In addition to Merry K[ernal]-mas, there’s another update afoot! Most of you seem to be using the Chrome web flasher, but those who err on the side of FOSS have been asking for a while about when the newer images would be available with the SDK, so here we go!
- The CHIP-SDK and CHIP-tools have been updated to handle our new image format, both in terms of flashing and image creation.
- Image caching was added to save on download time across image types.
-hflag was added to
chip-update-firmware.shfor a help prompt that will now provide a quick explanation of all supported flashing flags, like
- New images of every type [even Buildroot]!
- PocketCHIP now flashable from terminal.
Be sure to run the new
setup_ubuntu1404.sh script before using the flashing tools to get all the appropriate dependencies set up.
