OTA - Over The Air Update

This is a large topic with lots of variables.

On the Gateworks SBCs, or single board computers, there are several pieces to be aware of:

  • GSC Firmware
  • Bootloader
  • RootFS (OpenWrt, Ubuntu, etc)

Read below for more details.

GSC Firwmare

The GSC, or Gateworks system controller has it's own firmware. This can be updated from the Linux command line, and thus scripted for OTA udpates. Read more here: gsc

Bootloader

This can typically be updated from the Linux command line. Read more here: ventana/bootloader

RootFS

Ubuntu

Ubuntu typically uses the standard apt-get package management system for updates.

OpenWrt

See OpenWrt/sysupgrade

Buildroot
