If you are talking about the "warning message" that you get when you upload
an image file to a radio with a firmware version that is different than the
firmware version of the radio the image was downloaded from, this message
is intentional. Is not a bug and is not meant to indicate an error has

It is merely telling you that because the image's firmware version and the
radio's firmware version is different, the transfer of about a dozen
settings we intentionally skipped. Otherwise, the transfer was successful.

The settings that are skipped are all on the "Other Settings" menu (mostly
power-on messages and band limits). These are settings that most of the
time don't need cloned anyway.
