Firmware for Adafruit Feather M0 WiFi with ATWINC1500

by tkr65536 on Fri Mar 19, 2021 12:10 am

Hi,
The product tutorial states:

If you're running 19.5.2 there is no need to update to 19.5.4, despite what the WiFi101 library says it should work just fine and you could brick your device by updating, it is not perfectly foolproof! Thanks :)


The serial output of the firmware checker shows:
Code: Select all | TOGGLE FULL SIZE
WiFi101 firmware check.

WiFi101 shield: DETECTED
Firmware version installed: 19.5.2
Latest firmware version available : 19.6.1

Check result: NOT PASSED
 - The firmware version on the shield do not match the
   version required by the library, you may experience
   issues or failures.




While it isn't recommended to update from 19.5.2 to 19.5.4, Is it recommended to update to 19.6.1?

Thank you very much,
Teddy

I would like to try it, however, the project is time constrained (and the feather itself is actually owned by someone else) and so I'm worried about bricking it as per the warning here....https://learn.adafruit.com/adafruit-fea ... g-firmware

As a result, I think I'm going to stick with the current firmware for now, but if I do use this specific feather again before you get a chance to update the tutorial, I'd definitely give it a try.


Thank you very much,
Teddy
