The best way to upgrade your Movesense sensor is to use dedicated Showcase app. The latest .apk file can be downloaded from downloads section.

You can use precompiled examples or build your own application and prepare dfu package (How to start).

Upload your zip DFU package to the mobile phone and run Showcase app.

Using Showcase app for DFU upgrade

Android application will connect and ask if it is ok to flash the device. Click yes. Movesense will be reseted to DFU mode. The red LED should shine continuously and uploading process should start. Depends on package you choose w/wo bootloader there could be two or one uploading process. After successful update the "Updated successfully" message should be displayed.

Different scenarions

There could be situation that build package contains faulty application (it can simply happen during development process of own application). There is mechanism to put Movesense into DFU mode manually. Please refer to description in FAQ - How to use DFU recovery mode?. Then the Movesense device will be visible as "DfuTarg" with different BT-MAC address. The device is also visible as "DfuTarg" if the upgrade process is interrupted for a some reason.
