Bobcat Miner OTA Update - 12/17/2021

Dec 17, 2021 - Bobcat pushed the latest OTA update today at 10:00 PST

The following updates occurred in this OTA:

Bobcat Miner Firmware bumped to 1.0.2.65

This update was exclusively for Bobcat firmware and helps our fleet further adapt to changes brought upon by the activation of PoCv11.

Specifically, this update will address the following:

  1. LoRa Packet Forwarder Update Backport Function - This is expected to resolve witness/beacon issues some users have been experiencing in the past few days.

  2. Diagnoser Sync Status Optimization - The Sync Status will show loading when the LED status is yellow and the miner is loading snapshot. This happens when: (a) the miner is falling behind; (b) the db is broken (c) the db is automatically being cleared to free up disk memory (d) when user triggers fast sync/reset/resync. Leave the hotspot alone when sync status shows loading and let it do its thing.
