Raspberry Pi 4 - Latest Firmware

Post by Cobra_Phil » Fri Nov 08, 2019 10:48 am

Does the latest version of WTware (5.8.76) incorporate the latest Raspberry Pi 4 firmware as indicated in the link below? Or is there a way to install it on the latest version of WTware. It appears it will help with elevated temperatures.

WTware will not rewrite your EEPROM.

As far as I understand, the simplest method to update/recover Pi4 EEPROM is to boot once from recovery SD. Recovery SD Image is oficially available here:

Recovery SD image link name now with keywords vl805 and 000137ab : "https:// static.raspberrypi.org/files/rpi-boot-eeprom-recovery-2019-09-10-vl805-000137ab.zip".

Thanks. I confirmed that this does work and it lowered my temps by 8-10 degrees C. No other apparent issues. WTWare runs great.
