List of files to extract from the zip: * ‘README.txt’ * ‘system-v1.3.19.squashfs’ * ‘sysupgrade’

If you are unsure how to extract files from a zip please see these instructions: https://www.wikihow.tech/Extract-Zip-Files

Instructions

Download the zip file above to your local PC.

Extract the all three files from the zip, titled ‘README.txt’, ‘sysupgrade’ and ‘system-v1.3.19.squashfs’ (total-of-~345MiB).

Copy all these files onto an empty FAT32 formatted USB stick or SD card (“the-medium”). If in doubt use a small-volume USB stick as these are most likely to be formatted as FAT32.

Ensure your Canute 360 is turned off.

Put the medium in the Canute. If using an SD card be sure to put it in the correct way, which is with the connectors facing up and towards the Canute.

Turn it on using the switch at the back. The Canute will now go through the upgrade procedure.

It should take between five and fifteen minutes, but if it takes longer let it run to at least 30 minutes to make sure.

The Canute will display messages informing you of upgrade progress. If you do not get an initial message on the top line of the display within a few minutes the upgrade is not running.

Once it is done you will be instructed by a message on the display to remove the medium. At this stage you can remove the medium and turn off the Canute.

Then turn the Canute back on again. It will take five minutes to start up again the first time after an upgrade, after which it can be used as normal.

Once it is done please put the medium back in your PC and copy the new log file (called-‘sysupgrade.log’) to your desktop for safe keeping. It may be useful if there is a problem with your Canute later.

Now you can delete all files from the medium.
