Updating WIFI shield


I tried updating the WIFI shield firmware using the fw_update script but an error showed up (OSError: Could not find the file).

I copied the winc_19_6_1.bin file to a uSD card, then resetted the the camera but would always get the same result.


Hi, please make sure the file is written, try safe remove/eject the drive before resetting the cam.

I tried safe ejecting the drive then resetting the cam but the same error shows up.

is there any other way to update the WIFI shield ?

You need to copy the file again, safe eject and then reset. There’s another way to update using the debugging header on the wifi shield a power supply and Arduino (google WINC1500 firmware update) it’s much more harder to update the firmware this way.
