!!! I am not responsible for Failed Firmware Updates, Failed updates are not covered by warranty so continue on own risk !!
First, download and extract the required files :
Then, open the “Download_Tool” folder and install the application,
At the license agreement, first scroll down and then accept and agree:
once installed, open the installation folder and copy the “FlashDeviceParameters.txt” file in the installation folder :
(! Don’t use the FlashDeviceParameters.txt file in the “DDP442X Download_Tool” folder, use the file in the zip’s root instead)
by default :
64bit: c:/program files(x86)/DLP Composer Lite 11.0.1
32bit: c:/program files/DLP Composer Lite 11.0.1
Make sure the file is called “FlashDeviceParameters” or the program won’t work. When copied open the DLPLite program :
When DLPLite opened, go to Edit-> preferences:
Go to “Communications” and select “USB”, the vendor and product should already be the same as mine :
when correct, click OK. then in the left side of the program click “Flash Loader” :
A warning may come up, just click OK,
Now disconnect the power cable and connect your pc to your beamer/projector using the USB -> Mini-USB cable, Always plug your cable directly in your PC and avoid using a hub.
When connected, hold the “power” and the “auto” button while plugging the power cable back in. The status LED should turn RED, if not try again… firmware updates can only be installed when the LED is RED:
After a while, windows should install the drivers, this should take about a minute or 2 :
When all drivers are installed, go back to the DLPLite program. Select your downloaded firmware image, choose “complete image download” and check “skip bootloader area”… change this to 32kb!
DOUBLE CHECK YOUR SETTINGS, WRONG SETTINGS WILL BREAK YOUR BEAMER!
When the settings are correct, click “Reset Bus”,
Then click “Start Download”:
the last warning will pop up before updating your beamer:
Click “yes” and the update should start… wait and don’t touch your beamer/pc until the download is finished, in my case this took 2.54 minutes:
Your beamer is now updated, Disconnect the USB cable and turn on your beamer… for the first time, leave your beamer on for about 2 minutes since the firmware needs some configuration time… then put in your settings and your beamer is ready.
*Still no 1080p 60hz, try changing your HDMI cable.

SBS 1080p 60HZ will only work if your “color system” is RGB, the problem can be software(Outdated firmware, unsupported GPU,…) and hardware(HDMI cable, Switch,…)
