    The second thing I got caught up on, was the amp update.
    My instructions were written FOR A DEALER, so it mentioned some tool that was shipped to all the dealers, and I need that, to hook up to the amp to figure out which version was on my amp, and update it "if not the needed details". But all that is unnecessary for a DIY install.

    The other part of the firmware update process was also a bit confusing just for a lack of information, or supplies. Like I mentioned, it mentions using some machine to update everything, but I don't have that. It doesn't mention where to get the update, or anything of the sort, so I was running blind. After some googling, I found a TSB or something that mentioned where to get the update, and how to install it with any USB (instead of "THE RF USB" that seems to have also been sent to dealers.)

    Long story short, to download the update, you need to go to www.rockfordfosgate.com/flex41
    and login

    Username: mitsubishi
    Password: mirage
    (CASE SENSITIVE, ALL LOWERCASE)

    From there, ignore any of the help articles on there (they're contradictory to what I'm telling you now, AND any of the instructions I have or have found) and go immediately to the downloads page (you SHOULD be taken there already). There's a table there that explains what year, model, and trim each mirage pertains to which version of the update you need for the amplifier.

    From there, you can resume the instructions and/or whatever anyone's said on the forum..
    That is, download the file, copy it to a USB stick, attach USB stick to a USB A female to microUSB male adapter, plug it in. Wait for lights to stop flashing (takes about 30 seconds) you're done. Turn off the car. Turn on the car. Try it out.

    I've logged in and tried to download the 2021 ES file and my browser states it could not download securely. It also does the same for all of the above links. Any ideas?

    Their certificate is out of date. You can either click "advanced" and "proceed to download" or if you continue to struggle, LMK I have the files still somewhere here.

    Any chance you could access the RF file. I'm planning on installing my RF amp this weekend.

    Couldn't figure out how to get this to you

    But here's the file I think you need.
