Firmware 0.8.0-rc.9 Pre-release for Core/Photon/P1/Electron

released on July 30th, 2018

:pencil: Please read all notes in the Notes Festival :tada: below

Note: This is a release candidate for 0.8.0 default so please do test on your systems.

Note: This is a pre-release and is not intended for production yet. We’ve tested this pre-release to the best of our ability and we want to know what you think now! Please understand that some care and attention is necessary when testing this pre-release, and be sure to upgrade to the final release when it’s available. It will not be available by default. To use you must select the version dropdown from the devices drawer. Downgrading back to the current release info is at the bottom of this post.

Note: OTA or YModem transfer on Electron (sequence required)

  1. First Update to 0.5.5 (if the current version is less than that)
  2. Then update to 0.6.4 (if the current version is less than that)
  3. Then update to 0.7.0 (if the current version is less than that)
  4. Then update to 0.8.0-rc.9

Note: DFU over USB on Electron/Photon/P1 (sequence not required)

  • You may update to 0.8.0-rc.9 directly first, flash the system firmware (attached above) in order 1,2(,3) to the device using particle flash --usb <system-part.bin>. See the next note about the bootloader if you are offline!

Note: P1/Photon Bootloader
The Cloud will automatically update the bootloader on P1/Photon devices if your device is online. If your device does not connect to the cloud and it is offline, you should flash the bootloader to the device using particle flash --serial <bootloader.bin>. This should be done after upgrading system firmware. The Electron bootloader is applied automatically from it’s own system parts.

Note: Downgrading [Electron/Photon/P1] OTA or YModem transfer:
If you need to downgrade, you must downgrade to 0.7.0 and then 0.6.3(Photon/P1), 0.6.4(Electron) to ensure that the bootloader downgrades automatically. When downgrading to older versions, downgrade to 0.7.0 first, then 0.6.3(Photon/P1), 0.6.4(Electron), then to an older version such as 0.5.5.

BREAKING CHANGES

  • Beginning with 1.0.0 release, Particle.publish() and Particle.subscribe() methods will require event scope to be specified explicitly.

  • [Core/Photon/P1] WiFi.RSSI() must be cast to int8_t when used inline with Serial.print() to produce correct results. E.g. Serial.printlnf("%d", (int8_t) WiFi.RSSI() ); Electron is not affected. #1423

Hi friends!

We just updated release/stable and master branches of the device-os repo to be current with release/v1.0.0.

Because we had to force push these changes, you’ll likely have merge conflicts if you git pull the latest changes for those branches. Because of this you will need to hard reset your local copy of each branch to match the remote.

:warning: Before doing this, make sure you save any changes you have been making in your local copy of release/stable or master (hopefully you are not doing that though and using a feature/branch based on these :wink: )

Hard Reset release/stable

git checkout release/stable && git fetch origin && git reset --hard origin/release/stable

Hard Reset master

git checkout master && git fetch origin && git reset --hard origin/master

You should now be sync’d up again with the most recent release/stable and master

Rename the repo to device-os

We also renamed the repo from firmware to device-os and you may update your local clone as follows:

git remote set-url origin git@github.com:particle-iot/device-os.git

Device OS 1.0.1-rc.1 Release Candidate is out on the Web IDE for (Core/Photon/P1/Electron)

released on February 4th, 2019


:white_check_mark: This 1.0.1-rc.1 Release Candidate will be defaulted to 1.0.1 on Feb. 18th, 2019 unless there are regressions found that require further patches. :pencil2:️ Testing on your applications is encouraged and appreciated, thank you! :bowing_man:


Note: This is a Release Candidate (RC) and is not intended for production yet. We’ve tested this RC to the best of our ability and we want to know what you think now! Please understand that some care and attention is necessary when testing this RC, and be sure to upgrade to the final release when it’s available. This RC will not be available by default. To use you must select the version dropdown from the devices drawer. Downgrading back to the current release info is at the bottom of this post.

Note: OTA or YModem transfer on Electron (sequence required)

  1. First Update to 0.5.5 (if the current version is less than that)
  2. Then update to 0.6.4 (if the current version is less than that)
  3. Then update to 0.7.0 (if the current version is less than that)
  4. Then update to 1.0.1-rc.1

Note: DFU over USB on Electron/Photon/P1 (sequence not required)

  • You may update to 1.0.1-rc.1 directly first, flash the system firmware (attached above) in order 1,2(,3) to the device using particle flash --usb <system-part.bin>. See the next note about the bootloader if you are offline!

Note: P1/Photon Bootloader
The Cloud will automatically update the bootloader on P1/Photon devices if your device is online. If your device does not connect to the cloud and it is offline, you should flash the bootloader to the device using particle flash --serial <bootloader.bin>. This should be done after upgrading system firmware. The Electron bootloader is applied automatically from it’s own system parts.

Note: Downgrading [Electron/Photon/P1] OTA or YModem transfer:
If you need to downgrade, you must downgrade to 0.7.0 and then 0.6.3(Photon/P1), 0.6.4(Electron) to ensure that the bootloader downgrades automatically. When downgrading to older versions, downgrade to 0.7.0 first, then 0.6.3(Photon/P1), 0.6.4(Electron), then to an older version such as 0.5.5.

  1. First Update to 0.5.5 (if the current version is less than that)
  2. Then update to 0.6.4 (if the current version is less than that)
  3. Then update to 0.7.0 (if the current version is less than that)
  4. Then update to 1.0.1

Note: DFU over USB on Electron/Photon/P1 (sequence not required)

  • You may update to 1.0.1 directly first, flash the system firmware (attached above) in order 1,2(,3) to the device using particle flash --usb <system-part.bin>. See the next note about the bootloader if you are offline!

Note: P1/Photon Bootloader
The Cloud will automatically update the bootloader on P1/Photon devices if your device is online. If your device does not connect to the cloud and it is offline, you should flash the bootloader to the device using particle flash --serial <bootloader.bin>. This should be done after upgrading system firmware. The Electron bootloader is applied automatically from it’s own system parts.

Note: Downgrading [Electron/Photon/P1] OTA or YModem transfer:
If you need to downgrade, you must downgrade to 0.7.0 and then 0.6.3(Photon/P1), 0.6.4(Electron) to ensure that the bootloader downgrades automatically. When downgrading to older versions, downgrade to 0.7.0 first, then 0.6.3(Photon/P1), 0.6.4(Electron), then to an older version such as 0.5.5.

1.0.1
