In my defense, the instructions from the 2.9 updated seemed to indicate that all future updates would be straight from the existing HX Edit:
"Update Firmware From HX Edit
Helix Floor, Helix Rack / Control, Helix LT, HX Effects, HX Stomp
Instead of hanging out on social media, desperately asking when the next firmware’s dropping, you can now, I dunno, actually play guitar? As soon as a new update becomes available, HX Edit will tell you, and all you gotta do is follow the prompts."
That's what I did. When I opened it up, it gave me the option to Update and I followed the prompts. There WERE no instructions listed with this update so I assumed that this is what I should do.
Maybe I'm not the one NOT researching.
