Recently I have fallen for Battlefield 3 and this game forced me to buy a new gaming mouse. Early x-mas ;-) I decided to buy Roccat Kone+ and was surprised this mouse has upgradable firmware. The one I purchased had old fw so I decided to upgrade it.. However, it did not work and I did many attempts, turned on/off antivirus, and all other software that could block the upgrade process. Then I was advised to try older version of drivers and then try the latest one and this procedure worked… therefore I bring you step by step instructions how to upgrade driver and firmware on your Roccat Kone+ mouse..
Only in case the regular procedure with latest drivers ( 1.49/1.45 ) doesn’t work, please go ahead with the following workaround!
1.) Uninstall the driver completely
2.) Install the driver “1.45/1.40″
<<<In case the firmware update should not start automatically, do the following steps (otherwise skip step 3+4 and go ahead with 5!)>>>
3.) Go to your C:\Programs\ROCCAT\Kone[+] Mouse\FWupdate
4.) Execute the Kone[+] Firmware Updater.exe
5.) Now uninstall the driver 1.45/1.40 again.
6.) Finally install the most recent driver 1.49/1.45
This worked for me and it is the official procedure that Roccat advises. Feel free to leave comments if this worked for you too! Enjoy gaming with this great mouse.
