go to ziiospace on your ziio, you will find the extra tab or icon on the extreme left - firmware update.

or go to this link -

first thing, i noticed - no matter which download option you choose. the file downloaded will always be in zip format. *important* you must rename to file extension to .apk

windows 7 users - go to control panel, appearance and personalization -> folder options. choose the view tab and uncheck "Hide extensions for known file types.

transfer to file to your ziio.
it does not matter how you put the file in your ziio - sd card or usb.

click ziiExplorer, and choose the renamed ZiiO7_fwupd_1_00_13to1_00_28.apk and install.

4) how come it isn't doing anything after installing?

it took me a while to figure what happened.
first exit ziiexplorer -> click the "^" button on your home screen to bring up the programs menu.

you'll see the "Firmware Update" icon and click it to finally update your firmware.
(took me about 5 minutes and i recommand plugging ziio to power source just in case)

after reboot -> click settings -> Build number has been upgraded from v1.00.13 to v1.00.28

first impression is super fast and my ziimusic and ziiphoto finally works. they are able to detect all files and play them finally. only thing is that its still not the 2.2 update, so no android market.

will try to continue my review after a few days of testing first.
History is written by the winners, not the losers.

I experience the same "stucked at Zii logo problem". However, it didn't really froze at the Zii Logo, the firmware was still being update, it just takes a min or two. So just do the same thing and leave the ZiiO to re-boot by itself after the update.
