Gekkota OS for SMT210

RELEASE NOTE

IMPORTANT: In case you wish to upgrade your SMT210 devices from Gekkota 3 middleware (3.12.XX) to Gekkota 4 middleware (4.10.1X), it is highly recommended to contact Qeedji to know the impact of this migration. Check also the software compatibilities below, and remember that you won’t be allowed to downgrade to a Gekkota 3 middleware afterwards. The specific SMT210 RMA (or Return Merchandise Authorization) consisting in downgrading the middleware Gekkota 4 back to the middleware Gekkota 3 is not covered by the warranty of the device

Never make electric unplug on your player while software upgrade is in progress (green led blinking 6 times every 4 seconds) else the player may not be able to work properly
