When I connect the VESC-6 to vesc-tool I am informed that the VESC has too old firmware and that the tool will only allow firmware update.
When I go to the firmware page I see Hardware version 60 with firmware VESC_default.bin in the two Included Files panes. I go to apply the firmware which it uploads to the device, taking less than 10 seconds and then the VESC disconnects with only the blue power light lit on the VESC. The tool claims fw upload done.
After I power cycle the VESC and try to connect, I am told the firmware is still too old and it seems the firmware update did not apply.
In each case, when I go to the firmware page the connected VESC firmware is 3.58 and the tool claims it only supports 3.61.
I have tried in Windows
I see other firmwares in the non-default firmwares view but none of them will update the firmware version on the connected VESC.
The tool version is 1.19.
