Things To Remember

There are a few important things to remember when installing the firmware update. 

Make sure that the Ronin App is the latest version when updating the firmware. Visit https://www.dji.com/ronin-s/info#downloads

Leave the Ronin-S turned off and update the firmware through the DJI Pro Assistant for Ronin by connecting the USB-C port on the Ronin-S to your computer. Then proceed with the firmware update. Do not disconnect the gimbal from the computer while updating.

After the update is complete, unplug the USB-C cable from the Ronin-S and proceed to turn on the gimbal.

If the Ronin-S has a camera attached and is turned on while updating the firmware, make sure to protect.
