neither in the quick-start guide, nor here nor qflipper does it say, that an sd-card is required for updating the firmware.
To be fair, it is stated here: https://docs.flipperzero.one/basics/firmware-update
but only if you scroll down. Maybe I’m to blame, since I did only read until:
Installing the qFlipper
- Download the program from the website Flipper Zero Update Page.
- Download the installation file for your operating system. (supported versions Windows 10 и 11).
- Run the installation file and follow the instructions before downloading qflipper and starting the update.
I started the update without an sc-card. After the updater was stuck for 30 mins I found out that the sd-card is needed and quit the updating by pressing back and left. Now the flipper doesnt work anymore… I guess and hope I can run the repair feature after I bought an sd-card.
Why does qflipper not remind you that an sd-card is needed for updating? why does it even start the updating process without an sd-card?
