    So I bought a new P3P yesterday, Installed the 3 updates for it on the dji website, 1.1.9, 1.3.2, and 1.4.1 or whatever they currently are with success on all 3 updates. BUT when I power on my drone it tells me in the about section that my drone is at firmware level 1.2.6+ and says it needs a battery update.

    What is going on and how do I fix it? Do I need to do an update process on all my batteries for firmware 1.3.2 or 1.4.1?

    Sounds like it hasn't updated the Phantom
    You want to have the about page look like this
    Go back and try to update to v1.4.0010 again, making sure you follow the instructions properly.
    Once you have updated, swap through your other batteries with the firmware on the SD card, power up and wait.
    It only takes a minute or so to do the batteries.
