Bobcat OTA Update: Helium Only, Improve Packet Transfer
Bobcat OTA Update: Helium Only, Improve Packet Transfer

Aug 3, 2022 - Bobcat pushed the latest OTA update at 01:30 PST today.

The following updates occurred in this OTA:
1. Helium Firmware version updated to 2022.08.02.0_GA

2. Bobcat Firmware version bumped to 1.0.3.3

 

This is a Helium firmware-only update. The release contains improvements to packet delivery such that when a Hotspot sees a packet, it sends the payload right away to the Router (and thus, recipient) immediately. Data transfer reliability is expected to improve with this release.

 

See the Helium Engineering Blog here for details: https://engineering.helium.com/2022/08/02/miner-hotspot-release.html  

P.S. The original release announcement was posted in the blockchain-announcement channel on the Helium Discord. Make sure you follow all announcement channels to be up to date with upcoming changes

    This is also with me. London / UK here with bobcat 300. Light is always yellow and bobcat 300 will not allow me to diagnose it. It will show me some errors.

    Any way to fix this?
