If you are using the official Zynthian SD Image, the first thing you should do after booting up your Zynthian Box and getting the controllers working, is updating the software. You can do it easily from the Zynthian's UI:

  • Connect your Zynthian Box to your router/switch using an Ethernet RJ45 cable. You can also configure the WIFI connection.
  • Click update software from the UI's Admin Menu
  • Click restart UI (or reboot) from the UI's Admin Menu

You can also do it from the command line using this command:

 /zynthian/zynthian-sys/scripts/update_zynthian.sh
