RE: devboard_82 flash utility



Hi Phil,

What version of the sdk are you using? I have tested the "put fimage
flash_all" on Axis devboard 82 relase 1.92 and it works as it should.

BTW, you can use flash instead of flash_all if you don't want overwrite
the rescue partition "put fimage flash".

Best Regards,
Jagoub
