    Hi
    Probably a stupid question, how is the FPGA updated, is it in xxx.tar.bz2 file, and if so does it get done when we use the "flashit" application.
    Or is there and alternative method.

     
    • You may as well ftp new version of /etc/x333.bit and then reboot the camera.

      The command itself is just
      cat /etc/x333.bit >/dev/fpgaconfjtag

      But it does not work if some imnage is already loaded into FPGA.

      The script that loads image from /etc/x333.bit is here
