Hello everyone:)

I'm new to this forum and this is my first post;)

Couple days ago I bought KS14S. It's my first wheel, it feels great but I still need practicing.

Don't know If this has been mentioned, but there is new firmware v1.05.

It looks like speed limitation is fixed. I made upgrade (from v1.04 to 1.05) with new app without any problems.

Maybe someone with better riding skills than me (i.e. Marty:)) can confirm what has been changed.

Right now my speed limitations are my skills;)

Very cool. But where do I get it?

And this is a rank KingSong newbie question. How is the firmware updated. Any suggested "How-to" posts/websites?

Unfortunatly i am IOS user...But...afaik you can get the android "new beta app" from Kinsongs website....its english..

With this new app it should be easy to upgrade to the new firmware....as i have heard the newer firmwares only can be installed through the "new app"..

I downloaded the latest app from their website. I see no differences. I go to the Firmware tab in the app and all it shows me is that I'm using 1.04. I see know options for doing anything else.

Guess I'll keep an eye out for any Android users who know how to do this.

I took the plunge, upgraded to 1.05, and now my wheel doesn't balance :crying:

Everything appeared to go smoothly. I watched as the progress indicator went from 0 to 100 and the wheel re-booted. I can connect to it, reconfigure it, etc. But no balancing. There's no option for reloading 1.05 or going backwards.

Anybody have any ideas???

EDIT: OK, got it working. I had to click Lock button and select Unlock. I'm not sure what that's about.

Besides all the social crap, the Light Ring configuration is nice. You can pick four different colors from an infinite color palette, and now there are four different light show modes.

@Marty Backe

As i heard the 50% speed reduction was definitely reduced.....just did not have any numbers....

Now I need to run the wheel through the battery range. I'll report the new numbers.

Just to clarify: the latest version is 1.31 (go to "Me" -> "More" -> "About" and you see the version number).

The app can be also upgraded from inside via "Me" -> "More" -> "Version update".

This is a new security feature: you can apply a password, and then the wheel can be only unlocked with the password.

If the wheel is stolen, it is worthless for the thief.

But the firmware must support that, the 1.25 on my KS16B doesn't, so I can't lock it.

Does that mean that you applied this firmware and your KS16B would no longer work? How were you able to re-install the older firmware?

No, having a firmware that doesn't support this feature means only that you cannot lock the wheel.  Therefore there is no need to unlock.

If the firmware supports it, like seemingly your new KS14 FW, you must always unlock it, in your case without entering a password (or maybe only the first time if you have not set a password. That would be worth a test).

Does anyone know how to unlock speed limit with the new app?

When I'm trying to get code, the window in Chinese is popping up.

Don't know what it means:unsure:

I thought I'd get this code by email, but don't receive any message.

I can unlock speed limit with old app, but it doesn't work with new one:shock2:

Any suggestions would be appreciated :)

I unlocked the wheel with my old app. When I upgraded the firmware the wheel remembered my previous unlock so I didn't have to do it again. If nothing else, install the old app to unlock the wheel.

As far as I know you just need to enter the wheel's serialnumber into the upper field, then touch "get code". Thats all, possibly it must be applied with a further step by touching an "ok" button or something, but I believe just selecting "Get code" is enough.

But the important thing is to enter the serialnumber as mentioned.
