16. DID IT WORK?
Turn "OFF" the radio and disconnect it from the cable.
Let the USB side of the cable connected to the computer.
Turn "ON" the radio.
Is it speaking English?
Make sure you're in "Memory" mode and check if you have the factory default frequencies installed.
If you do, you should have a Fully Functional Radio.
Switch to "Frequency" mode and test it out.
If the tests are good, you can shut down the "OLD CHIRP" program.

Skip to Step 18 to program an alias image file (i.e. a friend’s frequency list). You can also start the New Chirp and adjust the frequencies manually.
 
17. STILL GOT A BRICK?
If it didn't work, you may have to run the “uv5r.py” file in the "OLD CHIRP" program.
 
Download the “uv5r.py” file from the CHIRP site and follow the directions below. The download is at the top of the page on:
http://chirp.danplanet.com/attachments/1693/uv5r.py
 
It doesn't matter if you're running Windows or Linux.
 
a) Download the “uv5r.py” file and save it where you keep your “CHIRP .img” files.
b) Click on "Help" and check "Enable Developer Functions"
c) On the OLD CHIRP, click on "File" then "Load Module".
d) Load the “uv5r.py” file that was saved in Step "a".
 
Start over at Step 11.
