-  - Write firmware.bin to r0ket +  - The r0ket will pose as a thumb driveCheck that you have a new volume with a 'firmware.bin' file on it. Mount the r0ket if you don'​t ​get a new volume. 
-    * If any automounter is running ​you should ​have /media/CRP ENABLD/firmware.bin, write the new firmware by running: +  - As a normal user run the following command in a command window: 
-      * dd if=firmware.bin of="/​media/​CRP ENABLD/​firmware.bin"​ +    - cd r0ket-firmware-28c3-r6 && ​./flash-r0ket 
-    * If you don'​t ​have any automounter,​ you just have a new usb device like /dev/sdX(check "​dmesg"​ to find the name). Write the new firmware by running (as root) +  - The script should tell you, that everything went fine.
-       * dd if=firmware.bin bs=512 seek=4 of=/dev/sdX+
   - Turn r0ket off.   - Turn r0ket off.
-  - Hold joystick down+  - Hold joystick down towards the battery connector.
   - Turn r0ket on.   - Turn r0ket on.
-  - Write new dataflash image +  - As above look for a new volume on your system. Mount the r0ket if you don't get one. 
-    ​* ​If there is already ​a filesystem on the r0ket, the automounter ​will mount itPlease ​unmount ​it by running (as root) +  - <note important>​If you already ​completed ​the steps below beforeplease jump to [[init#​updating|Updating ​the dataflash]]</​note>​  
-      ​* umount ​/media/XXXX-XXXX +  - Make a copy of the following files to your computer: R0KET.CFG, NICK.CFG, L0NICK.CFG, FONT.CFG, pubx.key, puby.key and priv.key 
-  - Write the new image by running ​(as root) (again, check "​dmesg"​ to find the device ​name) +    - Don't worry if some of these files are missing. Your r0ket will still work. 
-      ​dd if=dataflash.img of=/dev/sdX +  - Now unmount ​the r0ket. In a terminal run the following commands: 
-  run "sync", wait until all data is written +    - <​code>​mount</​code>​ 
-  - turn off r0ket+      ​- look for a line like: <​code>/​dev/​sdb on /media/3355-4B37 type vfat [...]</​code>​ 
 +      - In this case "/​dev/​sdb"​ is the device of your r0ket. Make sure that the second path matches name of the new volume 
 +    - <​code>​sudo umount <device that was shown by the '​mount'​ command above></​code>​ 
 +      - Example: <​code>​sudo umount /​dev/​sdb</​code>​ 
 +  - Write the new image by running
 +    - <​code>​sudo dd if=dataflash.img of=<​device that was shown by the '​mount'​ command above></​code>​ 
 +      - make absolutely sure that you enter the correct ​device ​in the line above, or you can damage your computer. 
 +      ​- Example: <​code>​sudo ​dd if=dataflash.img of=/dev/sdb</​code>​ 
 +    <​code>​sync</​code>​ 
 +      - This command may take a minute or two. 
 +  - Turn off r0ket and back on, while pressing the joystick towards the battery connector. 
 +  - Copy the files from step 16 back to the r0ket.
