How to Manually Update Your Wetek Player

This applies to both the Wetek Hub and the Wetek Play 2.

What you'll need

  1. USB or micro SD formatted in FAT32.
  2. Internet connection to download the firmware. If you already have the firmware, you don't need an internet connection anymore.

Download the latest firmware (Choose below)

  • Wetek Hub latest firmware
  • Wetek Play 2 latest firmware

Copy

Next, copy it in a FAT32 formatted USB drive or a micro-sd. Do not extract the zip file.

If you're coming from WeOS version 1

  2. Select Local Update. local-update-in-weupdate-v1
  3. Select external_storage.external-storage-in-weupdate-v1
  4. If you placed the zip file in a micro-sd card, select sdcard1. If you placed it in a USB, select udisk0. udisk0-in-weupdate-v1
  5. Locate & select your zip file.

I love anything that makes life easier & enjoyable. I don't get things right the first, second or third time around. So, I strongly believe the saying, "If at first you don't succeed, skydiving is not for you."
