Updating your ARTIK Board

New to IoT? Once you have your ARTIK board unboxed and running, you're ready to dive into the first three Tutorials, which we suggest you do right away! Come back here once you're ready to start development on a project. Start by reading this excellent primer on package management systems.

Seasoned Developer or ready to delve deeper? If you are starting project development, now is a good time to make sure you have the latest firmware and software available.

  1. Update module firmware. You'll first want to install the latest ARTIK image.

  2. Network connection. The next step will be to establish network connectivity, typically over Wi-Fi®. You'll need this for using the ARTIK IDE or Arduino IDE.

  3. Upgrade installed packages. Now you're ready for the latest software updates. Typing
    dnf update
    into your terminal screen will get you going.

  4. Install a development environment on your PC. If you loaded the ARTIK IDE earlier, you're nearly done – go to the Update SDK article to check for updates. If not, go to the Software Tools article to get an overview of what's available.

  5. Verify API access. ARTIK API support is included automatically when you install the ARTIK IDE. You just need to check to make sure repository access is set up on your ARTIK board.

  6. Add additional packages. You'll eventually want to add other software using the dnf package installer. We've included instructions throughout the articles about what packages you'd need for a specific feature (like adding Node-RED as we describe in the Tutorials).
