Engine DJ OS - Update Screen

There are a number of ways to update your Engine DJ OS hardware, below we explore each option available to you.

ONE | WIRELESSLY (NEW!)

As of version 1.6.0, Engine DJ OS devices connected to a WiFi (or wired) network can download and install the next update directly on the device.

  1. Ensure your device is connected to a WiFi network.

  2. Open the CONTROL PANEL by swiping down from the top of the screen.

  3. Navigate to the ABOUT / UPDATE tab, if an update is available you will see this here, select UPDATE.

  4. Follow the prompts to update.

  5. Once complete, turn your device off and on again before use.

TWO | INSTALLER APPLICATION

This option requires a USB cable connection from the device to your computer running the installer app and will walk you through each step needed to update.

  1. Head to the Engine DJ downloads page and under the OS section, select the device you wish to update.

  2. You will now be presented with download options for either Windows or Mac applications, click the one relevant to your operating system to download.
