The Helium team has tagged a new 2022.02.17.0 firmware release for Original Helium and RAK/MNTD Hotspots.

This release adds a file that enables the OTA server to target updates specific to a subset of Hotspots for testing purposes. It also enables the final update to RAK/MNTD Hotspots so that they can receive software updates from RAK/MNTD directly.

For those Hotspot owners flashing new SD Cards for RAK/MNTD and original Helium Hotspots, please use this base image going forward. No action is required otherwise and all RAK/MNTD and original Hotspots will receive this update automatically over the air as long as your Hotspot is plugged in and connected to the internet.

Plan

We have been testing 2022.02.17.0 since Feb 16, 2022 12:00 PM PST. Current ETA for GA is Feb 17, 2022 3:00 PM PST.
