Hello everybody,

I apologize first for my bad English;)
I bought 10 Baofeng UV-5R TP for myself and my friends. With a device I can unfortunately not play my settings.
Now my problem: in the field of the firmware stands firmware 1 in all other 9 devices is 1FB297. Unfortunately, I can not play through the wrong firmware on the device ... Is there any way to adjust the firmware?
I would be very grateful for your help.

Greeting Dennis

You are trying to upload an image that came from a radio that doesn't have an exact match for the firmware version. Because of this the setting on the "Other" tab must be skipped. The only settings that didn't upload were the Power-on Message and the band limits. If you want to change them, you must download from that radio, make the changes and upload back to the same radio. At least you got the channels and most settings. It was not long ago that CHIRP would have refused to upload the image because it didn't exactly match.
