WARNING: I installed the 2020-01-16 release and lost the touch screen. Ran full diagnostics and all passed. Reverted back to the 2018-10-16 release and regained all functionality.

EDITED TO ADD: This appears to be a problem only for installations on Macs. Prime Users installing with Win10 report no problems.

Reverting to Firmware 20181016 or 20191120 Beta on MacOS installations returns Touch Screen functionality.

Installing from Win7 and Win10 also sometimes results in loss of touch screen; some users report no problems, others lose touchscreen. As noted above, reverting to prior version restores touchscreen.

HP has corrected the loss of touch experienced with the 20200116 Firmware. The 20200121 Firmware appears to work without loss of capability.

Installed with a Mac 10.15.2

Last FW, 20200122, installed whiout errors, and the screen works at last fine throug the new capbility to change the refresh rate and now the screen with full brightness works without vibrations.

"Added ability to adjust screen refresh rate using [ON] + [SHIFT] + [+] or [-] key combo"

Many thanks for these posts

I have encountered an error, which perhaps detects a bug in HP PRIME G2 (hardware). For example, if I do this calculation with the virtual calculator: "exp (-10^49-10^49*i)", I rightly get zero. If, however, I perform the same operation with my HP PRIME G2 (i.e. hardware version with firmware 20200121), an error is displayed: +Inf. This error, found on the G2, is not of little importance. For example, if I want to calculate the first-kind Bessel-function, BesseJ(n, z) with Arg(z) int(exp(-(2+3*i)*sinh(t)-2.5*t),t,o,+inf) --> 0.152804387425-9.90045195322E-2*i (on virtual PRIME)
int(exp(-(2+3*i)*sinh(t)-2.5*t),t,o,+inf) --> undef-undef*i (on "hardware" G2 PRIME)

There is a bug for CAS mode. Engineering notion does not work. When I select it, it either does standard or scientific. Normal home works correctly.

Hello all. I just bought my HP Prime G2 recently. I have a few questions. How do I update the FW? I don't have any Connectivity kit. Can it be done through USB connection? Thanks all. Some bug seen on my calculator
1. changing from radian to degree, through the upper right screen, does not dynamically change all polar in stacks.

Update: Ok. I know how to do it.

The bug below is still present in the latest FW release :(.

1. Changing from radian to degree, through the upper right screen, does not dynamically change all the polar in stacks.

Can the FW developer help to fix this please?

Any news regarding the 2023-04-13? is it stable on HP Prime G2 Rev D?

How do I apply this firmware? I have the latest connectivity kit (2023-04-13), but when I use "Update calculator" it updates it to the 2020-01-21 firmware, and I cannot find an option to select the 2023-04-13 firmware from this page.

UPDATE: SOLVED!

Install the connectivity kit, run it, close it again. Then extract the firmware ZIP file to a folder, rename the folder to "PrimeG2", and place it in Documents\HP Connectivity Kit\Firmware. Then run the connectivity kit again, and now you can apply the new firmware with "Update calculator".
