For instructions on how to upgrade your cBot software if you are on a version
earlier than 1.3, please contact your FAS/FSE or Illumina Technical Support.
II.
Upgrading cBot 1.3 to cBot 1.4
Using software v1.3 or later, you can upgrade instrument software from the
configuration screen using a USB flash drive. To download the cBot 1.4 software,
go to https://icom.illumina.com/Download/Listing/Software and scroll down to
cBot 1.4 Software. Please note that this requires an iCom account; if you do not
have an iCom account, please register for an account or contact Illumina
Technical Support for assistance.
1. Insert the USB flash drive containing the new software version installer into
one of the two USB ports on the front of the instrument.
NOTE: The installer must reside in the root directory of the USB flash drive,
not in a folder. Ensure only the most recent version of installer is present.

5. If a valid cBot installer cannot be located on either of the 2 USB drives, the
message below appears. Either insert a valid USB key containing the cBot
upgrade installer and click OK to try again, or cancel out of the upgrade
operation.
6. Assuming a valid cBot installer is located on either USB drive, a dialog box
appears with one of the following messages:
WARNING: The USB flash drive must remain in the USB slot for the
duration of the upgrade process until the instrument reboots automatically.
Do not interact with the system during the upgrade.
Upon completion of the upgrade, the cBot instrument reboots automatically
with the new software version. The reboot process takes about ten minutes
to complete.
7. When the cBot reboot is complete and the login screen appears, you can
remove the USB flash drive.
8. Following installation, please confirm in the About box (as detailed in the
introduction) that the software has been updated to version 1.4. Note that
the cBot 1.4 installation will update with v8 recipes required for use with
TruSeq v3 cBot cluster generation kits for HiSeq/HiScanSQ.
