    I tried as you said, but my bangle rebooted in the middle of the transfer. Nothing bad happened, just the transfer got stuck...

    I then tried again, but with the same result.

    Anyway, my "100-retries-approach" seems to work "reliably" and gives my the bleeding edge firmware (i.e., my thumb is bleeding)

    Thus, my current tips are:

    • if nrfTools give you the message
      xxx bytes were sent while 0 bytes were reported as received
      just retry - even if you have to retry approx. 100 times! (it still only takes a few minutes
    • after completion, connect the Espruino Web IDE with your Bangle.js and check, that the terminal displays the correct (i.e. new) firmware version!

    Ok, I found out that every retry added approx. 1% of the firmware, so I had to retry approx. 100x in order to get everything sent to my device~~ - at least, it claimed so, but my firmware is still the old one.~~

    Correction: no, it did update my firmware, I just looked at the wrong place. The best place to see the current firmware version is in the Web IDE console after connecting to the watch

    Ahh, I finally managed to connect nrfTools and Bangle.js (don't ask me how, though)

    But now it always tells me: xxx bytes were sent while 0 bytes were reported as received

    Any ideas?

    I'm completely unable to update the firmware.

    One problem seems to be that Nordic has changed how nrf Tools are working on iOS - the one that my Bangle.js v2 always reboots itself after running just a few seconds in DFU mode and I cannot get my iPhone to connect in time.

    That was quick - thank you very much!

    How do I update the firmware of my Bangle.js v2?

    It has less buttons than the Bangle.js v1 - thus, the instructions for the old watch should no longer be applicable. However, I could not find new ones.

    although we don't add VAT any more so the actual extra charge is probably around €6

    Well, actually, I had to pay much more as DHL Express handled customs for me - but I don't care too much as this will be the only developer device I'll buy and the Kickstarter edition was promised to not require extra customs

    I'd have thought for now the Bangle.js 1 forum would be ok.

    Ok, but good to know.

    It'd be well worth upgrading to a recent cutting edge build of the firmware

    I'll do so after charging.

    Thanks for your responses!
