How-To
Re-Flash Tool
• Remember that Re-flash can be avoided by using the latest
Spyder Tool (version 5.200 or later)
- Only exception is if you desire new features and you have an
earlier firmware Spyder, then you MUST flash forward AND use the
new tool to gain those features
• Download the Re-flash tool from the Forum
- Run the executable and the re-flash program plus all current re-
flash images will be installed
The re-flash tool will expire on April 1st of every year to ensure that
only current customers have access to flashing Spyder devices.
The first date of expiration is 2013
• Re-Flash will erase the control program as well as any
bindings or balancing data
- Perform an upload of that data if it hasn’t previously been done
- Plan sufficient time to re-download/re-bind all re-flashed devices
