  • Setting option to change firmwares

    Does the current bootloader for the series 1 modules support custom start directories, etc.? I think it would be really great if you could switch firmware's via the settings option, and then the device could reboot itself into it. I naively envision this being accomplished by a flag being set when a particular firmware is enabled, and this flag is read at startup to determine the correct directory to use, and subsequently the correct firmware to load as a result.

    This is certainly not something I would want at the expensive of other development, but is perhaps low hanging fruit for a period when development lulls?

    2disbetter,

    Thanks for the suggestion. The current bootloader is simplistic and only supports one product image. We are reluctant to upgrade this functionality since it would require reprogramming units in the field in a way that risks them becoming unusable if something goes wrong.

    I appreciate the ideas.
