This update only requires a 1 Gb USB flash drive format Fat32 and copy an unzipped copy of the NeatoRobotics supplied Zipped file that is downloaded from their site. A short OTG micro USB to Female USB 2.0 cable is used to flash the Botvac connected.

A 1GB fat32 flash drive is enough - this is what Neato says...

Has anyone else had their neato only update to 2.1.1 and not 2.2.0. I tried updating my botvac connected tonight and it is showing version 2.1.1 like it never finished upgrading to 2.2.0.

Lhartman89, look in the RobotData folder. Do you see a .bin folder with 2.2.0 in the name? Check subfolders as well

I figured it out. I had to move the Neato_2.2.0_296.bin file from the AutoUpdate folder into the main RobotData folder and delete the Neato_2.1.1_247.bin file. Then I ran the update again and now it is on version 2.2.0. Thank you for the help! For some reason it didn't automatically update like it was supposed to.

The robot must have not seen the 2.2.0 file

Good to see you've updated too!
I updated earlier today and I had to run the update twice-the first time it stayed on 2.0.0 with no errors

I ran the update about 4-5 times, tried re downloading the file and doing it again. I was trying to even find a way to do a hard reset, but it looks like that is not possible. Then I decided to try what I did above and it took. Like you said someoneclever, I guess it must have not seen the other folder/file.

I am looking forward to seeing how the mapping works/looks.

Here's what the mapping looks like
Teal areas were covered, white bits are walls and obstacles (not including mag strips) and the darkest bits were where Neato could see but not clean

Have you noticed any difference, beside the cool map feature in release 2.2? Image

Hello,
I am trying to upgrade from 2.0 to 2.2. I have followed the instructions exactly as the tutorial shows, and tried a couple of suggestions from this thread. When I press software update, the pinwhell spins for about 1-2 seconds the light on my jump drive flashes once then it stops.
I have tried 4 different jump drives, reformatted them all. I have tried leaving the .bin files in the root folder and just putting the .bin file by itself on the root file of the drive. The drive is clean and has the default name.

I appreciate any suggestions or help! :cheers:
-Chris

orangeblue, try redownloading the update files from Neato's website. Does your robot give an error message when attempting to update?
