I haven't put any delay before rebooting the device. Do I need to add delay??

Actual application is server dependent, we get the time from server fro image update, then start rtos timer like this:

imageDownloadTimerHandle = xTimerCreate("imageDownloadTimer",pdMS_TO_TICKS(difference_in_time*1000),pdFALSE,(void*)1, vTimerCallbackApplyTimeExpired);
if(imageDownloadTimerHandle == NULL){
printf("Upload Timer Not Created\n");
}
else{
printf("Upload timer Started\n");
xTimerStart(imageDownloadTimerHandle, 0);
}

This is a callback function in which ota update function is called which I had already send you :
void vTimerCallbackApplyTimeExpired(xTimerHandle pxTimer1)
{
printf("Image Download Timer Expired\n");
ota_ImageUpdate();
printf("Image update finished\n");
}
Hi, Would you please check from where ESP32 restart API is called after completing firmware update? has it been managed with timer or just managed with normal API call?

Because, We are not using any OTA Image related APIs, We are using standard APIs to update image and we resolved this issue by putting some delay before ESP32 Restart or creating timer before ESP32 restart.

Hi,

Calling ESP32 restart api just after the completion of firmware update. No delay has been added. Should I put delay before restart???

What standard API's are you using for the same.

Thanks
Ritu.

Hi,

I suggest to create one 5 seconds of time before calling restart system and call restart system from that time at the end of expiration of timer.

or second suggestion is to put some delay before calling system restart call.

Hi,

We are using below APIs to do firmware update at our end. Please find below basic flow for same.

esp_partition_t partition;
memset(&partition, 0, sizeof(esp_partition_t));

const esp_partition_t *partition1 = esp_ota_get_boot_partition();
if (partition1 == NULL) {
return FIRMWARE_UPDATE_FAIL;
}

if (partition1->subtype == ESP_PARTITION_SUBTYPE_APP_OTA_0) {
partition.type = ESP_PARTITION_TYPE_APP;
partition.subtype = ESP_PARTITION_SUBTYPE_APP_FACTORY;
partition.address = OTA_PARTITION_0_ADDR;
partition.size = OTA_PARTITION_SIZE;
strcpy(partition.label, "FACTORY_APP");
partition.encrypted = FAIL;
dest = OTA_PARTITION_0_ADDR;
} else if (partition1->subtype == ESP_PARTITION_SUBTYPE_APP_FACTORY) {
partition.type = ESP_PARTITION_TYPE_APP;
partition.subtype = ESP_PARTITION_SUBTYPE_APP_OTA_0;
partition.address = OTA_PARTITION_1_ADDR;
partition.size = OTA_PARTITION_SIZE;
strcpy(partition.label, "OTA_0_APP");
partition.encrypted = FAIL;
dest = OTA_PARTITION_1_ADDR;
}

spi_flash_erase_range
spi_flash_write
esp_ota_set_boot_partition
Restart ESP32 with some timer mechanism of 5 seconds or 10 seconds

What's the point of the delay before reboot? I've been doing OTA without a delay before reboot and not sure if there is a potential problem.

This is just for a workaround to make sure that system will be restarted within that much of duration. So, We can put one debug statement before delay timer and restart API call so that we can have idea like what is going on at that time.

Hi,

I just want to know that are you still facing issue after adding delay or timer before going to restart system from your end?

If still same issue then need to check OTA code into details to get exact reason for same.

Yes, even after adding delay I am getting this error.

I would have surely checked my code if this would have been failing every time. 8/10 times it is failing.

Maybe it's hanging in your NVS calls at the end.
