How to Update VEX IQ Firmware
Sometimes the VEX IQ Robot Brain displays a message that a firmware update is needed for a device.
Step 1: Connect the device to the Brain, and the Brain to the computer.
- Make sure the device is properly plugged into the Brain and that the Brain is turned on.
- Connect the Micro USB side to the Brain and the USB side to the computer.
Step 2: Update with the VEXos Utility.
- Open the VEXos Utility.
NOTE: The parts that need to be updated are highlighted in yellow.
- Click the “Install” button in the VEXos Utility and do not disconnect any cables or close the utility until the update is complete.
NOTE: The Brain might reboot during the update process. Only turn the brain back on if prompted to do so.
- Listen and watch for a cheering sound and the message “All connected VEX products are up to date.” Then the firmware update is complete and you can disconnect the Brain from the computer.
NOTE: Up-to-date devices are now highlighted in green.
