Over the air firmware updates

Post by andydrizen » Wed Jan 08, 2020 10:07 pm

Hi,

For my WiFi-connect IoT project, I am freezing my python code in the firmware and flashing it to the device. I do this to alleviate RAM issues.

The question is: once this device ships, is it possible for the user to update to my latest code/firmware over the air?

To do that you would have to update the firmware, that's a platform-dependent operation...
