ROM Upgrade Details OS Update Pre-setup Before beginning update of the OS: • Backup important data located on the Nova5000. This drive will be formatted during OS Update and all data will be deleted. • If ActiveSync software is installed on your PC, disable connections by launching the ActiveSync software and going to File > Connection Settings, unselecting the Allow USB connection check box and clicking OK. • Download the OS Update folder located on the Nova5000 Download Center. This folder includes the latest OS Image, the Nova5000 Update application and a utility named UsbMLink. OS Update Setup 1. Make sure the USB sync cable is disconnected and ActiveSync is disabled on your PC (see Pre-setup instructions). 2. Open the rear case of the Nova5000 unit. Press the OS Update button together with the Hard Reset button. Immediately release the Hard Reset button but continue to hold the OS Update button for at least ten seconds. After ten seconds, release the OS Update button. 3. Following step 2, the Nova5000's LCD screen will appear black, with no graphics of any kind. If you see any other screen, such as the Nova5000 splash screen (the startup graphic) then there is a problem and you must repeat steps 1-2 above. 4. Reconnect the USB sync cable between the PC (USB host) and Nova5000 (USB slave). Wait at least five seconds, and then launch the file named Nova Flash Utility.exe, downloaded together with the OS image from the Fourier Systems website. This launches the OS Update application. Note: Make sure the UsbMLink.exe file is located in the same folder as the Flash utility. Updating the OS Image 1. After launching the OS Update application in step 4 above, the OS Update main window will open. 2. Make sure the path in the Selected OS update file field points to the location of the OS Image file. The OS Image file must have the extension .BIN. The name of the file itself does not matter. 3. To update the OS Image, press the Update OS Image button. The application will first test the connection between the PC and the Nova5000. A progress bar will monitor this test and a message will appear in the Status pane confirming a successful test. Note: If the test connection failed, this probably means that at least five seconds did not elapse between connecting the USB cable and launching the OS Update application. 4. When the update process itself begins, another progress bar will appear. A successful update will be confirmed by another message in the Status pane. 5. Once the OS Image update has finished, the OS Update procedure itself is complete.
