Simple step by Who_Am_I? VIP
PLEASE BACK UP ANY FILES AND BACK UP THE SYSTEM FOLDER WHICH CONTAINS YOUR JETEFFECT SETTINGS, ETC. BERFORE CONTINUING
Note for Windows Vista users:
i have found out that tcctool still doesn't work and is unable to find the D2 while accepting to use Tcctool for Unbricking or upgrading to D2+ Firmware. reboot PC and hit F8 before vista boot logo appears. there will be several options. select "Disable driver signature enforcement"
and that should allow you to upgrade to D2+ or Unbrick your D2. You'll have to do this step everytime if you want to use Tcctool.
*Step above also applies to Windows 7 Users
('Save As' to C:\
) where you see Program Files, Etc. then please Download the D2+ Firmware
Go HERE for the latest Firmware Link
2.59 Firmware and copy/paste the d2N.bin File from Folder 0 to the Root of D2 then disconnect and turn on "wait for progress to complete then reconnect while Holding the Menu Button" (Screen will be blank but D2 will be on)
-Windows will ask to install and find new Drivers for Hardware. Simply cancel and Navigate to Hardware Manager under Control Panel then find the New Hardware and right-click then Update Driver Software (There'll be a option to locate Driver Manually) then Navigate to the tcctool Folder then the tcctool-driver-win32 Folder
and click ok!
-Now open CMD by going to Start|Accessories|Command Prompt input cd tcctool
then tcctool -d cowond2 d2n_p.bin
then ENTER (Note: Firmware will NOT be fully installed!)

and now it'll be fully installed
-Now Disconnect and Reconnect like normal without Holding any Buttons. Copy/paste the RS and FT Files to ROOT, Disconnect, then turn on unit. wait for progress for updating to complete and shut off! you're DONE
you can upgrade to newer Firmware as normal
