Update ICOM Firmware Error Solved


This is the solution I find when I have trouble in updating my car diagnostic scanner BMW ICOM A firmware. Hope this helps you also.

I’m trying to update my ICOM firmware but I can only update the System/Boot firmware. Every time I try to update the Application firmware, I get a server timeout, no matter which browser I use.
