If you are using an official Zynthian SD Image, the first thing you should do after booting up your Zynthian Box is update the software.

If your Zynthian's UI is working and can control it using the knobs or the touch screen, you can do it easily from there:

  • Connect your Zynthian Box to your router/switch using an Ethernet RJ45 cable. Alternately, you can configure the WIFI connection using the Webconf tool.
  • 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 your browser using the Webconf tool:




or from the command line, using this command:


If you don't know how to access your zynthian using the command line, read this:

If using a legacy Gorgona SD-image (you shouldn't!) then you will need to set the clock on the system before the update will work.

You can do that with:

 date -s YYYY-MM-DD

where YYYY is the year, MM is the month and DD is the date.
