codeBit Firmware UpdatesUpdated 3 months ago
Does my codeBit need a firmware update?
For codeBits purchased prior to October 2021
If you have a Round LED Matrix, you must install the firmware update on your codeBit in order to use the Round LED Matrix.
If you have a square LED Matrix, you do not need to install a firmware update. The firmware update is installed on the codeBit at Sphero's warehouse.
For codeBits purchased after October 2021
You do not need to install a firmware update. The firmware update is installed on the codeBit at Sphero's warehouse and is compatible with both the Square and Round LED Matrices.
How do I Install the Firmware Update?
The firmware updater is triggered in Fuse when there is a round matrix block in the code, and if the connected codeBit does not have the updated firmware. Detailed instructions on how to install the firmware on your codeBit on a Mac device can be found here. If you have a Windows or Chromebook device please contact us for more information.
If I run the firmware update on my codeBit, can I still use it with the Square LED Matrix?
Yes, the firmware update is compatible with the Square and Round LED Matrices.

If that does not work, or causes an error, we can try this alternative:
1. Press and hold the button on the codeBit for 10 seconds (should turn the LED on the board red)
2. Navigate to https://fuse.littlebits.com/firmware/
3. Follow the instructions for only part 2 of the firmware update
