- Step 2: Download and save to your desktop the USB Interface Firmware Updater. There are two versions. The first one is recommended and described further below:
- Step 3: Shutdown FS One V2 if you are running it. Close all other applications.
- Step 4: Disconnect your FS One V2 USB interface from your computer. (If you own FS One V1, the FS One V1 USB interface should not be connected to your computer.) Remove any adapter cable that you might have connected to the V2 interface. Do not have the transmitter connected to the V2 interface. Reconnect just FS One V2 USB interface to your computer and wait for the USB connection sound (i.e. for it to register on your system).
- Step 5: Run the Firmware Updater program (double-click on it from the desktop). Follow the onscreen prompts (see below). When the interface is detected, click ‘Update’ and wait for the program to indicate that the update was successful. Depending on your system, the process could take a few minutes to finish.
- Step 6: After following all the steps, you can confirm the update by running the Game Controllers app from the Windows Control Panel. The new name will be “FS One v2 2048”. If you click on ‘Properties’, the sliders should move when you move the sticks on your transmitter.
- Step 7: Start FS One V2. It will automatically show the new interface name “FS One v2 2048”. Before flying, calibrate your controller.
- Note: If you reinstall FS One V2 from the original 2.0 DVD, you must download and install the latest FS One V2 update so that FS One “sees” the 2048-resolution interface firmware. Download the latest V2 update
