Remote program update

Started by "S S...@gmail.com [rabbit-semi]" December 22, 2016
Dear All,

I'm running file tftp_get_firmware.c use rcm6700 and dc10.72a.
After downloading complete, always error verify.

Download completed, attempting to install.
verifying and installing new firmware
Found v0.00...
Attempting to install new version...
verify 0.00%
Error -1 verifying firmware
firmware image bad, installation aborted
attempting to restore boot firmware from RAM

Already test with other bin file but still verify error.
Can anyone help me ?

Thanks
Stev

How are you building the binary? Have you selected the correct board in the “Targetless Device” section of the project settings? Having it fail that early is a likely indication that there’s a problem with the firmware info structure in the first 1KB of the image.

With the RCM6700, if you have the space to spare, you should explore the power-fail safe options for Remote Program Update. In that instance, the device always keeps a bootable version of the firmware, and can survive a power failure at any point in the update process. The other methods will have at least a small widow of time where a failure would leave the board unbootable.

Dear Tom,
Thanks for your advice. Wrong board on targetless device.
