    IMPORTANT: There is a known error in the version 0x0108 of the AxC_SWD5G that is contained in this package.

    To “repair” your AxC-SWD5G card if the save function of your AVBx frame dose not work after this update, please follow steps below:

    1. Wait for your AVBx frame to start-up (the one where the faulty AxC-SWD5G is slotted in)
    2. Using a thin needle, push the hardware reset button (typically 10~15s) until the front-panel leds lights-up one after another counterclockwise.
    3. Then, start AVSMonitor. Once your Toolbox frame shows-up, select it and push « Ctrl+W », OR use “device function->write to flash”. Both actions will save the toolbox state. This is important to not restart the toolbox between point 2 and the end of point 3.

    From now you can save your toolbox and upgrade your AxC_SWD5G card.

    If you have any trouble, please, contact us.
