Arduino SMDs from Adafruit have the latest bootloader – do not have “flash amnesia”
All Arduino SMDs from Adafruit have the latest bootloader and do not have the “flash amnesia” issue reported in various forums including our forums. Approximately 10 units went out with a previous bootloader, we have contacted the customers and replacements are on the way. With the help of our customers and the Arduino team we were able to reproduce the issue, find a solution and immediately begin updating the units before shipment, all within 24 hours over a holiday weekend. We will update this post once the Arduino team has an official announcement.
The latest version of the bootloader for Arduino SMD is version 3, each unit from Adafruit is updated and has a new sticker on the box indicated it’s version 3
