How can I update the firmware on my Sequoia and/or verify the version?

The firmware update process for Sequoia can be performed in two ways, noted in the Parrot Sequoia user manual (click here for release notes):


Via USB

To update Sequoia via USB you must use a micro USB OTG cable male
plug with a USB female socket.

1. Connect your USB drive to a computer and make sure that it contains
no files in .plf format.
2. Go to the Sequoia update page.
3. Download the update file available in .plf format.
4. Copy the file to the root directory on your USB key without putting it
in a folder or renaming it.
5. Connect your micro USB OTG cable to the USB host port on the
multispectral sensor.
6. Connect the USB key containing the update file to the other end of
the cable.
7. Turn on Sequoia.
>>The update runs automatically. During the update the multispectral
sensor light flashes orange (diagram I). Once the update is complete
the light turns green.

Via an SD Card

Before you begin, make sure that Sequoia is connected to
the Sunshine Sensor.


1. Connect your SD card to a computer and make sure that it doesn't already contain files in .plf format.
2. Go to the Sequoia update page.
3. Download the update file available in .plf format.
4. Copy the file to the root directory on your SD Card without putting it
in a folder or renaming it.
5. Insert the SD card in the Sunshine Sensor.
6. Turn on Sequoia.
>>The update runs automatically. During the update, Sequoia's light flashes orange. Once the update is complete the light turns green.

 

Once this process is complete, connect to the Sequoia web interface. On the bottom left of the screen, the version number will be displayed. An example image is featured below.
