Fwupdate target side question

I’m talking about the fwupdate that resides in /legato/systems/current/bin/fwupdate on the yocto target (e.g. WPxxxx).

The command “fwupdate download FILE” appears to install a file that’s already been copied to the yocto target filesytem. e.g. as described below:

  1. Copy mcu-rmfw-boot-yocto-legato_wp85.cwe to FX30 filesystem using scp.
  2. Open a ssh session
  3. Execute fwupdate download mcu-rmfw-boot-yocto-legato_wp85.cwe

That is, it’s not a actually a download as we commonly use the term. Just want to be sure I got this right.


Hi piinst,
The Legato command "fwupdate download " will install the image onto your device.

You’re correct, the term “download” is only performing a local install onto your device and is not pulling anything from the network.
