I just purchased a new TQi from the local hobby shop. Got home, replaced the receiver in my car, put the batteries in the transmitter and turned it on. All was good. I then downloaded the Traxxas Link App and as soon as the transmitter is connected, it tells me I have to upgrade the firmware to continue. I select the only available option, 'Proceed', which brings me to the version information screen. It finds the transmitter successfully with '2.0.44 to 2.1.56' next to it. The bottom button turns blue and says 'Touch Here to Proceed With The Firmware Update'. Selecting it brings me to a new screen with a single centered button saying 'Begin Update'. I select the button and the status label changes to 'Getting information from transmitter...' Almost immediately it changes to 'No response to the last packet. Retrying...'. After a moment, the screen changes to say 'Failed after too many retries. Please turn off and on the transmitter and vehicle and try again.' with a new button saying 'Retry Update'. If I select retry, same thing happens.
I have tried power cycling both the transmitter and receiver. Uninstalling/Reinstalling the iPhone app. Rebooting the iPhone. Resetting the model memory of the transmitter to factory defaults and rebinding the transmitter and receiver. It will not install the update and it's extremely disappointing. Please advise.
An issue like this is probably best handled by the Traxxas Customer Support team.

The same problem here... Update .77
Go to the app store and update to the newest version of the app. There is a fix in the new update to take that bug out.
Will traxxas ignore that issue???

Ok... I've trainned my english with Traxxas suport yesterday... And they asked me to send my Tx to then...

I boght a new one and it's ok now... And bought another one without dok base to take the radio and install the old dock...
I had the same issue where I connected my iPod to the TX and did the firmware update. It killed the whole TX to where it wouldn't even power on. I called Traxxas, they were aware of the situation, gave me an RMA and I sent it back to them. They promptly sent me a new TX. This time, when I did the firmware update, I made sure the TX and RX were both turned on and sitting right next to each other. The firmware updated without any issues and continues to work fine to this day. My advice, make sure both TX and RX are powered on before you do the update.
I have a TQI 6528 (SN A0044324) from/for my summit and worked perfectly well with my lovely beast.
I installed the BlueTooth Module 6511, it demands a firmware update. I connect the Module with my Android phone and start the process. The process goes through but never works. The Traxxas App shows a green TX connected icon. "TQi Transmitter (Bluetooth) 0.0.0 to 2.2.22)
The transmitter is blinking orange. I lauch the firmware update.
This is the information of the app:
Attempting to perform firmware update...
Getting information from the transmitter...
Skipping (stage 1 of 2 ) update
Verifying (state 1 of 2)
Updating (stage 2 of 2)...
FAILED TO GET A RESPONSE FROM THE TQI TRANSMITTER...
The Transmitter LED is now solid green.
Whenever I turn on my Transmitter it flashes Orange and it won't connect to my Receiver/Summit.
Application Version 188.8.131.5249 from April 27 2015 running on a Android Note 3 with Android Lollipop.
My son did the update on his docking base TX(non bluetooth). Now It's just blinking both red/green (orange?) at the same time really fast and won't do anything.

Guys, have you tried rebinding the transmitter and receiver? It's a simple procedure:
1- Turn both transmitter and receiver off
2- Open the receiver box on your vehicle to have easy access to the link button
3- While pressing SET button, switch on the transmitter - LED should be blinking red
4- While pressing the link button on your vehicle's receiver, power on the vehicle
If things go well, they should link in a second or two and LEDs on both ends turn green. Try it out.
I've tried everything and mine won't stop the blinking.
Can't rebind...can't get the iphone to connect...nothing.

The orange blinking never stops. I can hold Menu or Set or both, it will blink orange forever.
Unless I try to update the firmware, then it turns green but inoperable. Turning off and on, it will again blink orange.
Traxxas Support told me to contact my local hobby shop in Europe. But I bought the TQi in the US. And the Firmware flash process destroyed the TQi, not "using" it. I am very frustrated.
