Can we upload previous versions of Firmware?

Many schools in my area have been having difficulty with the new firmware for the brain (1.13) and controller (1.04). Could the older versions of the firmware be made available to teams should the choose to upload rather than the new firmware?

Hi ipanavigator,

We are still investigating the firmware bug that is causing these problems with the VEX IQ Smart Motor, and hope to have a resolution as soon as possible. In the mean time, we have posted instructions for manually reverting to the previous firmware in the VEX IQ Robot Brain, Controller, and Smart Motors. The guide and files are available here:

Thank you Art for emailing the older firmware. The robot is working fine now. Best of luck on diagnosing the bugs. I look forward to seeing what you all come up with. Thank you again.

Hi ipanavigator,

We have identified and solved the Smart Motor bug that was present in Robot Brain v1.13 / Smart Motor v1.04 firmware.

You can download the latest (v1.14) firmware in the VEX IQ Firmware Update Utility now.
