foc.us v2 - How to update the firmware on the foc.us v2 using foc.us+ connect
You should regularly update the firmware on your foc.us v2 to ensure you have all the latest features. This is how you do that using the foc.us+ connect app (which can be downloaded here)
Open the foc.us+ connect app from your system tray or run from programs menu
If you see the "No dock connected" please connect your foc.us dock.
Ensure your device has bluetooth turned on and then click "Forget Device"
Click "Connect new device":
The default pin is "000000" - six zeroes, this is the same as the default bluetooth pin on original foc.us gamer.
You can only update the firmware of the foc.us v2 once it is bluetooth connected. This is because the foc.us+ connect software has to read the current firmware version via bluetooth.
Now click "Check for updates"
You can decide what you would like to update, in this guide we will update the foc.us v2 only by clicking "Start"
First the application will check to compare the firmware version on your device with the latest version available.
If a new version is available you will fnd information about your device and the release notes for the new version. Click "Install" to proceed with the firmware update.
This will now prepare your foc.us v2 for update.
The app will download a local copy of the firmware before starting the update.
The firmware update is transferred to the foc.us v2 via bluetooth low energy. Because of this it can be quite a slow process.
So please be patient as it transfers the file.
I normally get a cup of tea at this time. Remember, for a proper cuppa the milk always goes in last.
Once the transfer is completed the bootloader of the foc.us v2 takes over and finishes the firmware update process. You can confirm the firmware version by looking in your SETUP info menu on the device.
