It will boot into normal mode and operate fine as an effect pedal. It will not connect to the updater or H9 Control via USB. It will connect to my iphone H9 Control via bluetooth, but will not update sw, although I can control parameters with the Bluetooth Iphone Connection. I have absolutely no connection/communication with USB.
Since it failed to load sw now it will not connect even in UPDATE mode
So you are saying your H9 cannot boot in the normal mode?
H9 Control can only recognize H9 in normal mode. Only Direct Updater/Eventide Device Manager uses the UPDATE mode.
