Restoring Firmware Files for NXT-G

"Gary" has asked how he can restore system files on his NXT brick if they're inadvertently deleted. Here's how:
1) Open up your NXT-G software and connect your brick to your computer. Make sure that you're connected to the internet.
2) Go up to the "Tools" menu and drag down to "Update Firmware".
3) In the new window that pops up, click "download".
4) After a few seconds, you'll hear a multi-toned sound. That means that all of your original system files are now back on your brick.

why do you need to connect to the internet to refresh it?

When you go to the "update firmware" prompt in the "tools" menu, you have the option to check for online updates to the firmware.

If you're just reinstalling your existing firmware, then you don't need to connect to the internet.

Hi, excuse my English, my name is Ricardo and I would like to know if is always possible restore the NXT original firmware in all cases, I mean, if the original firmware is replaced by third-party firmware like leJOS or something like that ??
Thanks in advance.
