VEX EDR Firmware Updates
VEXnet devices contain internal processors and run on special software called Firmware (or Master Code). Firmware is updated periodically to provide additional functionality or fix bugs. To fully unlock the potential of VEX Robotics VEXnet devices, it's important to ensure that all applicable drivers are installed and firmware is updated. This page should help you get your new system up to spec, or return a device to its default/factory state for a "clean slate."
