    Just did a firmware update, now the four outer LED lights won't turn on after power cycling my Phantom and my H3-3D gimbal is unresponsive.

    There is a red solid light being displayed inside the housing, with another small yellow LED flashing.

    Did this upgrade brick my Phantom / Gimbal?

    Firmware showing and garbage characters looks like a bad flash. One way to try and correct this is to use a previous version of the Assistant to flash earlier firmware, then reflash the latest one. Download Assistant 2.0 from the DJI website and try putting the older firmware on, then you can try again with the latest one.
