  • Important information about 5.11 & 5.13 firmware update of Xbox controllers


    As you may know, Xbox Elite 2, Xbox Series X and Xbox One S controllers are going to receive a major update soon, and many users who participate in the Xbox Insider program have already got it. The new version is 5.11.XXXX+. reWASD 6.0 supports the new firmware for all the mentioned controllers except thу thing below:

    At the moment, Xbox Elite 2 controller connected via Bluetooth is reported as Xbox One, and so reWASD could not detect its paddles. We hope that the next iteration of the firmware will fix this issue, but until it is not confirmed, we do not recommend updating your physical controller if you use it via BT.

    Right now, you may get a newer update — 5.13. Please note that paddles are not reported properly with this one: neither on Bluetooth nor with a cable or official dongle.

    In case you have updated your controllers, you may check how to revert the firmware update on the console.

    For Windows 10-11 PC, please try the following steps:
    1. Right-click the Start Menu > Run (or just press Win+R)
    2. Enter
    3. Run (or press Enter)
    This way you revert firmware and will be able to use Xbox Accessories tab as usual. Once the steps are done, you should see 4.8 firmware version.

    To check the firmware version of your Xbox Elite Series 2 controller, please follow the steps below:

    1. Connect your controller with a cable or the official dongle.
    2. Open Xbox Accessories app
    3. Click ... button under the controller:

    4. You will see the firmware version on the next screen, at the top-left:

    The version shown on the screenshots is a good to go. You will be able to remap the paddles on any connection if you use this one. Please note that you still need to create 3 configs with unmapped paddles in Xbox Accessories before you start using them in reWASD. More details — in our troubleshooting guide #20.

    Once it is set up, you should see the following:

    Merci ! Merci beaucoup pour cette solution! J'ai cherché en vain sur le net une solution !
    Merci la communauté ReWASD ! De toutes façon, sans ce logiciel je ne verrai aucune utilité à utilisé une manette sur PC...

        Hi, is this still unresolved from Microsoft?
