ezb firmware manager does that mean firmware can be changed without using a pickit?
The EZ-B V4 x/2 can do over the air (WiFi) firmware updates. When released, there will be a hardware conversion kit for current EZ-B V4's. No pricing available yet, but DJ said it would be "affordable".

The current EZ-B V4 does require the pickit for firmware flashing, and as far as I know, only flashes the WiFi chip.
