Updating Syrus 4G APX takes around 100 MB of data. This is a lot if you are using SIM card data so there is a way to update locally the APX without consuming Sim card data.
Note: Ask support members to provide you APX version you need.
Step 1.- Create a folder in your PC in which you store APX files.
It is recommended to have a simple name and located in your root drive (C or D drive). See image below.
Step 2. – Download this external software: Simple server
Once you install it, open the software and select your shared folder created in the last step.
Mark the checkbox called “Accessible on local network”. Thats all needed. Turn on your local server.
Step 3.- Click on the local server and check the web server URLs.
If you are using USB connection Syrus 4G – Laptop then IP shold be in the range of 192.168.9.xx
It is important to select the rigth URL because we will use it next

Paste the next command. It is important to modify it with your information:
sudo apx-os-update start -f -p http://192.168.1.71:8080/apex-22.44.2
Note: Above command is valid to update from APX 22.28.1
If you are not using that version you can use this command in the terminal of Syrus 4G to check for the update command options.
