Updating the Litepanels Gemini Firmware

The Litepanels Gemini is an amazing LED light fixture, but in order to get the most out of it, you need to update the firmware. This is very easy to do. Just follow the steps below.

  1. Grab a USB thumb drive
  2. Format it with a Windows computer to FAT32 (this is important!)
  3. Go to this website to enter some info and get the downloadable file. You will need to scroll down to find the clickable button on the page.
  4. Put the .hex file on the FAT32 formatted USB thumb drive. Have nothing else on the drive.
  5. Plug in and turn on the Gemini.
  6. Insert the thumb drive into the USB slot on the top of the Gemini. (lift open the rubber cap)
  7. Press the menu knob and scroll down to "Settings" then "USB" then "Firmware".
  8. Follow the on screen prompt and press the knob in to start the update. It takes about a minute and the little LED indicator next to the main power switch should flash between green and red.
  9. Little LED goes green, firmware update done. Pull the thumb drive, replace the rubber cap on port and turn off Gemini.
  10. Turn on Gemini and push in the menu knob. You should see another option here to get into "Lighting Effects". Enjoy!
