Introduction

The list of firmware files shows all available firmware versions and bootloader versions for supported devices in a list.
- This requires an active internet connection.
- Files that have been imported manually via the menu without an internet connection will also be shown here. See »Menu
- See »Firmware Updates to learn how to install firmwares on your devices.
 
You can manage these files here, including download and deletion.

- Terms can be case-insensitive. You don't have to use capital letters.
- Feel free to use terms that are incomplete. For example, mad will include results for MADRIX.
- You may specify certain columns by using a colon [:]. Only columns that are currently shown and visible can be searched this way.
- For example: Prod:AUR shows all lines where a MADRIX AURA hardware interface is connected by referencing the column Product for example. If no column is shown that includes 'Prod', MADRIX HARDWARE MANAGER will search all shown columns for the specifically entered term.
