Updating Device Firmware

The basic firmware upgrade procedure can be found below, please follow these steps carefully:

After you’re done with upgrading, you can use the Pymakr Plugins to upload and run programs in your device.

  1. Disconnect your device from your computer
  2. Insert module into the Expansion Board
  3. Connect a jumper cable or wire between G23 and GND
  4. Reconnect the board via USB to your computer, this puts the device in ‘firmware update mode’.
  5. Run the Firmware Upgrade tool

  1. Remove the G23 to GND jumper cable/wire

  2. Reboot the device (button or power off then on), your device is now ready to use

If you are having any issues, make sure the TX and RX jumpers are present on your Expansion Board, as the jumpers sometimes come loose in the box during transport. Without these jumpers, the updater will fail.

After you’re done with upgrading, you can use the Pymakr Plugins to upload and run programs in your device.
