Cannot update to FW5.2.

Hi.

I am running Vesc 6 MK5 and Vesc 4.12 in my setup. None of them I am able to update to new 5.2 firmware using Vesc Tool 3.00. Says that compatible firmware is only 5.0 and 5.1.

How to update the firmware? Where to find firmware files separately ?

VESCS seen some use and abuse, so they have been repaired a few times, MCU's were replaced and reflashed. But until now, updates installed perfectly fine.

Dear Ba1tuks,

I exactly have the same issues. I have 10* VESC 6 MK5 and I can update just 2 of them ==> to the 5.2 firmware revision...

I don't know why. The update worked perfectly and on the first time with 2, then, failed with others using the same process...

Keep me in touch if you find something.

Have a nice day

John
