FX-Framework Rescue Instructions

About:
The rescue system is a use in case of emergency where the system is unable to boot the normal firmware. Typical reasons could be caused from a lose of power during the normal flashing procedure. If you have installation problems that create a no video/audio sitution doing these steps will not resolve those issues.

You will need to use a device that has WIFI capabilities to upload the firmware. A laptop or desktop with built in WIFI is the best option but you can also use Android and Apple phones. Make sure these devices are on the latest IOS/Android versions.

Downloading the latest firmware

Download the latest stable to a device that has WIFI capabilities:
