Firmware Update Release 12 update version Problems


#1

When following the instructions at
http://source.sierrawireless.com/resources/legato/wpfirmwarerelease/

and updating the firmware to Release 12
swiflash -m WP85XX -i WPx5xx_Release-12_GENERIC.spk

I get the following conflicting information regarding the version and date of Linux(Yocto+legato?) when I log in to the Mangoh platform after the Swiflash completes successfully

Is this a problem,?

Ultimately what I want to do is update to the latest firmware and then download the Yocto-WP85.CDE file so that I can get bluetooth drivers as per this instruction

however when I swiflash the yocto-_wp85.cwe
file after a successful build, I see that the version of Linux that is reported on login, is not changed.

What other tools are available to query the version of hardware running from the Mangog shh console?

Many thanks
Jason

Hi Jason,
This doesnt seem like a problem. We need to update the instructions to say that the file name will be changed as the version for legato is updated (every 3 months or so).

Thanks Ashish,
How can I be certain of what version of all the firmware, including Yocto and Legato that I am running if the login message displays the old version name?

What commands can I issue from the Host or from the Target Mangoh green shell prompt?
I basically want to make sure that the Mangoh Green is indeed running all the new firmware yocto and linux from
Release 12

cm info

legato version

should be the two commands to tell you if the versioning is correct or not. You can always update the init file and add some print messages.
