Note: You may proceed to the next step even if the pairing is unsuccessful, however, in this case, the firmware update will be for the mTiny robot only. If you would like to update for both the mTiny and the controller, you may try paring again after the successful update for the mTiny robot and repeat the update process from the top.
#2 Download Firmware

#3 Connect mTiny to the Computer
Connect mTiny with your computer via the original USB cable. Make sure to connect to mTiny with the end with mTiny robot icon on it.

Normally, once the USB connection is established, the computer will recognize mTiny's disk. Open it, and you will see a folder named "system".
#5 Remove Old Firmware
Right-click the folder "system" and select "Delete" to remove the folder.
#6 Add New Firmware
Extract the update package. In the extracted directory, find the folder named "system" and the file "audio_mcu_firmware.MVA". Copy and paste the folder and the file into the root directory of mTiny's disk.
#7 Disconnect the Device
Click "Eject" to disconnect mTiny from your computer and remove the USB cable from mTiny.
#8 Start Updating
During the upgrade process, the upgraded logo will be displayed on the mTiny display.
After the upgrade is successful, the "✔" logo will be displayed on the mTiny display and makes a “hi” sound and then the arm lights up green. Note: If the above phenomenon does not occur, it means that the firmware upgrade was not successful.
Please refer to the following pictures and video for details. The sound and the green indicator will show up at 2：11 of the referring video.
Note: During the update process, mTiny will automatically check its connection with the tap pen controller and the current battery level. The update might stop if the conditions are not met. If the process stops, please pair mTiny with the tap pen controller again or charge the battery.
