Was your Phantom running as expected before you attempted to update the firmware?

so i place the BIN file in the root directory of the SD card and the update just never initiates.
Do you see a TXT file in the root of the memory card after attempting to install the update?

How do you check for the TXT file? You'll find it in the root of the memory card after you connect it to a computer via some type of memory card reader.

Try following my instructions again. They are extremely detailed, so make sure you read and follow each step carefully.

If the update fails again, please let me know exactly which step failed (and what didn't work as documented).

If it is already at the current rev. level it won't do anything.

when i put the SD card in the Phantom and turn it on. it never initiates the update. it just boots normal and thats it.
What's the full filename of the BIN file in the root of your memory card?

A TXT log file will be created in the root of the memory card even when attempting to install the currently installed version. The OP is not seeing that, so this must not be the issue.
