    • Step-by-step instructions for installing the firmware update are included in the downloaded file. You must read and follow the instructions precisely. If you miss a step or do not follow the correct order, your update will fail. Fortunately, since Yaesu uses a hardware switch that must be toggled in order to do a firmware update, it is exceptionally unlikely you can “brick” your radio if you mess up the install.
