I have just tried updating my hornby elite firmware from version1.0 to 1.3. The procedure went as the instructions on the hornby website said but when i restarted the elite it still showed version 1.0. I tried the procedure again but my computer would not recognise the elite as new hardware so i could not proceed. I transferred the update file to another computer and the update seemed to go ok again but the elite was still on version 1.0. I have emailed hornby but still await a reply. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Also is the update vital as i am prepared to carry on with version 1.0 if it only alters a few minor points of the elite.
