Cosmo Communicator has 2 processors, one running Android and the other supporting the cover display. There are 2 firmware upgrade processes required to update your Cosmo.

Upgrading Android firmware

The latest Android firmware should be detected automatically by your Cosmo if connected to a network. To proceed with the installation, run the Settings application and select System.

Updating the Cover Display firmware

Once the Android firmware is updated, it is recommended to update the companion Cover Display firmware. To do this, navigate and run the Cover Display Assistant app.

In case you experience failures flashing using the Cover Display Assistant, please try restarting the unit and flashing with 'Aeroplane mode' ON and 'Do not disturb' ON.
