If you’ve already started the update with an SD card, it will update some parts of the LabQuest, then get stuck in a reboot cycle. The solution is to use a USB drive, copy the SD card over to the USB drive with the same files/folder locations as were on the SD card. The LabQuest will recover automatically on the next reboot.
