I bought LEGO 31313 but I would like to change the firmware for education (45544).

1.09H to 1.09E. Is this possible?

Connect EV3 with USB to computer, have Lego Mindstorm software open

Under Tools -> Select Firmware update and start he update

Brick will restart after firmware is updated

    This is the correct method. If you have the retail software downloaded, you will need to download and install the educational software here in order to access the 1.09E firmware and utilize its additional features (datalogging, etc).

Yes, this is totally possible and I have done it multiple times. You will need access to both firmware files though - AFAIK there is no menu to choose versions.

  • Thanks Phil, can you explain how to... or may be there's some manual or video to do it... I'm newbie and i would like to do it. Thank you very much
