We are now offering the latest Android 5.1.1 Lollipop version on all of our mobile devices, Impact X, Gravity X and Orbit X. Android 5.1.1 Lollipop has many new features, including security, usability, battery improvement and stability to mention a few. These benefits will also apply to Orbit X as soon as the new software is installed. New software also mean some new features, and for Orbit X we have a new setup app as well as some new LED status colors. The Orbit X setup app is also available on any Android device (4.4 or newer) from Google Play, and Impact X and Gravity X users also get access to the latest version when they update their device.

Update process

 

Detailed description with images can be found here. Make sure your device is connected to a high speed Wi-Fi and connect the device to charger. Use the Wi-Fi LED as guide (this should be green) The update is around 400 MB and downloading will therefore take some time. If the device enters standby (Yellow LED blinking around every 5th second), it will still download in the background. After the download, The Orbit X will reboot 2-3 times and if your Orbit X device has green LED light when booted (instead of yellow) you have Android 5.1.1 Lollipop installed. Also, for Lollipop, the calling color of the LED has changed from green (older Android versions) to cyan. You can also check the software version on the Orbit X app and on Collaboration X. Connect to Wi-Fi and the devices will automatically check for new updates and install them. Potential pitfalls include, restricted Wi-Fi network, low battery or custom firmware (only a very few devices has this). If you have any questions, feel free to contact us at sales@bartec-pixavi.com.
