How To Rollback Equinox To Previous Software

Recommended Posts

This information seems to have been left out of the update instructions.

When starting the software this is the first screen you see.

If you connect and have not updated you will see the new version offered up automatically. If you have already done the update you will see this screen. In either case, look carefully in the lower corners. There is an info screen accessed in the lower left corner (a tiny "i" in a circle) and in the lower right there are three small dots that access the rollback menu.

The rollback screen looks like this (shipping software version 1.5.0)

You can switch between versions as often as you wish.

very good to  know. I was a software developer for many years. One time we sent out an update to our 3,000 customers and within a week all 3,000 want to go back to the previous version which was MS-DOS. The new version which didn't work very well was our first attempt at converting to the first version of MS Windows which was Windows 1.0. Boy was windows 1.0 very screwed up release of windows. The engineers rushed out windows 1.0 to compete with Apple. So it is good to know we have a rollback option.

I was planning to wait a week or so to see how this Equinox update did not screw up something else which is always possible.

LOL!  I remember when tens of thousands of folks went back to Windows 3.11 after the dismal failure of Windows 95!  I stuck with Windows grudgingly until they forced Vista on us. Convinced me to try Mac OS, and I've never looked back! 😁

      Just received Nox #3.
      The first two were bad out of box.
      The first thing I noticed about both of them, when I noise cancel, I had to press detect button 2 twice to return to detect screen at times.
      This didn't happen all the time, but often.
      I noise cancel and  press detect 1 time and hear beep, but screen remains in noise cancel until button is pressed again.
      If in NC and 1 press doesn't return to detect screen, I can NC and 1 press a few times and then the detect screen will return after a NC and 1 press.
      Pulled Nox #3 out of box, connected coil, turned it on, did NC, pressed detect button, screen froze, tried again, same thing 2 or 3 times.
      Turned off, turned on, same thing.
      Went to video the problem and it worked like it should 4 or 5 times, before a screen freeze.
      Does anybody have this issue?
      Do you have to press detect button 2 times to return to detect screen?

      Is there anyone that for any reason still prefers the older version 1.5.0 software over the newer 1.7.5? If so, why? Just curious.

      Some folks here may find this interesting, I certainly did!
      Testing my equinox 800 in my home test garden today, ground not high on mineralisation, but full of iron, old rusty nails etc.
      Had a silver UK sixpence 1930's buried only about 4/5 inches deep iron nails below and all around. (Difficult target)
      Imagine a clock face, I'm sweeping from 12 o'clock to 6 o'clock , good 2 way tone, no problem, now sweeping from 3 o'clock to 9 o'clock, 1 way signal, one tone only sweeping from left to right (from 3 o'clock back to 9 o'clock)
      Here's the interesting discovery reference ground balance, on my test garden there's so much iron getting a true GB is impossible, when I do try to auto GB it jumps up to the high 90's! However most of my permissions here in the UK read a GB in the mid 40's to the mid 50's so generally that's where I leave my GB most of the time.
      Ok GB set at 50, one way target from 3 o'clock to 9 o'clock, sweeping from 3 back to 9 gives me a one way tone.
      Increasing the GB to 90 gave the opposite, still a one way tone, but in reverse ,now sweeping from 9 back to 3,, still a good 2 way tone sweeping from 12 to 6!
      Lowering the GB to 75, amazing, perfect 2 way tone, 3 to 9,, and 9 to 3.
      Just thought I would share this as I found the results very interesting!
      (GB set at 0 gave no tone whatsoever from 3 o'clock to 9 o'clock)
      Program used field 2 , 50 tones, multi, discrimination -9/+1, iron bias 1, stock 11" coil, sensitivity (tried 17/21 not a great deal of difference)
      Regards Dave. H

      I have recently been using my Equinox 800 for saltwater hunting.  The obvious settings, Beach 2,  Iron off.  Since I am forced to a slower swing, I drop recovery speed to about 2-3 (4-5 on beach).   
      I am forced to drop the sensitivity to 15 or below.   I have noticed the waves will cause signals and dips in the sand too.   This has become frustrating as I use a CTX-3030 and do not get nearly the false signals.   Any suggestions to try?
