Getting to know the firmware version from my device

#1

Hey,

Is there a way to know what the version of the firmware of my device is?

I tried this but I don’t think this will get me anywhere:

if (!(“factoryfirmware” in imp.configparams)) {

server.log("Not running Factory Firmware");

}

In case I have to upload/update new firmware, what are the requirements I must meet if I must do this on the device side?

You can get the name, SHA and deployment time from your code (agent or device)

Thanks Hugo, It is helpful but only works on the board (imp005).

I should’ve been more specific and said it was about getting the firmware for the Device installed in the board (which is an BGM113).

I was looking at the uart library and see if I could access it through it, but unfortunately seems I can’t.

There appears to be a BGAPI packet for this noted here https://www.silabs.com/documents/login/reference-manuals/bluetooth-api-reference.pdf

… see the evt_system_boot message?

You can certainly reflash the BGM through the imp (we have commercial customers who used the BLE112/113 and do this in the field) but that’s kinda beyond the scope of the library.
