How to start with FOTA
I hope someone can help me to start with FOTA. I have read this page: https://www.mysensors.org/about/fota#the-fota-bootloader. But still I am still not sure how to start.
- Does a gateway needs to have special firmware?
- If you flash a 328p with MYSysController firmware for the first time and there is no sketch loaded, how do you get the skets loaded as the node won't advertise itselfs to the gateway??
I know how to flash a 328p but I am not sure how to get the sketch on it the first time and MYSYSController does not work with my gateway so I am now trying MyController.
Can someone put my into the right direction?
Thanks for helping out..
No special firmware needed on the gateway, you only need a controller that supports the fota. Once you loaded the bootloader you should be able to load the sketch. Personally I prefer the dual optiboot method as it is easier to manage but it requires an additional spi flash chip
@gohan Well that's what I do not like. Is there any documentation arround how to start with MYSysController firmware for the first time?
Adding a firmware to MySController is easy, you just copy the hex file to the firmware folder then you assign it to a node with a right click. The most difficult part it to have the MySbootloader running on the node

@gohan the problem is that MySContoller does not work. Cannot connect to Gateway. The flash seems succesfull. So I am trying to use MyController.
what kind of gateway are you using? MySController only works with ethernet or USB/serial

That is odd... I have never seen that message
@gohan Disabled my Firewall and Virusscanner and now it seems to work
