Why are these P1 in my Product not updating?


#1

Hello,

I have started shipping my product and the first customers have connected to Wifi.

There is a P1 in my product.

I have added them to my Product in the console.

In the past, all my testing devices updated themselves when I published a new firmware.

But today, when I published a new firmware, they are not updating.

See this screenshot:

Some of them are on V5, even though V6 is out since 3 hours.

The only difference is the system firmware version (1.4.0).

Does someone know why they are not updating themselves?


#2

I guess v6 requires 1.4.2 - are the devices staying connected long enough to pull in the new application and the device OS update?
Could it be that users somehow interfere with the device update process?


#3

yes, they have been connected for hours now.

They also are connected to WiFi reliably … here is a screenshot:

There is no interference possible from the users.

Firmware does not touch any of the Firmware update functions … if there are any.


#4

So the devices run continously without and sleep periods, right?

Another question I forgot to ask: Could these devices be marked as development units?

BTW, would you happen to have some means implemented to remote-reset the device?
If so, that might be worth trying.


#5

Yes, no sleep.

They are not development devices.

I don’t have remote reset. I will ask the owners to hit the reset button.

And in future firmware will implement a remote-reset.

Also, I will try to compile my firmware for 1.4.0 …

thanks

@volker Best not to share in a screen shot the device IDs.:wink:
If you look at kitty_aardvark device in the console and click on Edit button do you have the device Locked or Unlocked for updates? Toggling the Lock/Unlock with Flash Now ticked will get the device updating immediately if that is what you want to.

Update - I have a remote command on all devices to complete what they are doing and then reset, I have found that since the Forced OTA feature in 1.2.1 this hasn’t been necessary to use.

It’s unlocked.

When I toggled to ‘locked’ it immediately does the update.

Thanks
