upgrade roomba 4xxx firmware?

Postby JustinHoMi » March 29th, 2016, 11:51 am

Hey guys,

I was just given two Roomba Discovery 4210's, with build dates of September 2004. Is it possible to upgrade the firmware on these to 2.1g?

Are there any other custom firmwares with a better cleaning algorithm?

Thanks!

You need to find a scheduler remote with download cable. There is also an OSMO available to fix issues but doesn't add scheduling. You may be able to buy or borrow a remote or OSMO. Charging is improved and the roomba can run with broken wheel tachs. I don't think cleaning performance is improved.
