Before you Start, Check your Current Firmware Version

  • If you're on v7.1.36, you're all set to use OpenSpace!
  • If you are NOT on v7.1.36, you need to update to v7.1.36. Please follow the guide below, starting at "Getting Ready."

NOTE: If you're on v1.1.32 (or earlier), you may need to upgrade to Insta360's latest firmware before updating to our version. Please follow Insta360's guide to update to their latest firmware.

Getting Ready

  • Download OpenSpace's ONE R firmware to your computer with this link.
    (This is version 7.1.36)
    Make sure file name is "Insta360OneRFW.bin" - the camera will NOT update if the name is different. (This is version 7.1.36)
  • Assemble camera in 360 mode by removing the one-sided lens and replacing it with the 360 (double-sided) lens. Assemble those to the battery (the long red piece).
  • The default Camera WiFi Password is 88888888.

Updating the Firmware

1. Connect the Insta360 ONE R to your computer with the included USB cable.

2. Copy Insta360OneRFW.bin file to the Insta360 ONE R's SD card.

3. Wait for the file to finish copying over, then eject the Insta360 ONE R from your computer.

4. Turn the camera on. After a few seconds, it will say "Checking firmware"

6. Connect the Insta360 ONE R to your phone via WiFi Settings (the password is 88888888).
