DABTools

Installation

The DABTools installer is available on our downloads page. Simply follow the link to GitHub and download the latest release version of the installer and run it.

If you have previous versions installed it will prompt you to remove and install a new version automatically.

Firmware upgrades

Note

Currently manual upgrades of the firmware are required, though this process is quick and simple. You will be supplied with an appropriate .DFU file by a representative of emteq labs only as and when it may be required. As the BETA program progresses the process of the upgrading firmware will be automated, removing this requirement.

  1. Download and install the DabTools.
  2. Download the .DFU firmware file supplied by emteq labs.
  3. Plug you emteqPro Mask into the PC/Laptop.
    • For Pico Neo 2 devices ensure you plug in the attached USB-C cable from emteqPRO Mask and not into the HMD itself.
    • For Open Face/Vive Pro this can be done directly to PC, or while still plugged into the Vive Pro. Assuming the HMD is powered on with emteqPRO Mask connected.
  4. Locate the .DFU file and Right-Click in Windows Explorer.
  5. From the menu options, select Flash to Device... Upgrade Firmware.
    Example Right-Click Menu for .DFU Files.
  6. The process will take up to two minutes to complete. Do not unplug the emteqPRO Mask or power down the PC during this process.
Note

If you have multiple devices it is possible they are different hardware versions and require different firmware to accommodate this. It is not possible to install the wrong version to your emteqPRO Mask. The upgrade process will inform you of this, in which case simply run against each .DFU files supplied until the correct version combination is found.
