Firmware Version


#1

I bought a Propboard two years ago. I fried some piece of the board; not sure which. (See this thread.) Now I need to buy another one. But now I see there’s a “Programmed with” option with either “Just bootloader” or “PBSaber firmware”. I don’t recall seeing this option in the past. Any idea which version I ordered before? I’m guessing “Just bootloader”, but I want to be sure.

Hi @Joecool,

Both options include the bootloader (the piece of program that makes downloading from the Arduino IDE possible).

“Programmed with PBSaber” means that we also pre-program the PBSaber program for customers that want to user the board without the need of downloading the PBSaber program with the Arduino IDE.

So if you are programming with the Arduino IDE both options are OK.
