How Do I Update DexterOS?

 

From time to time, we will release improvements to DexterOS.  To update DexterOS:

  1. Download the latest update zip file.  You can download it here.
  2. Place the zip file on a USB drive.
  3. Remove the USB drive from your computer and insert the USB drive into the Raspberry Pi.
  4. Reboot or power on your GoPiGo.
  5. After about a minute, you should see the red blinkers underneath the GoPiGo begin to blink.
  6. When the red blinkers stop blinking, your software should be up to date!
  7. You can double-check that the update was successful by placing the USB drive back in your computer: the original “DexterOS_update.zip” file should have been deleted by the GoPiGo on successful installation.
