Hi

As I am testing QCA4010 board and EK from Silex, I tried to Over-The-Air upgrade firmware using TFTP. But even though all upgrade commands showed OK, it can not upgrade and continue to use old firmware.

I use SDK QCA4010.TX.2.1_QDN and demo/sdk_shell image

I wonder if you could advise me how I could upgrade OTA firmware.

Thanks

Son

You have gotten farther than I have. I haven't successfully performed an OTA upgrade because I get an error code 1008.

The documentation I have indicates the command to finish the upgrade is "wmiconfig --ota_done 1".

See https://silexamerica.com/uploads/common/142-00211-140-SX-ULPGN-OTA-Firmw...

Dear customer,

Is your OTA firmware upgrade is successful now? 

You need to use second command as, 

wmiconfig --ota_done 1 

 

After this just reboot your board, Yoou board will boot from partition 1 /OTA partition.
