firmware update and you will see a ‘New firmware update available!” notification at the top of the screen. Tap the notification to enter the update screen.
Once you’re on the update screen, click the ‘Download Now’ button. The firmware will automatically download and begin updating.
When ‘Update Complete’ appears onscreen, the firmware update is finished. Simply click OK once it appears.
If multiple flight batteries need to be updated, insert each additional battery into the aircraft and update separately.
Once you’ve inserted the battery, an ‘Inconsistent Firmware Found’ notification will be shown. Simply slide the slide bar and the drone will automatically update the corresponding module.
After the updates have been successful, restart the aircraft.
Via DJI Assistant 2 – Aircraft
Connect the Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 to the PC via a USB cable.
Turn on the drone.
On your computer, launch DJI Assistant 2 and log in to your DJI account. Your computer must be connected to the internet and have the latest version of DJI Assistant 2 installed.
Wait until the firmware list is shown on the screen and click “UPGRADE” and update the aircraft’s firmware – from there, follow the on-screen instructions. Do not turn off the aircraft or touch the USB cable during the update.
Via DJI Assistant 2 – Remote Controller
Connect the remote controller to the PC via a USB cable.
Turn on the remote controller.
Head back to your PC and click on the connected device.
Like the aircraft update, click “UPGRADE” on the firmware update screen. From there, follow the on-screen instructions until the remote controller is fully updated.
Now your DJI Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 aircraft and remote controller are ready to go and you can get back in the skies with the latest firmware.
