Bobcat Miner Firmware bumped to 188.8.131.52

If your firewall settings have all of China blocked via restriction in both incoming and outgoing directions, your hotspot will not be able to connect to our device management platform and will not be able to receive the OTA updates.
If your hotspot OTA version is older than 184.108.40.206, please fill out the form here. The team will check this routinely and update any hotspots that are left behind on a daily basis.
