Firmware update order

Unread postby net625 » Thu Jul 12, 2018 5:51 pm

I just got my go this morning and am loving it. I found that it's running firmware version 20180702 which is right before the next Gen update. Should I just flash the newest version from my PC and then do future releases from the SD card, or should I flash the next gen firmware from my PC and then use the SD card to flash the current release?

To use 20180710 version or later, the device firmware is required. Once the device firmware is flashed, it will flash the application firmware (firmware.bin) from the SD card to the device. There is no other supported method to write firmware.bin to the device.

Thanks for the answer. Looks like I was confusing a firmware feature for updating applications for a new method of updating the firmware.

I figured it out, I think. I used the esp flash tool to erase and then flash 2018712, it was successful. The go showed that there was no bin file on the sd card. I added the bin file to the sd card, not in the existing firmware folder, just on the sd card and the go recognized it and is working fine.
