Installing and Updating EdgeTX

There are several ways to install or update EdgeTX on your radio transmitter. You can use the online tool EdgeTX buddy or manually install/update the bootloader and firmware using the bootloader method. There are advantages and disadvantages to both ways, so really, it boils down to person preference.

EdgeTX Buddy

Pros

  • Firmware and SD card contents are all located in one location
  • It takes you step by step through the process
  • Normally a simple process.

Cons

  • Must use a Chromium-based browser to access (Chrome, MS Edge, Brave, Opera, etc.)
  • You must have the correct SMT32 drivers installed on your computer. Usually, this is automatic. However, some computers install incorrect drivers, which can make this process more difficult.

Bootloader Method

Pros

  • Flashing always works
  • The flashing process is quicker.
  • Does not rely on your computer for flashing

Cons

  • Firmware, SD Card, and Sound files must be downloaded individually from different locations and placed manually on the SD Card.
Whichever way you choose, there is a guide that will help you. Below are the migration guides and installation guides for both methods:
