JRUPDATE User Commands
jrupdate - JNIOR Update Utility
jrupdate [OPTIONS] UPDFILE
jrupdate [OPTIONS] ZIPFILE
jrupdate [OPTIONS] URL
The JNIOR firmware can be updated using the JRUPDATE command. This is
used to update the operating system (JANOS). It is highly recommended
that the latest version of JANOS be used. In many cases it is a
prerequisite for continuing technical support.
Prepare to update from the file UPDFILE. Typically a UPD file is
obtained from INTEG and loaded into the /temp folder. This option
readies the firmware for update upon reboot. The JanosClasses runtime
is immediately updated.
When used in combination with the -U option this causes the system
to proceed with the reboot after preparing the UPDFILE.
Skips the update confirmation and proceeds with the update.
Cancels a prepared update. The firmware will not be updated upon
reboot. Note that the JanosClasses runtime has been updated in the
preparation and this may or may not cause issues pending the
eventual firmware update.
At the completion of a firmware update the prior version of the
operating system remains stored. This option will revert the
firmware to the original upon reboot. Note that the JanosClasses
runtime is unaffected and may or may not cause issues with the
older firmware. The -R option can be repeated to toggle between
JANOS versions. There generally has been little or no need for
this reversion option.
Run installer. If a ZIPFILE is specified that contains a setup.bat
batch file, it is executed to complete the steps involved in the
Downloads a files from the supplied URL into the /temp folder
before proceeding with other options. This may load a UPD file or
other installation file.
Typically updates are performed using the Support Tool and a supplied
Update Project. Manually the firmware is updated by copying the UPD
file to the /temp folder and executing the following command.
jrupdate -fup /temp/longfilename.upd
The TAB feature of the command line is useful in constructing this
command in that you need not type the lengthy UPD file name.
Product firmware update procedures typically warn against removing power
during the procedure. JANOS performs a fault tolerant firmware exchange
procedure that is unaffected by the loss of power. This also completes
fairly quickly and won't keep you on the edge of your seat waiting.
