Hot on the heels of our call for beta testers for the resinOS 1.x to 2.x host OS updates, we are preparing to roll out resinOS 2.x to 2.x updates for resin.io-managed devices as well.
If you are interested in being a beta tester for this, let us know leaving a note here, and we’ll help you update your devices! The requirements are:
- a production version of a resinOS 2.x device (no dev, beta, or rc versions)
- any type of hardware!
Updates between 2.x versions should be the easiest type of update so far, because it was designed for updates in the first place. For example don’t have to worry about modifications to the host OS, since there are none due to read-only file system. The network settings are kept much better through the NetworkManager configurations, etc…
When there’s sufficient milage in this updater, we’ll have a self-service version as well, when you’ll be able to update your devices on your own too! Also we are working on future improvements as well to make this smoother (quicker and more flexible updates), will keep you posted!
