Photobooth Software Update

this manual helps you updating your software. 

Updating the software can fix problems and add new features. A list of changes for each version can be found here:




  • Shut down your photobooth
  • Plug in the USB stick into your computer and copy the selfomat.update file onto the usb drive. Important: Do not rename the file! The file must be named selfomat.update
  • Eject the USB drive from the computer to ensure that the file was written completely to the drive
  • Plug the USB drive into the photobooth
  • With the USB drive plugged into the photobooth, turn it on
  • The update is starting automatically
    Important: Do not turn of the booth during the update! Also do not remove the USB stick during the update!
  • As soon as the update is complete, your booth will reboot using the new software.


If it doesn't work:

  • Try another USB stick
  • If your booth starts into the software and does not start the update automatically, head to the self-o-mat app and enter the update mode from the settings.
  • The USB stick must be formatted properly. Supported filesystems are: fat32, exfat, ntfs
  • If it still doesn't work, try reinstalling the base system.
