Bobcat Miner OTA Update - 10/26/2021

Oct 27, 2021 - Bobcat pushed the latest OTA update on Tuesday, 10/26 at 19:00.

The following updates occurred in this OTA:

Bobcat Miner Firmware updated to 1.0.2.36

This is a firmware optimization that ensures the EMMC hard disk always has sufficient space despite the rapid growth of garbage data. This in turn will help prevent hotspots from going offline or experiencing pauses in mining activities that are caused by the hard disk memory being full.

The EMMC memory on the Bobcat Miner is 64GB.

Important Reminders

  1. If your firewall settings have all of China blocked via restriction in both incoming and outgoing directions, your hotspot will not be able to connect to our device management platform and will not be able to receive the OTA updates.

  2. If your hotspot OTA version is older than 1.0.2.28, please fill out the form here. The team will check this routinely and update any hotspots that are left behind on a daily basis.

FAQ

What's the best way to check my hotspot firmware version?

  • Go to your Bobcat Diagnoser page and click 'Miner (5s)'

  • Wait approximately 5 seconds for the page to load.

  • Inside the Json files, check "ota_version" and "Image," which will let you know the Bobcat and Helium firmware versions you are on.
