Technical Notes

  • A new version (1.01) of the LEGO MINDSTORMS Education EV3 Software has
    been released, to correct bugs in version 1.00. For more information,
  • Mindstorms Upgrade: 2.0 to 2.1
    This upgrade is for users who have Mindstorms NXT version 2.0 installed. It will not work for versions number 1.X. If you are running a version 1.x, you will need to purchase a license for version 2.0
  • Mindstorms NXT Updates for Mac OS Users
    If you are having problems running Mindstorms NXT on a Mac OS system,
    you might need to install this software upgrade:
    Note that there are separate upgrades for versions 2.0 and 2.1.
  • Mindstorms NXT Firmware 1.31
    This is the latest version of firmware for the NXT controller. (Firmware is the native operating system of the NXT controller.)

    To install the firmware, unzip it and copy it to the directory "Lego Mindstorms NXT / engine / Firmware". For Windows users, this will be found under C:\Program Files; for Mac users it will be under Applications. Then, use the Tools/Update NXT Firmware option of the Mindstorms Programming application to install the firware to your NXT controller
