  2. Using File Explorer, copy Fwload.lnk, Fwloader.exe, E61645_lan01_enc_pcl09.hex and sloader_flash_pcl09.hex from the compact flash card to the \Temp directory.
  3. Make sure power is applied to the terminal.
  4. Tap on fwload in the \Temp directory. This will invoke the loader and update the firmware.
  5. Just let the program run (do not remove power), which will take over 5 minutes.
  6. If the status box says it completed, then the radio upgrade is complete.
