Hi

We have written  FR_APP, DCT_IMAGE, OTA_APP, APP0 and APP1 to the external flash using make Target "snip.ourapp-ISM43362_M3G_L44 download download_apps run" in SDK 3.1.2

But when ourapp starts up and try to set the boot from the OTA app using following code, the FR_APP starts instead of the OTA app.

void application_start( )

{

  /* Initialize Wiced system */

    wiced_init();

.....

  wiced_framework_set_boot( DCT_OTA_APP_INDEX, PLATFORM_DEFAULT_LOAD );

  WPRINT_APP_INFO(("Restarting...\r\n"));

  wiced_framework_reboot( );

.....

}

We are stuck in this issue and need urgent help.

Thanks

Hi Tiger,

Was the wiced_waf_app_set_boot() able to get the app header location of OTA_APP and update the dct? Please look into which part it fails inside the function to get more information. The function is located in

     /SDK/WICED/platform/MCU/wiced_waf_common.c

Thanks,

Jaeyoung

Hi,

The wiced_waf_app_set_boot() returns WICED_SUCCESS. But after reboot, FR_APP or APP0 or the app in internal flash(those three apps are identical) starts in stead of the OTA app

Thanks

Hi,

As your platform is not an officially supported platform in WICED, I'll be a bit in the dark here. So initially OTA needs a bit of support in the platform, few questions

does the normal snip ota_fr works out of the box?

what is the size of the external flash and size of your applications stored in flash?

can you print the log messages while doing make?

finally, if you tried rebooting from another application like APP0 or FR does it work?

Regards,

Bassem

Hi Bassem,

Please see my inline answers below

1. does the normal snip ota_fr works out of the box?

We use snip.tftp as the OTA. Yes it works out of the box.


2. what is the size of the external flash and size of your applications stored in flash?

We use SFLASH_ID_MX25L1606E. the size of the external flash is 2Mbyte. size of your applications stored in flash is 515659 bytes.


3. finally, if you tried rebooting from another application like APP0 or FR does it work?

Yes. It can reboot from APP0 when I tried rebooting from APP0.


4. can you print the log messages while doing make?

My make target is "demo.hdradio_wifidirect_OTA_UDP_streaming-ISM43362_M3G_L44 download download_apps run"

//make file

#Set factory reset application to be this same application.

FR_APP    := $(OUTPUT_DIR)/binary/$(CLEANED_BUILD_STRING).stripped.elf

DCT_IMAGE := $(OUTPUT_DIR)/DCT.stripped.elf

OTA_APP   := silabs_image/snip_tftp_feng-ISM43362_M3G_L44.stripped.elf

APP0      := silabs_image/snip_scan-ISM43362_M3G_L44.stripped.elf

APP1      := silabs_image/dsp_image_4.0.10.bin //DSP image

Below is the log messages while doing make

Hi Bassem,

One more addition besides the 4 questions above, when I try to set the boot from the OTA app, it will boot from the myapp in  internal flash, not from FR_APP or APP0.

I can see a circular dependency in the log messages, usually you shouldn't get that. did you change any of make files (other than the application Makefile)

if possible can you send me a zip file that regenerates your problem, cause I can't seem to be able to regenerate it here?

Regards,

Hi Bassem,

I never change any of the makefiles other than my application Makefile. My emails above provide the details about the two issues below.

1. Can't boot from OTA app.

Each image of the FR_APP/DCT_IMAGE/OTA_APP/APP0/APP1 can be written to external flash using make target "demo.hdradio_wifidirect_OTA_UDP_streaming-ISM43362_M3G_L44 download download_apps run"

below is my make file

#Set factory reset application to be this same application.

FR_APP    := $(OUTPUT_DIR)/binary/$(CLEANED_BUILD_STRING).stripped.elf

DCT_IMAGE := $(OUTPUT_DIR)/DCT.stripped.elf

OTA_APP   := silabs_image/snip_tftp_feng-ISM43362_M3G_L44.stripped.elf

APP0      := silabs_image/snip_scan-ISM43362_M3G_L44.stripped.elf

APP1      := silabs_image/fmhd_radio_4.0.10.bin   //DSP image

My app include following code to set the boot from the OTA app. But after reboot my app(not app0 or app1) starts again instead of the OTA app.

void application_start( )

{

  /* Initialize Wiced system */

    wiced_init();

.....

  wiced_framework_set_boot( DCT_OTA_APP_INDEX, PLATFORM_DEFAULT_LOAD );

  WPRINT_APP_INFO(("Restarting...\r\n"));

  wiced_framework_reboot( );

.....

