The Neatos that are delivered with Firmware 3.0 are a different hardware revision compared to previous models.

Previous versions (incl. the Vorwerk VR100) are codename 'Cruz'.
The new hardware revision has codename 'Binky'.

There's a bootloader you can get into on my XV25/Binky. I don't know if this is unique for Binky:

testmode on
setsystemmode PowerCycleCDC
The Neato then disappears from the USB, and reappears with a limited CLI that doesn't local echo and doesn't support most commands I've tried.
help
Cmd not recognized.
getversion
NeatoBootVer,2.0,0
upload code
File size invalid

There's more, but be careful.
Also, don't try to stuff the Vorwerk update into here.

That's for Cruz, and will probably brink your Binky.

Here's the version data before upgrade:
