Firmware 0.7.0 release is out on the Web IDE for Core/Photon/P1/Electron
released on production servers March 26th, 2018
Note: This is a Release and may be used for production. Any known issues are likely slated for 0.8.0-rc.3 (check Github issues). It is available by default for all devices. To use, select the 0.7.0 version dropdown from the devices drawer. Downgrading back to a previous release info is at the bottom of this post.
Note: If you have previously last used one of the prerelease versions of 0.7.0 on a Core/Photon/P1 device, please re-flash it with 0.7.0. You must upgrade (locally preferred) the Electron system firmware to 0.7.0 first before you can OTA new user apps.
Note: OTA or YModem transfer on Electron (sequence required)
- First Update to 0.5.3 (if the current version is less than that)
- Then update to 0.6.4 (if the current version is less than that)
- Then update to 0.7.0.
Note: DFU over USB on Electron/Photon/P1 (sequence not required)
- You may update to 0.7.0 directly, but make sure you have installed v1.30.0 of the CLI (check with
particle --version) then run
Note: P1/Photon Bootloader
The cloud will automatically update the bootloader on P1/Photon devices. If your device does not connect to the cloud, you should flash the bootloader to the device using
particle flash --serial. This should be done after upgrading system firmware.
Note: Downgrading [Electron/Photon/P1] OTA or YModem transfer:
If you need to downgrade, you must downgrade to 0.6.3(Photon/P1), 0.6.4(Electron) to ensure that the bootloader downgrades automatically. When downgrading to older versions, downgrade to 0.6.3(Photon/P1), 0.6.4(Electron) first, then to an older version such as 0.5.3. You will have to manually downgrade the bootloader as well (see release notes in previous 0.7.0-rc.3 release)
0.7.0 (see additional changelog 0.7.0-rc.1 ~ 0.7.0-rc.7)
- [Photon/Electron] WKP pin needs to be disabled as a wakeup source on boot to allow its normal operation #1496
