iBKS Firmware Update

ABSTRACT

This document explains how to update your iBKS to the latest firmware version. The new ‘iBKS Config Tool’ is also equipped with a DFU (Device Firmware Update) that updates beacon firmware Over The Air when a new version is available.

AUDIENCE

This document is primarily for users with basic knowledge of beacon configuration.

IMPORTANT

Firmware versions that can be updated:

  • EDSTEID V5.XXXX.XX.XX.X
  • EDST V3.2015.11.10.1
  • EDST V3.2015.07.21.1
  • ID.V2.2015.03.30.1

The new iBKS Config Tool requires Android version 5.0 or higher
