|VEX Robotics has recently released of a new version of firmware for the VEX Cortex and VEXNet Joystick Controller! This new firmware can be downloaded as a patch and will not require a new version of ROBOTC in order to operate (it is compatible with both ROBOTC for Cortex and PIC 3.62 and ROBOTC for VEX Robotics 4.06). However, the new firmware will need to be manually downloaded onto the VEX Cortex and VEXNet Joystick Controller (see below).
 
 
Before you manually update the firmware, you must make sure that ROBOTC's 'Menu Level' is set to 'Super User' mode. This can be done through the Window menu option.

#First, open ROBOTC and connect the Cortex to the computer.
 
#Navigate to the 'Robot -> Download Firmware' option in ROBOTC. You may need to set the 'Platform Type' menu option to 'VEX 2.0 Cortex'.<br /><br />[[File:Cortex_Firmware_PlatformType.png]]
 
#Select the 'Manually Update Firmware -> Master CPU Firmware-> Choose File'.<br /><br />[[File:800px-Cortex_Firmware_Master2.png]]
 
#Select and open the desired firmware file (for this example, 'CORTEX_V4_00.BIN').<br /><br />[[File:Master_Firmware.fw.png]]
 
#Click the 'Open' button to automatically start the new firmware download to the Cortex.
