Intel AeroFC Firmware version = unknown

Jump to solution

I am getting ready to install Ubuntu 16.04 on the Intel Aero RTF. The instructions first mention to update the BIOS, FPGA and FC. I followed all the instructions here

https://github.com/intel-aero/meta-intel-aero/wiki/02-Initial-Setup

 

I downloaded the latest .iso and flashed the drone with it.

Then updated the BIOS and the FPGA. Then updated the FC.

 

Then when I ran aero-get-version.py I see this

root@intel-aero:~# aero-get-version.py

BIOS_VERSION = Aero-01.00.16

OS_VERSION = Poky Aero (Intel Aero Linux Distro) 1.6.2 (pyro)"

AIRMAP_VERSION = 1.8

FPGA_VERSION = 0xc0

AeroFC firmware version = unknown

 

Before proceeding to install Ubuntu on the drone I wanted to make sure to see if there is something I missed during the update to BIOS, FPGA and FC.

 

The kernel looks updated

root@intel-aero:~# uname -r

4.4.113-yocto-standard

 

and

 

sudo aerofc-get-version.py

AeroFC firmware version = unknown

 

Should I proceed ?

I was able to get it to work. Now

root@intel-aero:/etc/aerofc/px4# aero-get-version.py

BIOS_VERSION = Aero-01.00.16

OS_VERSION = Poky Aero (Intel Aero Linux Distro) 1.6.2 (pyro)"

AIRMAP_VERSION = 1.8

FPGA_VERSION = 0xc2

AeroFC firmware version = 1.6.5

For some reason I think flashing using Etcher did not work. I then used 'dd' to flash the USB stick and re-did the steps. That seemed to work. Not sure if this is bug in Etcher or what.
