Updating inTOUCH NET with SKII Boards
All of the Infinitybox hardware can be updated in the field. Some of these changes require our inCODE programmer. Some can be done directly from a laptop. Updating inTOUCH NET can be done directly from a laptop with Wi-Fi.
PLEASE NOTE: YOU WILL ONLY HAVE TO GO THROUGH THESE STEPS IF YOU ARE DIRECTED TO DO SO BY AN INFINITYBOX TECHNICAL SUPPORT REPRESENTATIVE!
There are two different versions of our inTOUCH NET. As of January 2017, we moved to the SKII version of our board. If you have an inTOUCH NET from before this date, see this blog post for the updating instructions.
You will receive an email from Infinitybox with the files that you need to load onto your inTOUCH NET. Read through these steps carefully before proceeding. Before starting, these steps must be done on a Windows PC or Laptop with Wi-Fi capability.

- After the download is complete, run the installer. When prompted, only install MPLAB IPE, uncheck the box for MPLAB X IDE.
- After MPLAB IPE is successfully installed, reboot your computer.
