What you will need to update your R-05

Caution when performing the update
  • Never apply this update data to any product other than the R-05. This update data may destroy the data or system program of other products.
  • Check the remaining battery indication of your R-05 before performing the update.(We recommend to update with using a separately sold dedicated AC adaptor.)
