I'm using my SqueezeBox wirelessly and I have the 5.1.3 server (Windows)
installed and my SB "upgraded" to firmware V.10 without problems.

I decided to move up to the V.21 firmware and, from instructions in the
5.1.3 release notes, uncommented the bottom two lines in the
Firmware/squeezebox.version file. When I restarted SlimServer, my SB gave me
the "Press and Hold Brightness..." message and I did (though I always seem
to have to put my SB IP address into SlimServer.) Anyway, the SB and server
both announced a sucessful update and the SB restarted and went through it's
reattachment to the server and went back to the "Press and Hold
Brightness..." message. I've been through the several times and still keep
getting the "success" message, but no real update.

I recommented the squeezebox.version lines and my SB restarted normally (in
V.10) when the server

So, is there some trick to getting the 20 or 21 firmware update to really
