Updating the bootloader

by Fjornir on Thu Feb 24, 2011 11:03 pm

So I just built out my Christmas present -- a ybox2 kit from adafruit that came with the 1.0 bootloader installed. Here's the story: I don't have wired ethernet to where I want this thing installed so for the moment I'm trying to make do with running wire from my laptop and then either ICS or Bridged Connections to get the ybox2 its DHCP address. Alas, bridged connections do not appear to be getting DHCP requests and/or DHCP responses to/from my wireless. ICS is working to get the ybox2 online but unfortunately ICS is assigning it a new IP address every boot - unacceptable!

Looking around on the tubes the 1.1 bootloader appears to have static IP support which would make me a happy camper.

How do I go about doing the bootloader upgrade? Do I need to fab a programming cable or can that be done over the ethernets?

Thanks for your help!
