The following updates occurred in this OTA:

Bobcat Miner Firmware bumped to 1.0.2.56

This update was exclusively for Bobcat firmware and released the following changes:

  1. Optimized the reset, resync, fast sync features on the Bobcat Diagnoser, which some users were reporting having issues with.

  2. User name and password are now provided in the prompt.

  3. If selecting reset, users will be reminded to use the resync feature if their issue is solely related to catching up with the blockchain.

  4. Blockchain height info will be pulled every 15 seconds, but only while the diagnoser is in use.

  5. Port status and public IP will be pulled every 10 minutes, but only while the diagnoser is in use.

  6. Introduced an auto fast sync feature exclusively for this update.

The auto fast sync will initiate within an hour of the diagnoser starting if the gap is more than 2400 blocks. This feature was released for this update only and will make it easier for hotspots to catch up and sync to the blockchain.
