Released December 6th 2019
**Must Read Before Updating**
We discovered a bug that has a very small chance of bricking the headset during updates. This release will fix this for the future.
To safely upgrade to 188.8.131.52, please unplug your Vive Cosmos from the Link Box/Converter before you trigger the update. You may plug it back in once the update is finished, which will trigger a firmware upgrade and complete the process.
