2. Turn off the power on your Fender Super Champ X2 amp. While holding the Tap button,  turn the power back on.

3. A dialog window will open in Fender FUSE. Here you will choose either the bundled firmware update file or you can browse for the firmware file you would like to update to. (Normally the most current version of firmware is bundled with the most current build of Fender FUSE).
