Gypsy update (0206:0214)

I am making this post again as some of you read via email. I always make changes to post lol so better to read on my blog. I know I am impatient and just post and then go back and add and edit even though I have an editing blog. Sassy keeps reminding me to use it. But.... as I said I am impatient!
Well anyway here is the gist of the update again as this update is causing some confusion as seen in the MB
so here goes
First keep your G connected to power.
It should first download data files and green bar moves to 100%

and then it says updating or uploading and then again another green bar - 100% .
At this point check if G says connected.

After that 2nd 100% if nothing happens after 10 mins then close cricut sync. It's ok to do so. Then restart cricut sync.

But if message says do not power off G (and G says connected of course) then allow it to continue. This will take anywhere from 10 - 15 mins.

After that cricut sync goes to show files.

At this point close the cricut sync (only then G will show the icons again or else will show connected) and check G's version should say 0206:0214.

Also try opening cricut sync - just because ! lol
 It should now show - no updates (or something like that)

Then check if some of the new cartridges are there and you are good to go!

I had to try 5 times before I got it.

When traffic is less you will have better luck sometimes

I have just wasted the afternoon trying to get it to update. At the very end, the adobe bridge program throws up and it won't take the info. I haven't updated in a long time (gypsy only) - I'm at 0206:0200. It's really frustrating!!! I don't dare touch the imagine...just want to SCREAM right now! Hugs, Joy

Thanks Pam for doing this before most of us try it! :D Plan on doing the G update but I think I'll now wait a little longer on the I one.
Can't wait for the big update!

I just got a Gypsy. I registered it and could not figure out how to get the five free carts that Provocraft advertised. Any ideas?
