OS - can I please have a link to the 1.2 ES8 firmware for OSX? I can only find 1.1 on your website.

Nobody needs to install 1.2.0. It was only necessitated for an internal hardware revision. Hardware that needs 1.2.0 ships with it on.

Hi when I look at the system information on my ES-8 it shows that it is on 1.0.1. Based on the information here and on the website 1.1.0 is the latest however when I go to use the update utility it shows that there are no suitable devices connected. How can I update to the latest firmware?

It shows up in system information but this is what it shows in the updater app.

Is the ES-8 connected directly or via a hub?

I've connected it both directly and through a hub and the results are the same.

Hey Os,
I've just been trying to run the 1.1 firmware updater linked to above but it crashes on launch.
I have tried it on two different macbooks, on two different versions of macOS, with the same result.
I've got no idea if the fix will be on my end or yours but either way your help would be greatly appreciated.

Do you actually need to run it? There hasn't been an ES-8 produced with 1.0.0 firmware for 4 years now.

Yes, I believe so. In system information it reads "Version: 1.01"

The quickest solution would probably be for you to install libusb.

Version 1.10 is the same as the one in the es8.1.1.0.zip right ?
It appears I cannot open the ES-8 Firmware Update.app under Catalina... it says it cannot open because of "a problem"

Probably the same issue, with the same solution - install libusb.
