old bootloader will give this
I have flashed a newer boot loader then went back and tried to flash image - get this error - should I flash bootloader, reboot and then flash the image ?

bootloader then image without reboot should work
thats what I have done, flashed 84D SSL - was on 69 before then image without a reboot but get this error message

should I flash ssl in order from 69 then next version until I get to 84

no matter what I do I always get the error message INVALID IMAGE (OR OLD VERSION)
when trying to flash an image after doing SSL upgrades

went to SSL 76 then 84B then flash image thats for 84B but get the same error

what if I reboot the box after flashing an SSL and then flash image - would this work

Only reason it would report that image would be if the ssl didnt flash check at bootup it states 84
