Improved firmware for LEGO Mindstorms NXT bricks


The NXT Improved Firmware is a community-based open source project around the original LEGO Mindstorms firmware for the NXT bricks.

The firmware can be installed on the robot control bricks of type NXT. It is almost identical to the original firmware, meaning that all existing software working with the original firmware can be expected to work with the improved firmware as well.

The main differences between the original firmware and the improved firmware are the addition of absolute position regulation for motors and that it can be built with GCC rather than the non-free toolchain used by the LEGO Group.

This package contains the firmware image file, which can be flashed onto the brick with various tools, e.g. fwflash from the libnxt package.
