Firmware Release 11 available for HMT-1 and HMT-1Z1

Attention: This firmware release formats the file system to ensure a security and encryption. During the update a back-up of existing apps and settings is taken. However, there is no guarantee, that still some data and apps are lost from your Head Mounted Tablet.

How to do the Firmware Update:

  1. If you haven’t done so already, please update your Head Mounted Tablet to the latest firmware 10.5.0-04-C.HMT-1.G.
    You can download and install the update files under > My Programs> Wireless Update. Without the current version, Release 11 cannot be installed successfully.
  2. Back up all files on the HMT externally.
  3. Please make sure that the HMT is configured for the right eye update.
  4. Then download and install Release 11 (approx. 276 MB) as before under> My Programs> Wireless Update.
    During the download (the HMT starts several times), please configure a QR code on your PC on with at least time and date. Alternatively, you can of course also use the RealWear Companion app on your smartphone for generating the QR Code.
  5. If the release 11 is fully installed and the HMT restarts, this QR code is required and you cannot operate the HMT without it.

Official RealWear Release Notes:

  • Android Baseline Update to 2018: in order to fully support Android Enterprise at a system level, the core implementation of Android 8.1 has been updated from the 2016 firmware version to the 2018 firmware version.
