An automated firmware procedure was added in Astfin 2.1
27 September 2009
It is now very simple to upgrade your Astfin firmware (both u-boot and uClinux). The update is working from u-boot and require internet connectivity of course. As soon as you start the procedure your board will check the latest available version of the firmware for your board, will download it using tftp protocol and will save it in the non-volatile memory of your board.
To start the procedure you need a console access to your board. Interrupt Linux auto-booting and type in u-boot prompt
You will get the information about the upgrading process.
Keep in mind that this new feature is introduced in our latest u-boot and you will have to update your u-boot manually in order to use it.
