**Errors & Live Mod devices with 20160105-001 and older firmware**

After 20160105 we included a critical change in the firmware which requires users to update the firmware on their device past 20160105 twice in order to activate the change. Please perform steps 1-9 above twice if you are using 20160105 and older FW. After updating further updates will only require a single installation.
