When updating the firmware on the Kick, download the firmware you need below and then follow these instructions.
If you have an older Kick, you may need to update the bootloader. Instructions here.
If you try a firmware update and it fails, try again. A failed firmware update does not brick the Kick.

|October 28 2014||Version 1.90||file||This version adds a manual color mode. In color mode, the WB[+] and WB[-] buttons are used to change color instead of color temperature.
To start the KICK in color mode: Hold down WB[-] when you turn the light on.
The WB[-] button is the second button from the right on top of the light.If you have feedback and/or suggestions please get in touch at email@example.com.
|October 7 2014||Version 1.89b PAINTMODE||file||Special version This is a “paintmode” version of the firmware. The WB buttons are used to turn the light on and off and to change color.
WB[-]: Press to turn the light on and off. Hold down for blinking.
WB[+]: Hold down to cycle through the color wheel. It starts with red, goes through all the colors, then through the white presets and back to red. Sorry, there is no way to cycle backwards (there is no button to assign to this).
The WB buttons are the two buttons on top of the light, closest to the ON/OFF button.If you have feedback and/or suggestions please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org.
