comment Why aren't alternate configurations on the back of modern boxes?
@JoshDM I do believe that the LEGO Company has stopped displaying instruction-less builds, but sometimes you still see alternate views or unfoldings of the same build.

comment Communication between two Ev-3 bricks
It shouldn't be too much different from the NXT's Bluetooth capabilities, from what I perceive.

comment What is a normal range of reading of the Light Sensor using EV3 Raw Sensor block?
This question is a bit confusing - you're using which programming software and putting this on which brick? NXT or EV3?

comment Is there a fix for an NXT reporting “File error!” when running an EV3 program?
The NXT won't take programs from the EV3 programming environment!

comment Unable to connect to NXT using NeXTTool via USB cable
@cazyius You can reset it without the software... but it won't work until you use the software to put on the new firmware, which you were correct in this aspect - LEGO NXT Firmware has a special encoding that can only be done with the NXT-G environment (which means that you have to get LEGO's help when you make your own firmware).

comment Unable to connect to NXT using NeXTTool via USB cable
Oh, I was thinking you got the retail version with NXT-G on a CD-ROM. Well, I suppose they're not too different; it's just I'm not too familiar with NeXTTool, although I do use NeXTScreen a bit.

comment NXT Programming not working
It is the terminating which causes the problem. The easiest solution, which is not included in your answer, is to check the box "Wait till Completion" in the motor block.
