Bobcat Miner OTA Update - 05/24/2022 (‘Flatline’ Fix)

May 24, 2022 - Bobcat pushed the latest OTA update at 10:00 pm PDT on 5/24/22. 

 

The following updates occurred in this OTA:

Bobcat Firmware version bumped to 1.0.2.93 (no changes)

Helium Firmware version updated to 2022.05.24.0_GA


From Helium:

This is the anticipated "flatline" fix. This release is mandatory for all Hotspot Makers. Contained in this release are chain variables to support Validator Performance (to be activated some time after Wednesday, May 25, 2022 9:00 AM). Failure to update your fleet before the chain variables are activated will cause the Hotspot to stop functioning as Hotspots still follow the blockchain.


This release also adds a timeout on gen_tcp connect on the HTTP2 client and monitors the connection to restart on unexpected disconnects.
