    Updating Firmware procedure

    This was addressed on another thread, lost it and cannot retrieve to report my progress so here is what I have.....

    Have my PC connected to the Vortex by the mini USB cable. The Immersion Update Config. Tools v1.42.4 page downloaded, but I cannot get the computer to recognize that the vortex is connected. Need to get through this step so that I can run the Programs page, then update the firmware.

    What do I need to do to get the PC to recognize that the Vortex is connected ?

    Hi cary.

    I would suggest you to use vortex-configurator rather than ImmersionRCTools (even if it should work)

    You need to make sure a lipo is connected as well as vortex is not powered via USB cable.

    Then make sure the drivers are correctly installed ( you can install it manually by running "C:\Program Files (x86)\ImmersionRC\ImmersionRCTools\DPInst64.exe" )

    Then try the following:

    1. Plug lipo
    2. Wait init sequence completed ( led board is flashing all in green when init done )
    3. Connect USB
    4. Check in Device Manager under Ports (COM & LPT) if you have a device listed with a name like: ImmersionRC USB to UART
    --> If not, then maybe you have a USB issue, try another cable
    5. Open ImmersionRCTools
    6. Select Vortex\Vortex 250 Pro Configure tab and click Read Settings From Vortex

    To Upgrade just go step 1-> 5, then:
    Select Vortex\Vortex 250 Pro Program tab and click Update Firmware (with latest vortex, you don't have to use the fusion board button to force bootloader mode, it's only necessary to use it in case of a bricked OSD )

    Please give it a try and let me know how it works.
