    I was going through the FW update steps as follows
    Hold Function button down
    Power on
    Radio displayed "Erasing Firmware"
    Plugged in USB to copy the file
    Windows 10 said USB device not recognized
    Plugged and unplugged usb cable a few times with no luck
    Restarted radio and it's bricked
    HELLLLP!!!

    Hi. I just did the same thing. But.. I got it back after a couple of tries. First verify your serial number and that you have the correct firmware. Mine is the outdoor version with the first digit being a 1 but within the range that had it's own update.
    When you dl the file it is a zip file. You have to unpack it first and not install the zipped file onto the x108 like I did. Mine had to files one was a .pdf and the other was the firmware.
    After I installed the wrong file the PC would not recognize the x108 drive properly. It would let me start the file but it was only loading fragments. I kept trying and powering off the x108 and the per supply. Finally use another PC and it took. There seem to be some guys here that understand this rig way better than me. Good luck. 73
