Meaning of 'upgrade id' when creating an DFU upgrade image?

Postby jorsc » Tue Mar 26, 2019 5:46 pm

According to: https://www.xmos.com/developer/publishe ... on=&page=1
One should specify an --upgrade <id> when creating a new DFU image for upgrade. The upgrade id should be a unique number.

However I've used the 'xmosdfu' util (compiled for Linux) and made several successful upgrades using the same id.

I have not used the 'dfucons', maybe this tool uses it?

In any case I just wonder if and in that case how this id is used in the upgrade process.

Hi. When you perform this upgrade or any use of the xflash tool, pass the parameter of --verbose to see additional juicy information that may help the procedure.

Thanks, I know the --verbose option but it does not explain how this parameter is used.
