When you turn on the system, you must hold down the User 2 button while
flipping the on switch. Wait till the Update ROM
screen comes up, then run the executable.
Never having updated before, I was trying it yesterday. It took over 24
hours to get to line 6000. Then Gary Barbour at
Ten Tec gave me the clue about User 2. I could not find it anywhere on
RF Squared or in my version of the manual.
After I did it the correct way, it took about 3 minutes.
I still could not get the Verification to work, but I seem to remember
that it does not work as expected.
