Step 4. Updating the Jamstik+ with New Firmware

Q: What is firmware?

A: The basic definition of Firmware is the programming inside the main chip that makes the jamstik operate. Firmware updates can be used to add functionality, fix bugs, and add fine-tune the performance of the device. You've probably updated your iPhone or iPad before, from version 7 to 8, or 8 to 9. It's the same idea with the jamstik+, it's always getting better!

Q: Why update the firmware for Jamstik+?

A: It is always in your best interest to be updated to the latest firmware.  With any hardware product, there is the possibility of a bug showing up that couldn't have been caught even with the long-term internal testing of the device.  As reports and feedback come in, we're able to fix issues and remedy them for the end-user with a fairly simple update. When things are smooth sailing, we'll even have the chance to add functionality and features that provide a richer playing experience. 

*As mentioned, sometimes it's necessary to update your firmware right out of the box, as updates can happen after the manufacturing process.
