    Download upgrade file and software here... http://www.hot-vapor.com/download.asp?id=143&i=143
    update file: RSQ update
    Software : HM Chip Tools v3.2 NEW

    1. Run HM Chip Tools.exe
    2. Click "open" button and select update file.
    3. Switch mod to "link" mode - remove the battery, hold down + & - while connecting USB cable to PC.
    4. Click "refresh".
    5. Click "upload setting".

    I tested this and it works. When i replace my battery the LED light remains on the last setting i selected.

    My laptop is in for repairs, need to make a way to do this ASAP. I dislike the LED its gimmicky in my opinion. I Picture myself sucking on a XMAS tree.

    I tried but this doesn't work for me. I downloaded and installed HM Tools 3.2, downloaded the firmware, took out the battery, held down + & - buttons and then connected the USB cable to the RSQ and PC.
    The RSQ was in Link mode and I'm able to open the down;oaded firmware file but clicking Refresh and Upload does nothing.
    I think the HM Tools app is not detecting the mod :(

    Sometimes the OS needs to download and install drivers in order to communicate with the board, what OS are you running?

    I'm running Windows 10. When I first plugged it in, the PC did download and install the drivers for the mod.
    I'll try again and see in case I over looked something.

    Update done. Screen rotated to right cause I like up button to be to the right just makes more sense that way. Startup logo says my name. Lights switched off. And setting remains there when battery changed.....winner

    For those on Win 10, check Other Devices and update the driver for STM DFU something or the other and then HM Tools will detect your RSQ.

    I can't change the Battery capacity to 3000mah, it just keeps giving me a grabge error. Firmware updated fine though and LED stays off even after taking the battery out.

    That was a mission
    I have learnt the value of the word “refresh” after going around in circles for a while there

    Press power button 3 times. Then 1 more time. Then press + or - to select between amps/puff time/puff count/battery percentage. Then just leave alone to end.

    Did mine tonight. Did not remove the battery, just connected, chose upgrade and download settings. Works a charm.

    Hi @rousky, I did not not remove my battery, just plugged in the USB cable, waited for my PC to recognize the device and then pressed + and Fire at the same time and selected "update". Then used the software to update the device. Very simple.

    Let us know how it goes.

    Regards

    Just checked the process, I was wrong above. When you plug the device into your pc the mod screen requests you to select charge or update mode. The options are only available about five seconds. With the update software running plug the device into your pc, select update and the device should appear in the top right hand corner of the update software.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards
