[SOLVED] My v1.1 arrived today

Postby jpj » Sat Jan 07, 2017 1:43 am

My Pyboard has arrived. Wow, it's tiny :D

It's running MicroPython v1.8.2 on 2016-07-13 and I see that 1.8.6 is the latest. Should I update that right away?

V1.8.7 will be out in the next day or two, you might want to wait for that. But upgrading is quick and easy.

Thanks for the tip pythoncoder. I'll wait for 1.8.7. Is this the current process to follow for firmware installs?

It's remarkable how much faster the STM32F405RG is than the ESP8266. The specifications clearly indicate the advantages, but loading and running programs on Pyboard are very quick in comparison.

UPDATE: I updated the firmware using Dave Hylands scripts. See this post for details:
