If you had firmware 1.13.17 or earlier, you won't have it. You need to apply the ESN loader fix first, then you would get the firmware and updater. It is a little confusing but once you've gone through it once, it's actually pretty easy.

You would first need to register your 396 and 996 on the Uniden website.

John, read this sticky 'BCD396T and BCD996T Updates are Here' in this forum - it will be either the first or last message (depending on how you set up your defaults for this site) where UPMan talks about the various steps you need to execute.
