    Firmware updates - outdoor version only !!
    • outdoor_version_of_X108G_firmware_update_build024.rar
    • outdoor_version_of_X108G_firmware_update_build015.rar ->OLED !!

    • Update description
      This firmware solves the problem that when your computer is
      connected with your outdoor version of X108G via USB, the X108G
      can not be transmitted via the software instructions, so that you can
      control the X108G via the corresponding software.
    • Firmware update tutorial:
      1. Press the frequency knob (keep the action), turn on, connect the
        USB cable to the computer.
      2. Open “ My computer”, there is a Update X108 (*:) mobile
        storage device.
      3. Open Update X108 (*), delete the file, this time on the radio will show delete progress (waiting for progress to complete 100%).
      4. Copy the latest firmware to the Update X108 (*:) to wait for
        replication to complete, and then disconnect the USB and the
        computer.
      5. Restart X108G, firmware update is completed!

    Hi again folks,

    I downloaded the new firmware file for my X108G (outdoor). Got quite a scare when I saw the radio deleting the firmware file on the radio. The simple directions in the text file don't clearly mention that's going to happen!! Then I got a second scare when I saw that the downloaded file was NOT a "bin" file but rather an "xgf" file. I figured "No way that's going to work!!" Spent a fair bit of time reading before deciding to try it. Why the author of the document didn't mention the new file would be an xgf is beyond me!!

    Anyway, it upgraded fine once I got past that bump. Now I have one question... When turning on the radio I see the firmware reports as the SAME as before - "1.00.3a" Only the date is different. It now states "Nov 16 2015" instead of "Aug 10 2015" If it's a new version why didn't the revision number change? That's just weird!! Anybody have any communication with the developer about this?

    I tested a couple of the problem areas and clearly I do have the new version. (eg my A=B button now works)

    Looking forward to trying this little beastie on transmit later...

    Yes, I did, and everything is working just fine, it even has a new menu item, # 15 if you scroll down.

    All we need now is a TUNE menu, for an automatic tuner....;)

    Have fun !

    Hi Guys - Just registered as i have a bricked X108G.
    I was having a weird software problem - the radio would crash when i pressed the button to work split and sometimes i would turn the knob and the the frequency would keep changing after i took my hand away.
    Anyway - contacted Xiegu and they sent me the V1 build 24 file. Installed it as the instructions and now the radio is bricked with a white screen.

    The process i used was this:
    I connect the radio to the computer - I have tried both Windows XP and MacOS.
    I hold the knob in and turn on - i get to the update screen.
    The radio mounts as E: - I delete the firmware.bin file.
    The radio flash erase to 100% = Flash Erase OK
    I copy the file : X108G_OLED_FW_V1.00_build024.xgf - to the radio. ( have tried others and just attempted the V2 build10.)
    Writing flash - 137728 bytes - Update done!
    Please reset your rig.

    I turn the rig off - disconnect the USB from the computer and turn the rig on and the screen is white - no boot beep.The small green light at the mic port is lit.
    That is all it does - the radio is now dead.

    Am i missing something - or doing something stupid?
    Any help would be really appreciated.
    Thanks in advance.

    Do u have the INDOOR or OUTDOOR version of the x-108G - this is crucial. You need the correct / appropriate firmware. Please review what version you have and check it out here

    thats OK Finger

    I have always assumed it was the outdoor version - it has the little handles on the four corners.
    Might as well try the INDOOR version to see if that works.
