Complete list of firmware versions?

I’ve currently got a bricked 8kx. This is the 3rd time I’ve been through this, and I’m currently working through all the usual solutions as I get time.

It would be very helpful if there was a repository somewhere with all the current and past firmware versions, as firmware flashing seems to be the fix most of the time. Anything like this exist?

Maybe a survey of 8KX users asking which PT/FW they find best so far?

@Playa had one.(He has it shutdiwn for now) Though just checked the Archive he sent me it does not seem to have the 8kX firmwares.

Which 8kX do you have? Original serial 2075 or the revised 2076?

Serial # starts with 2073

I upgraded to an AMD 7950X3D and ROG Crosshair 670E mb. Fresh Windows 11 install. HMD seemed to be working fine, but in setting everything up again, I switched it to 90hz and that was the end of it, bricked.

Tried manually updating firmware to 262, 271, and 290 with no effect. I’ve got the “Plugin USB and HDMI/DP” error. Firmware is successfully updating, just not fixing the problem. Google searches give me a ton of conflicting info, multiple firmware versions with no explanation of what HMD they are for, and a few info pages from Pimax which barely make sense.

Tried rolling back Nvidia drivers as well.

296 firmware might work. Might be an idea to file a ticket just in case.


If your device starts with SN2073, you may try the M299 version.
I have asked the tech specialist and they recommend this.

You may download the firmware via this google link.

Firmware update fixed the problem, thanks.

Now, is there a way to get this thing to run at 90hz? Every time I select 90, it bricks again.

Are you using the Fiber Op cable?

Also which Nvidia card do you have? Include brand.
