How does Core Update work?

#1

Hi,
i’m sorry to ask this newbie question, but there is almost no documentation available from this kickstarter project and it seems that within the community it was never discussed in details.

I would like to know how an update works of the dongle? Do i have to extract the SD card and reflash with latest image (i do not think so/hope so)…or is there a menu item in the GUI that says UPDATE?
If this is the case…where does the dongle take the data? i have a very limited data plan @simcard
OR is there a way to connect with the WLAN module of the Zero into my home’s network?

Thanks for your informations…

Hi @njordan.

No this has been discussed in the forum in quite a few tickets.
What you are apparently missing is the info available in every release thread/ticket, if we for example take the latest release that can be found here:

What you likely did not read was this:
Note : Auto updates are currently disabled, but can be enabled in the advanced settings.

Now if/when you log in to my.autopi.io You should have gotten this text and also read it:

The settings to trigger the update for your device is found here:

Mikael
