Latest firmware for 3.5" Insignia Internet Media Display

Hi, 

 

Can anyone point me to where I can download the most recent version of firmware for the 3.5" Insignia Internet Media Display (NS-DP3CH)?  I'm on firmware 1.03 and I think there is at least 1.07 available.

 

Also, some steps on how to apply the update would be much appreciated.

 

Thanks!

I see no indication of a software update.  But you can poke around here if you want:

Yeah, I don't see any updates listed on that page for the 3.5"

 

However, browsing the forums I saw a link to this firmware:

 

http://files.chumby.com/firmware/infocast3.5/1.0.7/rom-falconwing.img.zip

 

This appears to be the 1.0.7 update, however I can't figure out how to apply this to my device (which according to the info screen is still on 1.0.3.)

 

Also, the link above was posted last July, so I was curious about whether there is a newer update that could be applied.

 

Thanks!

I have not performed a manual update, but understand it is done via USB drive.  Perhaps the instructions here would provide enough guidance:

Thanks. From that link I found this one:

Which seems to indicate that 1.0.7 is the newest.

Given that the insignia page did not mention the software, I start to wonder if the "chumby" software is potentially different.  My assumption has always been that, for the infocast 3.5, the software is the same.  I still assume that the chumby software will work on the infocast.  Those updates look interesting.  I think I will try the update myself.

I'd be surprised if the Chumby firmware worked.  However the one I posted in my initial link should work.

 

My impression is that the real Chumby's automatically update firmware, but the Insignia ones had to be manually updated.
