In this tutorial you will learn how to update the Power Vision CX using Dynojet’s Power Core Software.
Step 1: Go to www.dynojet.com/powervision. Put your mouse pointer over “Support,” to bring up the support menu. Move down and click the “Downloads” option.
Step 2: Click the “Select a Product” drop down menu; choose “Power Vision CX”.
Step 3: Download and install the Dynojet Power Core Software.
Step 4: Download and save the firmware file to an accessible location on your computer (i.e. your desktop, a downloads folder, or a dedicated folder). The file will come in a “zipped” folder. The actual firmware file inside (with a .dfu filename extension) will need to be extracted before you can use it. Open the file with Windows Explorer. Click “Extract all files”. Follow the on screen prompts.
Step 5: With your Power Vision CX plugged in to your computer or vehicle, check your firmware number on the device by going to DEVICE TOOLS>DEVICE INFO>ABOUT and you will see the device firmware build number. If this number matches the firmware version number on the downloads page, your firmware is up to date. If it does not match continue installing the latest firmware version.
Step 6: Launch the Power Core Software. In the Application Launcher, click TOOLS>MANAGE HARDWARE. The window Device Manager will open and you will want to make sure on the left side of the window that Power Vision CX is selected.
Step 7: On the right side click INSTALL FIRMWARE, locate the extracted firmware file previously saved to the computer (the .dfu file) and open it. The update process will begin.
NOTE: If it is the first time updating the firmware, USB boot loaders will automatically install and may cause the updating process to timeout and stop. If you get any error messages, reboot your computer and try again. Make sure you see the “Update Completed” message at the end.
Step 8: Make sure the message UPDATE COMPLETED is shown. If you see this message, your Power Vision CX firmware is now up to date and you are ready to flash.
