Still no LUA, mah. But if this update will stop the lighting from crashing all the time, I'm more than pleased ^^

Aye I think they want to get the keyboard working first before that introduce LUA scripting. Priorities really.

You will get to update firmware to 1.2 after you get the Software version to 1.5.108. Use the utility under settings/device.

Way to go Corsair! screwing up the firmware upgrade.
Why don't you allow downloading the file instead and manually upgrading?

Hello,

I'm also having a problem with this latest update. After updating CUE to 1.5.108 I also wanted to update the firmware to 1.2. After the firmware update dialog box with the progress bar opened and closed quickly (I guess it updated quickly) I could no longer access the Profiles Option and on Settings - Device the keyboard is listed with Status: Malfunction. At this point another firmware update if started will get stuck at 3%.

It failed for me, too, at least for the first attempt.

Just unplugging and plugging it in again worked for me.

I had this when I bought the keyboard few months ago and the solution was to update using USB 2 ports only.
But in my current case, it doesn't help at all.

I've done it several times and used different ports as well. USB2 and 3. nothing works.

ok I was able to fix this firmware update issue.
1. Make sure that if you use USB 3, use Intel port and not 3rd party vendor like ASmedia.
2. Go to your Corsair installation folder in program files
3. Right click on the Corsair folder and select Properties
4. Then select the Security tab
5. Click on Edit button
6. Make sure that Users and also TrustedInstaller has full control
7. Restart CUE and update firmware.

Let me know if it's working for you.

By the way, flickering issue is alive and kicking.

Ok guys, let me provide some more details. As I've said I believe that immediately after updating the CUE software to 1.5.108 I managed to update the firmware to 1.20 - but it was so fast I don't remember noticing a strict confirmation dialog.

After the firmware update is when I lost access to my Profiles option and in Settings-Device I got the following:
*Firmware ??
*Bootloader ??
*Status Malfunction

However if I move the BIOS switch from the original rightmost position (1) completely to the left (position 8) or next to it (position 4) then in Settings-Device I get the following:
*Firmware version 1.20
*Bootloader version 0.11
*Status Works normally

Does this mean that the firmware is okay and the problem is with the CUE? Is there a way to be completely sure that the firmware is well installed and is running with no problems? I can't see an option to reinstall it so ...
