To reset your micro:bit to run the default program that came with it, download and flash this .hex file via USB. If you are unsure on how to do this, follow our article on How to transfer code onto the micro:bit via USB. 


The code for this first experience is written in C++, it will therefore not load in the Javascript Blocks or python editors. We hope to make versions for these editors available in future.


If you use this .hex file and wish to use bluetooth services on iOS 10 or later, you will need to re-flash the BBC micro:bit via  to enable pairing.      


The original source code for the micro:bit first experience, was provided by our friends at Technology Will Save Us and has since been developed by the Foundation.