  }

Hi Bassem,

Updates for the second issue 2 "Can't write any image to external flash when adding APP2 in makefile". I fixed a bug in wiced_apps.mk and made a change below

#APP0_DOWNLOAD:  $(APP2_DOWNLOAD_DEPEDENCY)

APP2_DOWNLOAD:  $(APP2_DOWNLOAD_DEPEDENCY)

Now I issue make target "demo.hdradio_wifidirect_OTA_UDP_streaming-ISM43362_M3G_L44 download download_apps run". Any image of FR_APP/DCT_IMAGE/APP0/APP1/App2 can be written to  external flash. Then my main application  run and set the boot to APP1, the app1(my ota app) can run. Below is terminal output

Hi, I'm the OTA application.

Time for an upgrade. OTA upgrade starting ...

Setting IPv6 link-local address

IPv4 network ready IP: 192.168.10.1.

But there is no active "WICED Soft AP" interface from the wifi menu on my tablet. My tftp program on the tablet cannot connect to the WICED device. I suspect the problem may be caused by the DCT.  The app1 has different DCT image from my main application. After reboot, the APP1 start up and use the existing DCT(my main application) in internal flash. How can we fix this problem?

//main application make file

#Set factory reset application to be this same application.

FR_APP    := $(OUTPUT_DIR)/binary/$(CLEANED_BUILD_STRING).stripped.elf

DCT_IMAGE := $(OUTPUT_DIR)/DCT.stripped.elf

#OTA_APP   := silabs_image/snip_hello_feng-ISM43362_M3G_L44.stripped.elf

APP0      := silabs_image/snip_scan-ISM43362_M3G_L44.stripped.elf

APP1  := silabs_image/snip_tftp_feng-ISM43362_M3G_L44.stripped.elf  //our ota app

APP2      := silabs_image/fmhd_radio_4.0.10.bin //for our dsp image

Thanks

Hi Tiger,

Great progress!!. I noted the change you did in wiced_apps.mk and it sounds correct. As for your APP1. so just to confirm, if you run APP1 but itself right from start, downloading it to internal flash, does it work correctly?

We don't have a user API to replace the DCT. There is an internal function that replaces only parts of the DCT during factory reset. (have a look at: WICED/platform/MCU/wiced_dct_internal_common.c : wiced_dct_restore_factory_reset). However I don't actually recommend doing this. First replacing DCT is risky and if it corrupts the file locations there is no going back. Also I feel this would add more complexity to your application.

Try to think of more simple solutions. your DCT can include an application specific data at the end, try to write in it whatever each of your applications need.

Hi Bassem,

Current OTA mechanism seems assumes the default DCT settings never change.

However, a new version of firmware is likely to add new settings in DCT for

supporting new features. How to handle such case?

DCT usually carries current configurations (and user options), accumulated when running the application multiple times. updating the application, usually doesn't mean over writing all previous configurations or user options. A newer application version should mostly be backward compatible with DCT and may manually update a piece or two in the DCT (at the first run), this can be done using DCT read and write functions.

Over writing the full DCT is still possible by calling wiced_waf_app_load passing an index of a DCT file, but again I find this dangerous.

Hope this answers your question.

Hi Tiger,

try replacing WICED/platform/MCU/wiced_apps_lut.c with the attached file and see if this fixes your OTA app file problem.

Hi Bassem,

I replaced the WICED/platform/MCU/wiced_apps_lut.c with the attached file. Now OTA can be boot up from my main app, but got the same issue to my previous app1. when OTA run, there is no active "WICED Soft AP" interface from the wifi menu on my tablet. If I  run OTA but itself right from start, downloading it to internal flash, it works. I can see the "WICED Soft AP" .


Right now my main application doesn't have any application specific data in DCT. Our main app is a wifi direct app. The Wifi config in DCT is different to the OTA(softAP). It seems that the OTA  uses the DCT(in internal flash) of main app to cause the problem. Is there a workaround for the problem or a generic way to handle the upgrade of any app or OTA?

Thanks

Hi Tiger,

Please see the messages above where I explained that the DCT is a device configuration rather than an application configuration. IMHO, the correct way to solve this is to have two separate entries in DCT one for wifi direct and another one for SOFT_AP. If done, then both wifi direct app and OTA can read their stuff from DCT easily.

To do this you need to copy the WIFI direct entry in dct.c in to a different one, change the part where wifi_direct access DCT to access the new entry rather than the softAP entry.

PS: one of our engineers is working on something similar, if done before you finish your changes I'll try to post it for your as a patch.

Regards,

Bassem

Hi Bassem,

There is only one entry for  the soft_ap_settings in current struct platform_dct_wifi_config_t. Our main app also has a soft_ap_settings in the DCT like OTA app(based on snip.tftp example). Please send me the software patch once it is available.

Right now I added the wifi soft_ap_settings code(dct write ssid/passphrase) in OTA app and seems the OTA works. But this is a workaround for my current case. We really need a generic way to handle any setting change for upgrade of app0 and OTA.


In addition, is there any tool to view and edit the dct.elf file?

Thanks
