Is it expected that we should be able to do an OTA upgrades of system firmware on Electrons yet? Using the CLI to attempt upgrades seems to have about a 50% success rate for me. I’m a little confused regarding the comments about devices needing to be customer product electrons. I’ve successfully and unsuccessfully attempted upgrades on customer devices and development devices. Hadn’t noticed a difference.
In general, the ‘particle flash’ CLI commands always completes successfully but once I’ve completed the 3 (or 2) system file uploads, the device often continues to report its old firmware version.
I guess my main question is: Are there tricks or tips to either increase the odds of a successful OTA upgrade of system firmware, or at least provide solid information on whether the upgrade was successful or which files successfully loaded and which didn’t so I can build some sort of automated mechanism? I appreciate that the documentation does say that OTA system firmware upgrade is not recommended for the Electron, but as many people here have said, upgrade over USB is just not always an option.
