Downloaded and installed the current version of firmware for my new Thor 4 640x480 1-10x and it went from bad to worse. Newest firmware causes the scope to freeze constantly with less than a minute of use. Only solution is to perform a hard reset on the device. Wish I would never have installed it. Got the scope last month and the factory firmware performed much better although it wasn't without flaws. Does anyone have an older, more stable version out there? Can you install older firmware versions over newer?
I am less than satisfied with this scope. ATN customer support is non-existent.

I am sure I have the latest two. Do you know what version was on it previously?
You can rename an old file to a new file number and get it to update to the old stuff.
Example; new firmware is 3.3.05.357. Take the next one down, 3.3.03.330 and name it 3.3.05.358 and put it on the card. Go through the install and it will eventually show 3.3.03.330 in the system settings.
But, just in case, did you go through the factory reset afterwards and select which scope you had?
Edited to add. Updated my 1.5-5x and did all of the BS they require. Walked around the house with it powered up for 10 minutes or so and didn't have any lock ups, but I wasn't doing anything with it other than looking at the view screen. Sounds like a good excuse to go out and do some hunting this weekend.

The factory reset won't take it back to original, but it is part of the update instructions.
I know it all the way down there at step 9, but it is there.
One thing it doesn't tell you is to go back in after the factory reset and select what scope type you have.
You also need to re-zero the scope, so it would have been nice for them to include how to export your settings before the update and import after. Luckily, covered on this forum a bunch....for next time.
wheels: For a extra large scope cover, try RUSCAM on Ebay. They sell a very decent 17inch neoprene cover

Widowmaker: GOLDSTARHOLSTERS, Had a similar issue with the x-sight II. Recoil video only works when it is turned on in the widgets and then activated by first pushing the video record button. Won't record recoil video until recoil. But has to be activated first.

Widowmaker: Goldstarholsters. Also found it will not record video while in recoil video mode. (Other than Recoil video). Recoil video had to be turned off before regular video would record to sd card. Individual pictures were not affected by either video setting.

Widowmaker: Purchased my ATN X_SIGHT II 5-20 for multiple uses. Foremost was to use on my new Ravin R-20 Crossbow. Turned it into sub -1 minute weapon from 20 out to 135 yards. About 5/8" grouping. Turned an old 1903 A3 Springfield 30-06 into a tac driver. I'm all in.

Widowmaker: New member and ATN X-Sight II 5~20 owner. Awesome video scope. Turned my Ravin into a serious tack driver. Meat in the freezer. Glad to be here. Hope to glom some good intel while here. POA~POI. ATN makes 'em match!

captdoug: I just got a 56mm killflash from ebay for $8.22 that fits my 4k pro 3-14 perfectly.

jonnie: What does the killflash do for you?
Mar 3, 2019 5:22:53 GMT -8
captdoug: It helps when sunlight would be hitting your objective lens and causing glare and of course keeps a sun reflection flash from giving away your position.

Widowmaker: Interesting. Unfortunately they did not have one available for the Butler Creek #53 scope cap required for the X-Sight 5~20 68mm hood. Might be an insert available to reduce the I.D. Thanks for the tip.

jawit: Any one how to find a good dealer list and any try paring the 4K pro 5x20 with a samsung 8A tab or phone?

odin: hatrick - with most external you need to activate it before trying to turn on scope. Will be a small button on the external power pack which will wake it up.

mrc045: Can someone tell me how to turn the power off of my ATN X-SIGHT 4K PRO 5-20X? The screen froze up. Your effort in this matter is greatly appreciated.

Widowmaker: TAKE OUT THE BATTERIES. RE-INSERT BATTERIES AND START OVER.

Widowmaker: Sorry, didn't mean to "shout"
Mar 25, 2019 6:23:35 GMT -8
Widowmaker: You can also try holding down the power button for 30 seconds vs taking out the battery.
Mar 25, 2019 10:18:23 GMT -8
retired: mrc045, I too have a 4K Pro and there is no option to remove the batteries. Hold the power button down until it shuts off. It took a little over 30 seconds the last time mine froze. I haven't had any freezing issues since the most recent firmware. Jim
