    SJ6 Legend 1.46 Firmware Update Workaround

    For those having difficulty manually updating their SJ6 Legend to version1.46, try this.

    Rename the SJ6CAM.bin file to SJCAM001.bin

    On Windows, right-click the firmware file you downloaded from the support site, and click on Rename.

    Change it to SJCAM001.bin:

    Then install the file by copy-pasting it in a freshly formatted (FAT32) Memory Card.

    Insert the card into your fully-charged SJ6 Legend, power it on, then wait for the lights to blink.
    This may take about 1-2 minutes to finish.
    Once you see the SJCAM logo, you're done!

    You can verify the update by going to General Settings, and go to Version.

    The correct workaround, when the firmware is not installed by the latest Loader, seems to be to rename the firmware file to FW96660T.bin
    Figured this out by opening the loader file in Hex editor and searching there for .bin filename.
