The following is stolen from DSI Forum:

Not that we're expecting bad things to happen, but always better safe than sorry. Just remember, you're never going to say to yourself "Man, I wish I hadn't backed that up..."

We do not recommend using the following MIDI interfaces for sysex transfers as we have had multiple users experience problems with them:

Native Instruments Maschine
Digidesign Mbox/Mbox2
Digidesign 001/002

Updating the Prophet 12 OS on a PC
Updating the Prophet 12 OS on a Mac

The OS updates can be installed in any order, just power cycle in between each update.

To check if the OS update was properly installed, go to the global menu by hitting the 'Global' button and the OS version is displayed at the top of the 3rd column

If your OS update failed:

Update your MIDI drivers for your MIDI interface to the latest or last known stable version
Try alternate speed settings: transfer speed settings as low as 25% and as high as 100% have worked for some users when 80% did not
Try an alternate MIDI interface. The M-Audio MIDI Sport Uno works well here and is relatively cheap
In Windows with MIDI OX on Windows XP: Try doubling or quadrupling the Size setting to start, and halving/doubling the number of buffers
Search google and/or forums for the company that produces your MIDI interface to see if other users are having similar problems with Sysex transfers and whether there is a solution specific to your interface
If you are on Windows XP, try another OS or machine. Although it's not ideal, we have had less problems with Mac OSX and Windows 7. Windows XP has known issues with sysex transfers

INSTALLATION NOTE: It is recommended to recalibrate the filters and reset globals after installing a Main OS update. These functions can be found in the global menu

WARNING: If loading OS from factory OS 1.0 you cannot load the OS via USB and must load this OS over normal MIDI cables. From this OS forward you will be able to load the OS via USB directly

Known Issue: Unplugging the USB cable and then plugging it in again causes corruption on the USB stream. Power cycling the instrument fixes the problem
