GigRig Android Updater 3.png
Works only with Google Chrome on PC, MAC, Android (not iOS)

Please ensure that you have the latest version of the app and during the process your iOS device remains turned on and close to your G3/Atom which also needs to remain powered
1. Check the current version of software in your unit by going to the MENU/GLOBAL/VERSION. If the number matches the number above, you have the latest software. If the version you have has a lower number, you can update your software. PLEASE NOTE, the higher the number, the newer the software
2. Download the latest software (links above) to your iOS device. In your iOS device, turn on AIRPLANE mode, then turn on BLUETOOTH. This ensures no interruptions while doing the update. Backup your G3. You don't have to do this but I find its good practice to have a backup before an update. Now we are ready to do the update
3. On G3/Atom go to MENU/GLOBAL/BLUETOOTH and select UPDATE. This will start the Bluetooth on G3/Atom
4. Open the app, Then press CONNECT. Select your G3/Atom in the list, once connected, hit DISMISS
5. Select UPDATE on the app
6. At the top of the app, you'll see FIRMWARE FILES. Select the latest update file from the list
8. Take note of how many packets are being sent
9. After the update has finished transferring, check the CHECKSUM 11. As long as you have the correct checksum, follow the onscreen prompts to install your software If you've done a backup then you can do a factory reset and reinstall your back up. This isn't 100% necessary but if you do find you have any issues with a particular press after the software update, simply clear that preset and re-program it.
