TinyBooter and In-Field Update


#1

Seeing as how SDK Version 2013 R2 (v1.0.5) August 26, 2013 uses TinyBooter 4.2.11.0, does this mean I can no longer use IFU to update boards with a previous TinyBooter version?

Will TinyBooter be changing in every new SDK?


#2

It should not change. Only rarely


#3

As I understand it, a TinyBooter change pretty much makes it impossible to update boards with one TinyBooter version to a different TinyBooter version using IFU. Is this assumption correct? Is GHI Firmware tied to a specific TinyBooter version (as in, can I use the latest firmware with an older TinyBooter rev)?


#4

It is not recommended to use an older tinybooter if there is a newer version available but will 99.9% work just fine.

Since we are reaching maturity on 4.2, new SDK releases will not have a tinybooter update typically.
