    Line 6 seriously screwed up 2.5 update, don't download it, wait for the next version.

    Specifically, after the 2.5 update, everything stops working...Both the Pod Farm plugin and Gear Box.

    Line 6 admits that there is a problem with the update, but haven't yet came with a solution.

    I thought that it would be nice to warn other Line 6 users before doing the update, since it renders the whole platform unusable, which in my case happened in a middle of a mix for a whole 10 songs. And now I (and all other Line 6 users who did the update) have to wait for the new driver.

    If this harms the forum in any possible way, please delete the thread.

    Thanks

    So you're saying that the entire install is completely borked? Is there a particular software version or hardware situation that it's specific to?

    Can you back the install out and re-install the previous version?

    No worries on the thread, we just don't like to bash people we work with unless we have a really good hammer to do it with.

    The only way to go completely to the old version is to have a Time Machine backup, but that fixes it only partially, since the new driver also included a firmware update...which makes it virtually impossible to authorize the bundle. My guess is that they're not releasing the new software because they messed up with the firmware update, and are now looking for a safe way to update without screwing up the hardware.

    There are people complaining about the deterioration in the sound quality as well, so my advice is again for all users not to update, and wait for the new driver.

    I'm not using this to bash Line 6 (I already sent them enough e-mails ), just to warn everybody.

    Nah, it's easy. You complain about things all the time.
