It isn't anything you need to look at. You can view it with notepad but it is just a bunch of hexadecimal data. Just use the betaflight app to download and flash the newest stable release.

I get a no response from boot loader when i download directly from the betaflight app....so i thought i would download it to my hard drive and retreive it through local machine on betaflights app.....the software is .hex and my pc doesnt know
What to do with it? (Example ....pc will ask "what do i open this with").

Here is my board....
Are you saying momentarily connect these two "boot" pins?
Then what happens?

If you haven't already Download or update your driver files if you still are having problems with the boot loader.
