when the newer firmware is available I think the Matrix team will update the "Freedom Manager" to detect the newer files of LT+3.0,
and in case they didn't or you just can't wait, there is a way to make use of the newer firmware and make the Matrix Freedom Manager flash it for you.
and here it is:
In the "Matrix Freedom Manager" folder there is another folder called "fw" that contains the 5 current (LT+_v2.0) firmware files:LTPlus-0225-v2.0.bin, LTPlus-0272-v2.0.bin, LTPlus-0401-v2.0.bin, LTPlus-1071-v2.0.bin, LTPlus-9504.bin
when you have the new files of LT+_v3.0, all you have to do is to rename the version 3 files using the v2.0 labels, like this:
.bin ----> LTPlus-0225-v2.0
.bin ----> LTPlus-0272-v2.0
.bin ----> LTPlus-0401-v2.0
.bin ----> LTPlus-1071-v2.0
.bin ----> LTPlus-9504.bin
after this the "Matrix Freedom Manager" will detect LT+_v3.0 files fine (as the 2.0 files) and will flash them to the pcb without any problem.
To verify that this method works, i have renamed the file "LTPlus-0401-v1.92.bin" to "LTPlus-0401-v2.0.bin" and it flashed it fine to my PCB without any problem, so we're good to go with this trick
