This is an upgrade utility that improves the performance of OSVR HDK 1.3/1.4 devices that have not had the HDK 2 screen upgrade kit installed. It runs one time and upgrades various firmware aspects of the HDK. After the run is completed (takes about a minute), it can be removed from the host PC and does not need to be executed again.
As a result of this upgrade, the HDK will have improved responsiveness with faster reporting. (Note that this tool does not upgrade the firmware on the IR positional tracking board - that is a separate process.)
HDK firmware version 1.98 will be installed as part of this process; you may want to use the OSVR Control utility after the process to upgrade the main firmware.
There is no charge for this update.
HDK 2 units already include this upgrade. Please do not execute this upgrade tool on HDK 2 units (this includes devices with the HDK 2 upgrade kit installed).
