I finally had a chance to checkout this new firmware load. I had bought a PocketCHIP that I received mid last year (kickstarter reward). I then purchased a couple of spare CHIPs the end of last year and decided I would load the new PocketCHIP firmware on one of those and try it out in the PocketCHIP chassis. Things went fine and my problem with trying to connect to my WiFi after boot was fixed!
Previously my WiFi would only connect if I powered up or rebooted with it enabled. If I started with it off and then turned it on it would never connect. So then I'd have to reboot to get connected. So this is a nice improvement and one I thought worthwhile enough to go through the trouble of reloading all of the software that I had installed, which is probably going to take some trial and error as I didn't make a list of all the things I've added or changed.
So I decided I'd go through the hassle of loading the updated firmware on the original CHIP that came with my PocketCHIP. I assumed it would be quick since the firmware was already downloaded. I was wrong! It downloaded another image.
So, out of curiosity: What's the difference? The original UBI file was named "chip-400000-4000-500.ubi.sparse" and the second download was named, "chip-400000-4000-680.ubi.sparse". Can you explain the file name format and what the differences are?
Also kudos for getting the CLI flasher updated. That's a very nice improvement in my book. I was one of those that hounded your support staff via email for images to flash with the CHIP-tools scripts.
