Firmware upgrade for the KeyPhantom USB Home (KP-USB-301).
- "Firmware upgrading" allows you to upgrade the software, or operating system, contained inside your KeyPhantom.
- This procedure allows extra features and/or security updates to be applied to your product.
- You can upgrade the firmware in your KeyPhantom by running a special Windows™ utility (see the steps below).
- This procedure takes 3-4 minutes.
- This procedure is straightforward, and very safe.
Step 1: Download The Windows™ Utility
Step 2: Install the Windows™ Utility
Click "Next" on the wizard, until the software is installed under Windows.
Step 3: Execute the Windows™ Utility
Select "Start > All Programs > KeyPhantom USB Windows Toolkit > KeyPhantom USB Firmware Upgrade".
Step 4: Apply Firmware Upgrade to Device
- Click "Next" until the utility has upgraded the firmware contained in your KeyPhantom USB.
- You may notice that the caps lock/num lock lights flash during the upgrade. This is normal; it is the method used to verify the firmware upgrade.
Step 5: Verify Version Upgrade
The firmware version should be newer, as shown in the diagram below.
- For your reference, you can download and install older versions of the KeyPhantom Firmware Upgrade utilities, v2.0.3 and v2.1.2. These utilities only work on Windows 2000 or XP.
- If your unit is not recognized, you can force it into "emergency firmware upgrade mode" by shorting a pin on the circuitboard at bootup, for more information see emergency firmware upgrade (this page refers to the newer KeyCarbon USB; the same information applies to the KeyPhantom USB).
- To force a low level reformat of the flash, load v2.0.3 of the firmware into the unit, followed by v2.1.2 (see links above). If this does not work, contact technical support.
