[solved] Firmware Update Nikon D7000 failed

We tested as good as we can. But there will always be things we didn't find. If you found things that apparently don't work as they should, you can report them here so we can take care of them as soon as possible.

Hi!
I see that your serial number is below 4500, so we almost definitely have a fix for you. You will not believe this but the following trick will almost definitely help: Put the Unleashed in the freezer for 10-20 minutes, then plug it into the camera and try the update again, while it’s still as cold as possible.
We took a long time trying to find the cause of this problem. We found the problem and fixed it, but the fix comes in Firmware A, so if there’s ever a problem during the update of Firmware A, the fix will no longer work either.. The trick with the freezer has a scientific explanation too - now that we know the underlying cause.

I hope it helps!

Please try again a couple of times. We've had several cases where it only worked after the 3rd or 4th try.
