    so i place the BIN file in the root directory of the SD card and the update just never initiates. i find it weird most videos i see of the P3P has this HD symbol by the wifi signal and ive NEVER seen that. been trying to figure this out and i have no clue what to do

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

    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.

    there is no txt file. its just the BIN and the other folder that stores the images/video

    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.

    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.
