Best practices for upgrading to OSv2


#1

I cannot find any best practice documentation for upgrading v1.0 devices to v2.0.

If I reflash the SD card with the latest OS download, is there anything else I will need to do to re-establish the device, e.g. will the DEVICE_NAME change and hence new environment variables specific for that (now new) device.

Thank you.

Hello @dcmartin,

We are currently working on host OS updates which will support 1.x to 2.x device updates. Currently the only way to go for a 2.x version of host OS is to reflash a device. This process will create a new device completely in your application. The only thing that I can think of in terms of this migration is that you will need to set again the device variables (if any) to make it run with the same environment as the old one.
