1. Why the upgrade charge?
To add new features and enhancements, we needed to provide our customers with a new base operating system and Kernel. After much consideration, we determined the best way to deliver the new operating system was by sending you a new microSD card with version 2.5 preloaded. We have absorbed as much of the cost as possible but are asking our customers for $20 to upgrade.
2. Will my microRendu still function if I choose not to upgrade?
Simple answer: YES! The Sonicorbiter 2.3 operating system utilized on the microRendu is approaching the end of its development cycle. This means that we will continue to maintain the operating system for general functionality only. However, we will no longer provide application updates and new features going forward. There is no need to update to the next version right away, but we recommend that you consider it at some point in the near future.
3. How difficult is the install? The install is very simple and takes less than 2 minutes to complete.
