I am going to try again later and see if I can get it sorted.
I had to save the file to Google drive. It didn't work when I just downloaded it to the device

I also tried that yesterday, but the download firmware button just showed the blank listing just as when I downloaded via the web (by browsing the forum thread and selecting the hex file from within the app. Either way, firmware listing screen was blank when clicking the green firmware down arrow.

So...this morning I killed the JB4 app to make sure it launched fresh. I started the JB4 app and connected (ignition on, car not started). I went to Google drive and clicked the hex file. It took me back to the JB4 app like it did yesterday (.hex file was associated with JB4), but not directly to the firmware screen. I went into settings, selected firmware and then clicked the green firmware down arrow. Guess what? There were 5 files in the list now! So, it was kinda working yesterday, but the app wouldn't show the files in the listing for some reason. All were the same firmware hex file, but the file name had been incremented for each attempt (2, 3, 4 etc.). I selected the first one in the list that matched the original filename and was able to flash successfully as expected.

Definitely could feel the difference on my way to work (~10 miles through the city). It seems like the motor is more in sync with the boost for lack of a better explanation. Definitely a more stock-like feel, but with the extra power

It takes like 40 minutes to put the JB4 on. In on winter tires and an is20 upgrade. It's still so worth it. I wouldn't wait. Just get it on and enjoy. Even map 1 will be way more fun. Even on winters
