So, uh...how do I update my dongle to that latest firmware for running SimosTools?

There's no USB/micro-USB to hook it up to the computer and it doesn't seem to work over BT when plugged into the car. I can update the app itself on my phone but not the dongle. I purchased my dongle from my tuner, Russell Road and Racing

Not sure if it matters, but I noticed there was no obvious way to do it

When I open SimosTools it tells me I have v0.90 and to update to v1.03

When I go to Utilities and then firmware update it says its starting transfer but always times out
What phone/tablet is it? First case of the in app OTA update failing that I've seen so far.

Also, apparently you need to be running 1.02 at least for the OTA update to work. So if you're below that... you'll need to manually update on the PC. But future updates, OTA should be good to go.

That's probably why.

I'm using my phone, Samsungy Galaxy 24 Ultra. I updated the app yesterday but the dongle is running v0.90 and I have no way of updating it to 1.03 it seems.

Like the dongle doesn't even have a physical port on it or you just don't have a USB cable?
