When upgrading a SC8100, you can use both platform or SD card method.
If you are changing the machine type to change the number of currencies or change the language, you can also use both methods.
You will receive a file from Scancoin. In this file, you find
// for machines upgrade, from SN.001000 to SN.001003, model-type from SC8100-W01NE to SC8100-W05NE
- a comment indicating the modification offered by the license
- the license itself
- currency codes
- comment to understand the license to install at upgrade
Preparing the SD card:
Please get the latest SC8100 SD upgrade software from SCANNET.
Then put the “_Upgrade” folder into an empty SD card.
Then put the license.txt file received from SCANCOIN into “SC81” folder, together with the sdc files.
Is the machine already installed with the main firmware version 001.112 or above ?
If yes, just follow step 2 below.
If not, please follow step 1 to upgrade the main firmware first, then follow step 2.
1. Perform SD upgrade to have the latest firmware into the machine. Restart the machine.
2. Perform SD upgrade again. This time is to make the license change, in order to change the language.
You can of course simply take the license itself, use the traditional platform application and select the currencies manually.
