Arduino 101 & Genuine 101 combine the ease-of-use of the classic boards with the latest technologies. The board recognizes gestures, and features a six-axis accelerometer and gyroscope. Control your projects with your phone over Bluetooth connectivity.
That is why it is very important to have the latest firmware and libraries possible.
In this mini tutorial, I will try to explain how to do it without dying in the attempt.
Let us begin1. Download the following files
Note.- Be careful to select in intel-arduino-tools, the correct branch for your Operating System and Processor Architecture.2. Unzip the files
unzip the files and replace the old one, following the guide that is in GitHub.3. Download BLE flashpack
Download BLE flashpack at GitHub and unzip, go inside an run flash_dfu.sh (Linux) or flash_dfu.bat (Windows).4. Open Arduino IDE and try to upload some sketch.
Note.- If you receive the message "Try pressing MASTER_RESET button", press it.
And now, your sketch it's uploaded and running.
That's it, your Arduino 101 is up and running.
I invite you to see and commented my other tutorials, your feedback, it gives me encouragement to write more tutorials.
