Your Boxee Box automatically prompts (if available) to download the latest firmware at boot time. You can also check to see if a new version of firmware (without rebooting), go to Settings> Check> System for the new version of Boxee Box.

If you are still having trouble then you can download the firmware to a PC, copy it to a flash drive, and then install the firmware on the Boxee Box. Just following these instructions:
  • Download the latest firmware update Boxee Box from the Boxee Box firmware Update. The downloaded file will be called boxee.iso, and that the name should be kept
  • Copy the file boxee.iso to a USB drive. Be sure to correctly extract the flash drive after copying the file
  • Switch Off the Boxee Box.
  • Turn on the Boxee Box by pressing and holding the power button for 6-10 seconds. After his release, the box will start with the logo turned orange
  • After the recovery menu, connect your flash drive to the Boxee box, wait 2 seconds, then select USB update menu and follow the onscreen instructions

Re: How to update the Boxee Box software

It worked well for me. As last week, Boxee failed to connect to the Internet and network shows extremely little Wi-Fi signal strength, but neighbors give the impression to contain 3 full bars, while two Wi-Fi was showing a bar. I tried to restore factory settings, which worked well, but it will not upgrade to the latest firmware. To start downloading and reach about 90% and left alone. So I'm glad I was able to find this unofficial version for a manual update. I hope this fixes the small number of problems I've been experiencing lately.
