If you have just received your HydraBus (v1.0 Rev1_2+), if you want the latest features you can update it (using USB DFU) with latest firmware with following steps:

Important: If you have bought an HydraNFC Shield board you shall only connect it on TOP of HydraBus (you shall push it strongly to be fully connected).

  1. Follow the step Flash and use hydrafw on Windows or Flash and use hydrafw on Linux depending on your system.
  2. When a Host is connected to HydraBus USB1 or USB2 (with a PC or any device supporting USB Host(also OTG) communications device class also called Virtual Serial Port) with the help of a VT100 Terminal you can use HydraFW console commands described in wiki https://github.com/hydrabus/hydrafw/wiki/HydraFW-console-commands
