Put together a new machine, showing 1.14 version firmware. After installing from the moai-20180315.zip version shows as V1.15.

Also don’t see “CompensateX 100 or CompensateY 200” .

As it did update my machine can only think it is the wrong .bin flie.

Got mine from: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1acyCMmZ...

Anyone have V1.16 running and if so where did you get the file?

Thanks,

this didn’t work for me either. Used the included (Kingston) card to try to update from 1.1.15 to 1.1.16. Tried everything including re-formatting. I see the logo but then it just flashes and goes straight to the start screen like normal.

this did not work. No update, no black screen, it just loaded up as normal. followed exact instructions with a kingston SD card.
