July 8, 2021 - Bobcat released its latest OTA update at 8 am PDT to continue its miner optimization.
The following optimization occurred in this update:
Miner firmware updated to 18.104.22.168.
Pushed Helium firmware to 2021.07.07.1
The new 2021.07.07.1 Helium hotspot firmware contains a new blessed snapshot, as well as some minor maintenance updates. Specifically, this will fix the issue with Hotspots being stuck on block 910,391 following Validator activation.
Users can check their Helium firmware version by running a diagnostic report through the Helium app. The miner firmware update, however, is not visible on your app, but it is being pushed to all Bobcat miners.
Firmware update is scheduled to push in batches. All Bobcat fleet should receive the latest update within hours.
Hotspots connected to Ethernet/Wifi will receive these updates automatically. No manual intervention is needed.
