How to upgrade the Celiveo Version on CSA and Embedded Agents

The Celiveo Version refers to the Celiveo firmware that runs as embedded on certain printers such as HP FutureSmart or Ricoh Android SOP 2.x MFP or as deployed in Celiveo Smart Appliance (CSA). Typically, the CSA Agent comes pre-loaded with the correct firmware. For printers that run on Embedded Agents, you must explicitly upload the Celiveo Version.

The primary and recommended method of upgrading Celiveo Version is through the Web Admin.

In case of CSA Agent, it can also be upgraded by flashing the firmware files directly to CSA Agent using USB memory stick.
