its available for download... here: http://line6.com/software/readeula.html?rid=57
monkey should see it though if you have the midi interface hooked up and installed correctly on your machine...
doesn't work through the FBVMKII or anything like that (that i'm aware of)
as far as i know you have to use midi.

i'd 100% go for an m-audio uno
they go for around 30-40$
but they are the interfaces that line6 tests with internally, making them the most reliable for use with line6 gear.

I just got an M-Audio Uno.I was wondering how do I down load version 1.10 onto my Flex III? Also I have read about units locking up and so on, is there any irreversable risk in changing to version 1.10. Thanks for the help.

it's probably out of warranty by now, and I wouldn't worry about it.
If you search the forum you'll find a number of posts on this issue.
Registration gives you nothing special... except formal warranty coverage.
and as a 5yr user of my F3XL....
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND you DO NOT USE LINE6 MONKEY with the FlexIII.
Firmware upgrades FAIL more often than not, and backups that Monkey makes of your patchesCANNOT be restored!! USELESS !!
I hate to say it, but Monkey does not fully support the Flex series.
Use L6 Edit for editing and patch library management if you want to deal with Java (or Tweakwiz at vettaville.nl for C++).
If you need to upgrade/downgrade your firmware, use this L6 utility - that's what it was built for (by Line6, not me)

most likely the firmware would change your presets anyway... monkey is fine...
i would trust the official line6 tool before one from someone else....
you will want to use line6 edit, you can use that to backup your tones as well.
if you do have issues flashing the firmware, line6 will be available to help by phone/email.
there is also a safe mode option in that document in case anything goes wrong.
