XeedSystem updatefor ISOBUS users
From April 2023, XeedGATE HW ver 1.3 and 1.5 are being replaced by the new XeedGATE HW ver 2.0. The new XeedGATE requires the latest (1.10.0) software package, earlier software versions can’t be applied on it.
New USB upgrade method
Upgrading XeedSystem using USB stick will be simpler and easier in the future. Future firmware packages will be released as a single ‘.dfp’ file. No more multiple hex files for different devices and no more multiple file formats for iPad and ISOBUS users. New ‘.dfp’ file contains not just all firmware files of the system, but all other neccessary meta information for the system in one.
HOW TO UPGRADE YOUR EXISTING SYSTEM
Upgrade your existing system to the latest software version (1.10.x) from 1.8.2 or earlier in 2 steps:
1. upgrade XeedGATE first to the latest version (still using the old methed)
2. upgrade the rest of the system (using the currently updated XeedGATE and the new method)
Please select the ‘XG__03xx.hex’ file first from the USB folder of the zip file below and copy it to the root of your USB stick.
Power off your XeedGATE, plug the USB stick to the USB socket of it on the back side and power it again. The upgrade process will start.
Once it is done, please move forward to step 2.
Select the ‘0110xxxx.dfp’ file from the DFP folder of the zip file. Be sure that you removed everything else from the root folder of your USB stick and copy the selected DFP file into it.
Power off the XeedGATE again, plug the USB stick and power it up again. The remaining part of the upgrade process will be taken.
HOW TO SETUP YOUR NEW SYSTEM ON XeedGATE HW 2.0

The new XeedGATE HW 2.0 is shipped with the latest software package (1.10.x), but other components of the system may still require to be upgraded.
