Eye-Fi Pro X2 EOL - X2 Utility for PC/Mac released to enable use after 09/15/2016

August 31, 2016

To the users of Eye-Fi X2 and Earlier Generation Eye-Fi cards:

Last month we announced the “End of Life” (EOL) of a range of products including Eye-Fi Pro X2 and prior products. For details on that announcement please click HERE. There is new information contained in this announcement.

Note: Eyefi Mobi and Mobi Pro customers are not impacted by this EOL process.


This notice is to inform you that Eyefi has completed work on a new desktop software utility – the X2 Utility (X2U) for the PC and Mac – that will permit cards impacted by the EOL to continue operating beyond the deadline of September 15, 2016.

As a reminder, after September 15, 2016 Eye-Fi Center desktop software will no longer have the ability to configure Eye-Fi X2 and other cards impacted by the EOL. Customers wishing to use the X2U will have to uninstall Eye-Fi Center from their computer prior to installing the new utility. Once the X2U is installed and activated, cards impacted by the EOL will have ability to continue transferring images to a desktop computer.

The X2U is provided to users free of charge as-is and without warranty or helpdesk support. We have published knowledge base documentation on how to set-up and use the X2U.

X2 Utility Highlights

Support for Pro X2 and all earlier generation products with the “Eye-Fi” branding as well as 3rd party branded cards from SanDisk and Visioneer

Activation and set-up of cards to transfer images to a PC or Mac via an infrastructure or direct network connection (your Eye-Fi card must have the ability to do Direct Mode transfers)

Transferred images will be saved to a directory of users choosing but will be organized in a date based chronological order

Eye-Fi Center software must be un-installed from the PC or Mac prior to installation of the X2U

X2U will NOT integrate with Eye-Fi View nor Eyefi Cloud service: it will be limited to desktop transfer only

This utility is being provided to allow more time for customers seeking an alternative WiFi SD card solution. It is not intended as a permanent/long-term solution. The X2U will not be adding any new features beyond this one-time release set of capabilities.

In order to download the X2U as well as accessing further information on the utility, please click HERE.
