Step-by-Step Guide

3. Turn on and connect your Spark amp to a computer using a USB-to-USB type B cable (we recommend using the one that comes in the box with the Spark amp). Keep in mind that the updater software should be started BEFORE plugging the Spark into the USB port.

 

4. Click “Connect Hardware” in the firmware update tool 

*If the firmware updater does not detect your Spark amp, please try reconnecting the USB cable on the Spark amp or try a different USB port on your computer. If that doesn’t work, please try restarting your computer and try again.
