Vive Tracker firmware won't update to latest version

Recommended Posts

I have six Vive Trackers (2.0). I am having trouble getting them all to remain tracking, and getting the 10016 error (as in this thread). I think it is down to one particular tracker (though I am also trying to figure out if it might be a problem with a faulty dongle, as others have found.

But through the SteamVR system report I found something which might be relevant: the tracker in question seems to be on an older firmware than the other 5 trackers, and I can't seem to update it. These are all the bits of the system info that are different between the working and faulty tracker:


Working Trackers (x5)

Firmware: 1518829406 watchman@runner-watchman 2018-02-17 FPGA 531(2.19/0/2) BL 0 VRC 1518829406 Radio 1518811657

Watchman Firmware: 1518829406 / 0 (2018-02-17)

Watchman FPGA: 531 / 0 (2.19)

VRC Version: 1518829406 / 0 (2018-02-17)

Faulty Tracker (x1)

Firmware: 1513896911 watchman@runner-watchman 2017-12-21 FPGA 528(2.16/7/2) BL 0

Watchman Firmware: 1513896911 / 0 (2017-12-21)

Watchman FPGA: 528 / 0 (2.16)

VRC Version: 1513896911 / 0 (2017-12-21)

Radio Version: 1511378641 / 0 (2017-11-22)


If I go to SteamVR->Devices->Update Firmware, it says the Tracker is up to date though. And when I get the 10016 error and click on the 'Update Firmware' button that appears then, it just seems to try to update the HMD firmware. No matter what I try, I cannot seem to get this tracker to update to the latest firmware.


Anyone know what's going on here?
