6. Uploading custom firmware files

Submitted by frank on Thu, 2017-12-14 14:22

This guide shows you how to change the firmware, just in case you have the wrong firmware on your device, or you need to upload a special firmware.

In this tutorial we assume someone has the 410 firmware (for use with HW 4.10-4.12) installed on his VESC 6.x.
Don't use your VESC motor controller until you changed to the correct firmware, compatible with your VESC hardware.

The firmware for VESC SIX can be found here: https://github.com/vedderb/bldc/blob/master/build_all/60/VESC_default.bin?raw=true

Wrong firmware is likely to destroy your hardware. Always make sure to use the firmware that is designed for your hardware revision number.

check FW version


select custom fW


upload custom fw

Congratulations, you have successfully change to the correct firmware!

I'm happy I found this web site, I couldn't find any information on this matter prior to. Also work a site and if you are ever interested in doing some visitor writing for me if possible feel free to let me know, I know your know-how on this. I must say we should have an online conversation on this. If you are ever interested in doing some visitor writing for me if probable feel free to let me know, I’m always look for people to check out my best essay writing service web site.  Writing only commentary will close the discussion without delay away! And will restrict the benefits from this in turn.
