Hi everyone!
Not sure if this is the right place to post this, please let me know if I should move it.
I’m working on my thesis project. I have an app running over FreeRTOS v9.0.0 and I need to implement a mechanism to update the FW remotely. My HW includes a 3G Modem with which I exchange messages with a remote server. The first thing that I founded was EZBL Library, I’ve received great support about how to use it but know I’m blocked in the implementation.
Surfing the web I found Amazon FreeRTOS and their libraries. I’m particularly interested in Over-the-Air Updates capabilities that one of the libraries offer.
**I’m writing this post to understand what it would take me to me update my current application from freeRTOS v9.0.0 to Amazon freeRTOS v10.1.0 and add the library with this capability. ** That is for evaluating if I should continue working with EZBL and made my own solution for Over-the-Air Updates, or I should take the Amazon choice. In the documentation of Amazon freeRTOS does not mention anywhere that PIC24FJ1024GB610 over Explorer16/32 is supported for using the libraries, they only mention that they support Microchip Curiosity PIC32MZEF bundle for Microchip devices.
Thanks for reading.

There are many ways to perform an OTA - the first question would be,
does your project include a TLS implementation? That would be needed
for HTTPS, FTPS, or to connect to the Amazon FreeRTOS OTA streaming service.
