This is a Bash script. Bash scripts must be run in a Bash shell. So this document primarily covers how to install Cygwin on windows only so you have access to a Bash Shell. If you are already familiar with BASH please disregard the information below and simply run the script. You can download it HERE. Alternatively, if you would like to pair remotely without a script or resetting using ssh check out the following community post: How to pair 220s to Cloud without resetting the codec
