Hi vik86​ and peter_fenn

Per this thread: OTA upgrade stuck at Restarting.. on the terminal window

I am working on avnet iot kit and i also facing the same issue of getting stuck at the restart point. Now if I do a hard reboot the device doesn't show any logs at all. I need to flash a new application if I need to get it work again. Can anyone help on this one

Thanks in advance for your help

Which application you download via ota_fr, why the size only 66KB ?

Does the application work if down directly ?

Its just a hello world printf program which when run directly its working. Even I tried a sample Timer program with that one also the same behavior is seen.

Hi Vik,

As you said I tried with the snip.ota_fr-BCM94343W_AVN download download_apps run but still the same behavior is seen

snip.ota_fr-BCM94343W_AVN download download_apps run

Can you modify it to the above build string and try. You are missing download. download_apps downloads it to the external serial flash alone.

Also I am working on a prototype board which uses the BCM4343WA1 module and the MCU is STMF405. We have an external flash also. So how can I flash those information about the app_look up table,etc to the external flash which is required for the OTA upgrade I believe.

When I debugged I found that in the wiced_apps_write some information is being taken from the external flash like where to keep the new image on the external flash etc. I am using dfu programmer or STLink utility to flash my image to the board, can I some how add these also as a part of my make target

example build make target will be like

snip.ota_fr-STMF405-debug

which will create your bootloader.bin, DCT.bin and app.bin which I will flash at particular locations
