Korg Electribe 2 Downgrade from 2.02

Electribe downgrade from 2.02

UPDATE: broken link to the hack post

After seeing some comments from Blaz, I decided to do the downgrade as he said and works successfully! This means if you upgraded the gray electribe to 2.02 and want to test the old sampler version (1.06), you can do it by using the downgrade firmware posted below and then upgrading to sampler.

If you own a colored new model of the electribe, the blue version, please test carefully. I don’t have this machine and I’m not aware if changes something from gray version.

Here is a new video showing the downgrade:

I created the same modified firmware file of 1.10 that acts as 2.18, allowing to roll back your electribe if already has 2.02 version.

In order to get the file, you must share this post with your one of your Social Networks. Notice that KORG don’t recommend this

And after this downgrade, you probably want to try the HACK to Sampler Version. (if you are already on the mailing list, the link is in the welcome mail.)

In case you want to go to the 2.02 version again, you must switch to synth version of the hack, update to 1.19 and then to 2.02.

Please comment below if it works properly for your device. Regards!

  4. Hey there,
    just tried to get the Downgrade file by sharing via google+ but the link only brings me to a site full of adverts, nothing to download there…
    Also, I subscribed to your mailing list yesterday in order to get the file to convert my E2 to a sampler. By now, I haven´t got any welcome mail with a link to the respective download files.
    Please help and btw: great work, dude! 🙂

    1. Hey Fabian,

      You must click on the top right of that Advert site.

      Also, if you confirmed the mailing subscription, you should get my e-mail. Send me one, I’ll confirm your subscription and send all those links.


      1. Oh just saw your answer, thanks man!
        Your mails just went into an “unknown sender” folder in my mail account… so my fault not checking there.
        Got both the downgrade and conversion to sampler files now and will try later today. Hope they´ll both work on mac?
