Does LeJOS overwrite LEGO firmware on EV3?

Postby fgfanta » Fri Dec 05, 2014 1:08 am

I have prepared an SD card as per instructions at http://sourceforge.net/p/lejos/wiki/Installing%20leJOS/. When I boot the brick with the prepared SD card inserted for the first time, so it starts with LeJOS, will it overwrite the LEGO firmware?

Also, ffter the boot, do I need to leave the SD card inside, or can I remvove it?

Thanks!

No leJOS does not overwrite the Lego firmware. Yes you will need to leave the SD card in the EV3 to run leJOS. If you remove it then the standard firmware will be loaded.
