I updated PiTool and re-installed Pimax Experience v0.0.84 and then tried the firmware upgrade on my 8KX.
It completed “successfully” (but way too fast) but still showed the old version of the firmware (.295).
I had to reboot Windows and run the firmware update once more to actually get it to update the firmware to .296.
I also tried rebooting both the headset and restarting the service (and PiTool) before resorting to rebooting Windows…
Oh, another note regarding the eye tracking module (and the aSeeVR update for that):
After updating the aSeeVR software (prompted by PiTool) to v184.108.40.206 I couldn’t get the calibration to work (usual stuff with the two green dots disappearing at the first screen where You’re supposed to look straight ahead), even after rebooting. I had to unplug the USB-C cable (I’m using the short one that came with the module) and plug it in again and start aSeeVR service again.
After that I could calibrate the module (tried several times also with un/re-plugging in between. Might just be me, but it works well (tried it in SkyrimVR and Saints & Sinners).
I’m just hoping we don’t have to run the calibration tool every time we start the aSeeVR service like on the usual release (didn’t try it out as I’m too tired - maybe tomorrow)…
