Firmware & bootloader questions
« on: 2019-02-01, 16:55:07 »
I noticed I am on firmware v.2,.80 (Control) and 2.81 (Radio) using bootloader 1.10 (I bought the system used). Once I resolve my connectivity issues, I plan to update the firmware to the same version on both boxes (unless that should be done as part of resolving the connection problems).

My questions are:
1. Are firmware updates cumulative, that is, can I upgrade directly to the current v.2.91 from the versions now installed?
2. On the Support and Downloads page, I noticed a reference to bootloader 1.13. Is this bootloader included as part of the firmware upgrade?

Thanks!

Paula,

Mike may provide a more detailed/qualified answer, but I have been doing this a long time:

1. Yes, they are cumulative
2. You don't need to update the bootloader, the current version you have is just fine
