The people who follow @me on twitter know that about a month ago I received an Azure sphere. Due to certification exams and other issues, I have not been able to play with this board before.
This post is part of a series in which I will show how to set up and use your Azure Sphere. Today I will show you how to update the Azure Sphere OS.
- Visual Studio 2017 Enterprise, Professional, or Community
- The Azure Sphere SDK Preview for Visual Studio.
Once installed the software prerequisites you must connect the board to a USB port on your computer. On the basis of my experience, use the ports of your computer, do not use the ports of a docking station or USB hub.
To start the Azure Sphere OS update process, Open an Azure Sphere Developer command prompt. It appears in the Start menu under Azure Sphere folder.
To see all available operations, you should use the command azsphere with the following syntax:
To manage the device you must use the following command to see the available operations.
azsphere device -?
Using the recover operator allows us to install the latest version of the OS for our Azure Sphere board.
azsphere device recover
and your system now has the latest version of Azure Sphere OS.
