Force Link 2.0 Voices?
« on: July 17, 2019, 05:09:59 PM »

I recently purchased the Force Link 2.0 Voice transponder so that my grandkids could play with it, but I need some help with it.  It seems to work fine with most of the figures and vehicles that are marked Force Link 2.0 but when I try it with the newer figures from SOLO all I get is a message saying "Firmware Update Required".  Is there a newer version of this gizmo that works with the Solo line of figures?  Or can it indeed be updated to work with these figures? 
If so, how do I go about doing it?

Any information would be appreciated.

 You have to download the Force Link 2.0 app to your phone as there is an option to update the Force Link.

I did a search on the App Store for the Force Link 2.0 app but had no luck in finding anything.  I know I am not too experienced in shopping for apps so any help would be appreciated.  Can anyone tell me what to look for and where?

I just did a search on the app store and it came up. Maybe just type in force link.

I was able to down load the app, but so far I have not had any luck uploading the update.

Im on android, if I recall correctly when I did the firmware update for the force link 2.0 device it took like 10 min to complete and even then I had to reboot because I thought it had frozen.  Turns out it had updated but it was just slow to let me know about it.
I hadn't realized but the force link 2.0 actually works with all the original force link 1.0 figures.

I have both Force Link 1.0 and 2.0 Voice Transponders and all the Force Link 1.0 and 2.0 figures. I downloaded the firmware upgrades for all and I can tell you Hasbro never really upgraded the firmware to include the last wave of Solo figures. There's still a few that won't operate with the Transponder. Sadly.

I think there's a site where you can access all these if you want, but I can't seem to find it. I think YakFace.com or Rebelscum might have this in their Archives News somewhere...

I updated my Force Link 2.0 through the app and it works with all the newest waves. I just tested it on about 15 figures including the final solo wave and it works fine.  The update on the app should work for all Force Link figures.

Good to know!! I'll try doing this as well.  :)

OMB, I don't have any experience with the app, but I found this video - I wonder if it might be of some help:

I hear what your saying Old Man Ben.  I had a similar experience.

Downloading was a pain.  I had to keep moving the phone and force link to get a connection and then they had to stay perfectly still.  If one moved it could "break" the connection and stop the download.  Eventually it finished, but the process for me was not a smooth one.

For some reason I can’t even get the download to start.  Perhaps it is because I am using my iPad?  Maybe I will try from my iPhone?
