Upgrade O!Play firmware

I have an Asus O!Play media player almost one month. It comes with firmware Version 1.07N. The N means NTSC.
Just in one week. Asus released two firmware, 1.11 and 1.13.
New features including:
1.Improve the compatibility of HDMI cable
2.Add video/audio information when pressing “DISPLAY” button twice
3.Add thumbnail view for picture browsing
4.Add more setting choices of subtitle such as color, font size, and location etc.
5.Add sorting ways for easy file searching
You can download the latest firmware from Asus official site here.
Let me write down the steps of upgrading firmware of Asus O!play.
0. Go to the Asus official site to download the firmware file. It is about 36MB. The key is to make sure download the right file which is suitable to your TV. N for NTSC. P for PAL.
Decompress the file and copy the install.img into your USB disk.


1. Insert the USB Flash drive( install.img inside ) to USB port of your Media Player. The
System will recognize the firmware in the USB Flash drive automatically.
2. Press the SETUP button on the Remote controller and the setup screen will be displayed.
3. Click on the System item and press OK. Then navigate to the system Upgrade and press
OK to start updating.
4. At this moment, the Power LED of O!Play will turn from BLUE to RED and following screen
will be displayed.
The whole upgrade process may take about 4~5 minutes. Don’t turn off it or restart it.

  1. Worked like a charm from 1.18 to 1.33. Thanks.

  2. I think I put 1.24 on. So I don’t need 1.28, 1.29 etc to get to 1.33? The reason I’m asking (AGAIN the guy above asked it as well) is because 1.33 is smaller than 1.28 (and 1.30 for that matter). How is that possible?

  3. Hi David,
    Thanks for your help.

  4. Hi David,
    If I want to upgrade to the latest 1.33P from 1.21P, do I need to install/ upgrade all firmware in between or just 1.33P? So all firmware in between will also be included in 1.33P?
    Many thanks.

  5. Hey man, thanks for the blog entry. I’ve been trying to figure out how to do this for a bit. The only issue I’m having now is getting the newest firmware update. I went to the url you specified and I just keep going around in circles. I can download the manual like a pro though, just not the firmware. I’ve got a really old firmware version and I want to get 1.21N installed if I can find it, sigh! How do you know when the newest release comes out? I can’t even find version release announcements? Is 1.21N still the newest?
    Thanks Marty
