I have updated my DT2 to MM via the verizon wireless software upgrade assistant v1.4.7 installed on my Win7 laptop via USB.
So far, no issues - the 6.0 software updated just fine after failing (without using the software assistant program.
Earlier, a popup window on my laptop informed me that an update to the verizon wireless software upgrade assistant to v1.4.8 was available, and asked if i wanted to get the update. When I clicked "yes", the program said it "could not connect to the internet" and closed out.
I opened the program, and there is no "manual update" or "check for program updates" available.
After searching the DT2 support forum, i found the download link to get theverizon wireless software upgrade assistant program for "Initial Setup...", but that link downloads the (old?) v1.4.7.exe setup file.
Is there or is there not an update for the verizon wireless software upgrade assistant to v1.4.8 ? and how do i get it?
SUA initial setup page with instructions for MAC and WIN - :
direct windows download link:
The download is ~42MB and can take while to download - their server is kinda slow.
I've seen numerous posts by people who have used the SUA, either from the Windows download link OR by installing it from the USB-attached phone, that were UNsuccessful on both Win 8 and Win10 with the SUA, but Successful using it on Win 7.
I have been unable to determine for sure, but it may be that the v1.4.8 fixes that and works with Win 8/10.
Best of luck and please let us know how it works out for you!
Be sure to follow these instrucions carefully !
For example, the SUA will not see the phone if it's connected but still unlocked. A simple but perhaps not-so-obvious point...
Again, Good Luck !

On the phone, you must also "allow software updates via USB" when it connects.
Well I got it downloaded and installed... Unfortunately neither of my computers recognize it! One has USB 2.0, too. Did Verizon do their best to withdraw Marshmallow or what?
