Xiegu X6100 Firmware Update v1.1.5 (2022-04-18)

April 18, 2022 update;

App: V1.1.5 Apr 10 2022,13:12:01
1. Fix bug: the last character in the string of “AGC mode” is half cut off in MEMO mode
2. Fix bug: not working CW decoder
3. Fix bug: incorrect UTC offset/Time zone
4. Change the range of built-in/handle MIC’s gain:
Old version: range 0~36, default 10; actual gain 0~+18dB, step 0.5dB
This version: range 0~50, default 20; actual gain -10~+15dB, step 0.5dB

Base: V1.1.5 Apr 9 2022,17:14:40
1. Fix bug: battery can’t be fully charged
2. Fix bug: won’t charge at power off state (occasionally)
3. Fix bug: have to switch band or press PTT once at the first time of power up,
or there’s no output RF power
4. Lower the built-in/handle MIC’s gain

Always read the enclosed update log!

Instructions for FW update: Download “Xiegu X6100 Firmware Update Tutorial” and “SD Card Creation Too”l needed for updating of FW separately, see below (if you already did the 4 full charge and full discharge cycles you can ignore the below instruction).

ATTENTION: If you have firmware older than the previous January 17 update, please see the below information regarding the battery management update;

1. The built-in battery gauge is enabled to manage the battery cell. After the upgrade, the battery voltage will no longer be used as the management data, but the battery capacity measured by the battery gauge will be used as the management data. The relevant precautions are as follows:

1.1 After updating the firmware, please perform 4 full charge and full discharge cycles in a row, after which the fuel gauge will measure accurately. Just after updating the firmware, before the 4 times of charge and discharge are completed, the displayed power error is large, so don’t pay attention to it. The charging process should be kept as continuous as possible until the charging instruction is completed, which is conducive to the accurate capacity determination of the fuel gauge.

1.2 The updated charging indicator status is as follows:
Blinking: Indicates charging
Steady on: Indicates that charging is complete
Off: When the charging option is turned off in the menu, the indicator light will not be on.

1.3 After the update, when the power is lower than 10%, the battery symbol shows red and the interior is empty, and the device will automatically shut down.

1.4 The battery voltage is no longer used as the basis for the judgment of low battery.

Xiegu X6100 Firmware Update v1.1.4 (2022-02-19)

February 2022 update;

App: V1.1.4 Feb 16 2022,17:15:50
1. Add FFT peak hold switch, GEN > DISPLAY SETTING > FFT PK HOLD
2. Fix bug “Gate Way” can’t save in “WLAN” setting page
3. Change rx volume from 0-50 to 0-55(5dB more than prev version)
4. Change CW decoder’s threshold to a higher level(better robustness but needs higher SNR)
5. Calibrate the RX S-Meter giving more accuracy
6. Add ALC level indicator(at the top-right of the bandscope area, below the tx power strings)
7. Optimize the Fw flashing logic(base board will boot-up itself after flashed the Fw)

Base: V1.1.4 Feb 15 2022,13:19:59
1. Fix bug built-in MIC feedback to speaker sometimes
2. Fix bug base board some times not booting at power on
3. Optimize ALC algorithm
4. Optimize SWR algorithm, less jumping around
5. Optimize switching power synchronization algorithm, less birdies

G90 Firmware 1.78b (2022-01-19)

Xiegu G90 Firmware 2022-01-19 v1.78b base unit upgrade (head v1.77b).

File: G90_MainUnit_FW_V1.78b01
SHA-256: CDAB25C6EEAA9FFF9C9D5C39A2A965F163888DD7913C40FCE75CC913545E4C9A

1. Fine tuning of AGC algorithm to improve audio quality
2. Fix some issues of ALC algorithm
2.1 Tx power more accurate
2.2 Fix the issue that ATU inaccurate or fail to tune due to the instability of ALC algorithm
3. AM tx power equ to set power
4. Display ALC level range 0-100,tips:
4.1 ALC level equ to 0: over driving, decrease input signal level
4.2 ALC level equ to 100: under driving, increase input signal level
4.3 When doing Digi,the audio baseband signals are almost constant amplitude,
adjust the soundcard volume to make ALC level between 20-80 to get good linearity
5. Fix a built-in keyer bug(has chances losing dot/dash when performing squeeze operation)

File: G90_DispUnit_FW_V1.78b01
SHA-256: 79B20BD5F6E4705C4EEDB735A16777C1FF5F4D25B1BED088A8FBBAC052D1DC8E

1. Add CI-V command for ATU operation

G90 Firmware 1.78

Xiegu G90 Firmware 2021-12-31 v1.78 base unit upgrade (head v1.77b).

Be sure to upgrade the MainUnit and DispUnit firmware at the same time!

Release Notes:

  1. Added the receiving audio Modification filter to improve the sound quality and suppress high-frequency noise components.
  2. Improved the AGC algorithm to eliminate the spike noise caused by it.
  3. Improve the granularity of volume adjustment, the volume value of 0-26 is stepped to 1dB, and the volume value of 27-36 is stepped to 2dB.

The updated version number is as follows (located in the tenth item of the system menu):

Cheat Sheet v1.75

This cheat sheet is intended to augment the current G90 user manual (and there are several versions) and reflects the G90’s functionality with version ‘V1.75 Final’ of its firmware. Use the first column to look up the various G90 controls or buttons. Use the second column to look up the G90 supported functions (i.e. RF Gain, VOX, etc.). Also, see the release notes at the very end to get an idea when various features first appeared in the G90 firmware.

G90 Firmware v1.73

This file has the latest firmware update for Xiegu G90 including instructions to perform the update.

IMPORTANT: There are two files to update, the file labeled “G90_MainUnit_FW_V…” should be uploaded to the main unit using the COM connector on the back side of the G90. The other file labeled “G90_DispUnit_FW_V…” should be uploaded to the display unit with the serial cable connected to the lower 3.5 mm jack on the left side of the front panel.

After successful update, cycle power by turning the radio off, then remove 12 volt for five or more  seconds before turning it on again.

Whats new in 1.7.3 (this version;)

  1. Rotate encoder driver is optimised, more smoother and less losing of step
  2. Total RF GAIN=1/4 RF GAIN setting when AGC is off, prevent sudden volume increase
  3. Rx volume step is optimised
  4. Lower the MIC GAIN,prevent picking up too much background noise

Whats new in 1.7.2 (experimental version)

  1. CW timing is optimised, solved the issue of randomly losing DOT/DASH.
  2. T/R switch timing is optimised, faster switching time (t<=53ms).
  3. Add ALC meter, display below the TX power meter when TXing. It is mainly for digital mode, to get the good linearity. adjust driving level or Line IN volume to make the ALC meter value within 30~90. Max level of Line IN should not be more than 600mVp-p, or it will overload the input amplifier.
  4. PO meter is optimised, more accurate.
  5. Rotate encoder driver is optimised, less losing of steps.
  6. ACC LINE OUT is optimised, main volume will not effect its output level anymore.
  7. ACC Band Voltage switching output is optimised, solved the issue of wrong voltage for 12m band.
  8. TS max digit change from 10k to 100k when pushing the main knob.
  9. RIT function added: Press and hold main knob to activate.
