Active Spoiler after software update?

I have a model X P90D with the active spoiler. After the most recent software update, the settings were changed.
Before the update the spoiler would lower slightly when the speeds reached 45mph.
It would then extend back to regular height when speeds slowed under 10mph and fully close when parked/locked.

Now after the update, the spoiler remains closed and only goes up when speeds reach 45mph.

I know Tesla stopped offering the active spoiler but I was wondering if anyones "fixed" spoiler became "active" after the latest update?

I am still on 20.36.11 and staying there until my eMMC chips goes south and I have to prove it. First it was no more art work on USB music and now this.

Isn't the view out the back blocked by the spoiler when under 45 now? If so that is a safety issue.

And I suspect you have done the usual scroll wheel reboot and perhaps a power off? The other method is to change the wheel size and then change it back again to reset things.

Sounds like a bug. The US-required center rear brake light is not visible when the spoiler is stowed.
Why does Tesla have to mess with this?
BTW my ‘16 P90D has an active spoiler and I don’t want to lose that feature.

RossRAllen was correct. software glitch. Did a soft reset with scroll wheels and the active spoiler settings returned back to normal.
It was fun while it lasted. Reminded me of my old porsche panamera.
Glad that fixed it. Aesculus originally proposed this process.
Tesla pushed 2030.48.37.6 yesterday onto my X. Spoiler works properly, but I couldn’t find a way to refuse the update except to disable Wi-Fi. And I didn’t want to do that. I was very apprehensive that the spoiler functionality would be affected.

Have you seen less power consumption when the car is sleeping with this update? Mine went from 1% lost overnight to nothing after installing update. I haven't changed any settings and the weather is the same as last week before the update.
Actually, last night I came home with 89% and when I left the house this morning, it saw 90%. Somehow the car gains 1% range by sitting overnight. lol

Or whatever it does when it turns off... lol
When I sat in the car and powered it off from the menu, after sometime, I could hear the AC turn on and air coming out from the footwell. It happened at night so it must not be the COP. Not sure if that causes the drain.
