@AR.Tommy and @Dirk_Anafi It seems that the 2.6.11 file is exactly the same as the 3.0.6 one. I put it on my Mambo and the version.txt file also says 3.0.6. Do you have the 2.6.11 firmware somewhere? I'd be interested to try it as I am having issues connecting with my Windows PC via bluetooth PAN.

Hey! I am having the same issue. I am also having trouble getting the old firmware onto my Parrot Mambo Fly. Also, did you ever end up getting this to work? If so, is there anything else you had to do?
