    Hello, first post on here so go easy on me!

    I just received a new Novo 7 Elf but it's not been updated with the most recent firmware.
    I've found plenty of posts relating to updating the firmware but all seem to require Windows and I'm a Mac user.

    Does anyone know how I'd go about installing the latest firmware from a Mac?

    Many thanks,
    Ben

    You would need to install windows, I am a Linux user myself. Was no way to upgrade my momo8 without windows.

    Thanks for the reply.

    I do have an old Windows XP box at home but not even turned it on in 5 years probably!
    Hopefully it still works when I try to fire it up later.

    Cheers,
    Ben

    You could use Parallels on the Mac and install WinXP on that.
    That's what I'm going to use anyway!
