About This Listing

Roland R-8 MK2 OS v1.03 EPROM Firmware Upgrade KIT
  • Firmware OS v1.03 the latest operating system issued update by Roland for the R-8 MK2.
  • Included will be 1 new EPROM chip to complete the upgrade.

The R-8 MK2 unit itself is not for sale, only the EPROM upgrade chip will be supplied.

  • The v1.03 upgrade contains several bug fixes, improved stability and finalized system code optimizations.
  • Please note – This R-8 MK2 upgrade is not compatible with any of the other R-8 series units. Send me a message if you need help with the first revision R-8 or the R-8M, thanks.

To verify the current firmware revision installed in your R-8 MK2:

  • Hold [ TEMP ASGN ] and [ EXIT ] then turn on the R-8 MK2 to which you will be prompted with *** TEST MODE ***
  • Press [ ENTER ]  to which you will be prompted with the currently installed EPROM in your R-8 MK2.
  • Press [ ENTER ] again and you will be asked “Are you sure?” and press [ ENTER ] again.
  • You will see “Initialization Completed” to indicate that the R8 MK 2 is now back in its normal operation mode.

If requested - A link will be e-mailed to you with the R-8 MK2 service manual for your own personal reference. I find this to be quite useful and informative.

Protect your investment by purchasing high quality components:

ALL EPROM upgrade chips and components that I provide here are in fact brand new, high grade, recently manufactured and sourced directly from the manufacturer. Using new-age flash technology is the best way to ensure that the data integrity of your upgrades last well past our natural lifetime.

Any questions? Send me a message, thanks!

All EPROM upgrades I provide are prepared in an ESD-safe production environment and will be packaged in equally ESD-safe materials.

Purchase with confidence!
