    Default APX MPL Enhancement

    New to APX CPS but not to programing Motorola. APX 6000 with r 08.01.00 i think. I would love to get the MPL Enhancement but my Chief is my contact with our Motorola rep. So i'm not always getting great answers to my questions. Is R 08.07.00 an update i can upload via my CPS or does my Chief need to buy? Thanks sorry it was a little wordy.

    MPL enhancement is a free upgrade. It's included in firmware >R08.07.00. Firmware upgrades to the APX are FREE.

    You require APX CPS R08.02.00 or newer.

    Firmware files are available here: https://www.p25.ca/forums/77-Firmware-Files-Motorola

    Attached is a firmware upgrade matrix, so you know which CPS version matches up with which firmware file. If you attempt to use R09.05.00 firmware (latest) with old CPS, it will likely puke.

    Also, I have moved your post from the firmware/CPS release notes forum/thread, into a new post in the APX area. Thanks.

    Thanks for the quick reply. I'm not at work. So, i'm not 100% on the version r.08 i'm sure of. But 08.01.00 or 08.00.01 not sure. So i would need to upgrade to 08.02.00 then upgrade to 08.07.00. Thanks for the information. Hard to find info on Motorola and their Learning Management site is not set up for me to access yet.

    If you have a software subscription for the APX, simply download the latest CPS and firmware versions from MOL, and update the radio. It's a very painless procedure.

    Found r09 updates on MOL. We are still in the first 3 years of our license so i can get up dates. Need to do some more searching on MOL to find r08.07.00 up dates though. Thanks been a great help. I would love to not brick a radio.

    You do not require old software/firmware. Updating to the latest includes all previous updates listed in the spreadsheet above.

    Get R09.xx.xx CPS, and download Host R09.05.00, and you'll be fine..

    i found r09.xx.xx CPS on MOL. It lists a price. Do i need to call to get a link to down load new version or am i missing where i need to go. Sorry not at work to ask my boss if he knows. Want to give him the proper info if he needs it. My access is through him. Thanks for all the help. Im still a newb at some of this stuff. Mostly self taught. When i break it i learn to fix it when possible.

    Thanks for the info. I found the instructions on how to get the CPS off of MOL. So now waiting for the disk and going to upgrade CPS then Flash firmware. Again thanks for answering my questions.
