- How do I upload my program to my NXT?
To upload a program to your NXT from nxtBlock on you iDevice (iPhone, iPod Touch, or iPad), you will need to follow these steps:
  1. Download and install nxtBlock Server to your computer (Instructions)
  2. Run nxtBlock Server on that computer
  3. Connect your NXT to the computer and turn the NXT on
  4. On your iDevice, press the "Menu" button (It is in the top right of the screen), then press compile and upload
  5. You should see the name of your computer which is running nxtBlock. If you don't, make sure your computer and iDevice are on the same Wifi network.
  6. Tap on the name of your computer.
  7. Will see a box popup that says "Uploading..."
  8. If all went well you should see a box that says "Upload Complete!"

- How are you suppose to pronounce 'nxtBlock'?
There are 2 "Official" ways. Both are fine, it's up to you which one you like better.
The first is "NXT Block", pronounced as N-X-T-Block. The other way is "Next Block", which is the way I like to say it. It seams to flow better, but that's just me, both ways are fine.


- nxtBlock Server crashes when ever I try open it.
If you are running nxtBlock Server on a Windows computer, make sure you have Bonjour Print Services and Lego's Fantom Driver installed.


- nxtBlock always tells me that my NXT is disconnected when it is not.
Make sure your NXT is turned on. If you are running nxtBlock Server on a Windows computer, make sure you have Lego's Fantom Driver installed.


- I don't have a Wifi network, can I still use nxtBlock?
Yes and No. If you have a WiFi card installed on your computer, then you can create an Ad-Hoc WiFi network and connect to that network with your iDevice. If you don't have a WiFi card, as on now it is not possible to use nxtBlock to upload your programs to your NXT. If this is the case with you, please email me and I'll be happy to add a way to upload programs without WiFi.
