Bobcat Miner OTA Update - 06/01/2022 ( Further Improvement to ‘Flatline’ Issue)

June 1, 2022 - Bobcat pushed the latest OTA update at 07:00 pm PDT on 6/1/22.

 

 

The following updates occurred in this OTA:
Bobcat Firmware version bumped to 1.0.2.94 (no changes)
Helium Firmware version updated to 2022.06.01.0_GA

 

 

From Helium:
This release is mandatory for all Hotspot Makers. Contained in this release are further improvements to the flatline issue (fixes HTTP2) and enables mux.

Enabling mux allows all data packet traffic to be routed through gateway-rs and away from the erlang miner. This is a key step towards removing Erlang from Hotspots altogether.

This release also fixes PoC timing and lets a Hotspot retry PoC if a Validator falls behind and catches back up quickly. This release also decreases the amount of time before a Hotspot selects a different durable Validator if the first Validator is behind on blocks (from 15 blocks to 10 blocks).
