I did it that way, and it works just fine. The file is digitally signed, so it is legit. The Bolt won't update without a digitally signed copy.

Update Bolt Firmware. RECOMMENDED!
Did it to mine this weekend.
Worked as advertised.
No problem.

and your foglights are on
you are a doofus.

Following the details from electrek, I got the same successful outcome also.
Straight forward, no issues.

Yeah, did mine too - So far no Spectre or Meltdown bugs :lol: and my Waze is now full screen in Android Auto! Keypass is still trash... but that might be my phone.

Not me. I’m usually a first adopter but Ive bricked an Apple TV and an iPhone in my past life so I’ve sworn off work around, hacks and unauthorized changes to software. Don’t even use torrent for movies anymore! You get old you use lessons learned. Get more cautious. Getting old sucks.

I am old. Nice to be able to do it myself and not have to depend on the goofy local
Chevy dealer OR drive to the fab dealership I bought the car from.
