An important firmware update for the Witty Timer. Please read and apply the patch.
We’ve recently found out a critical vulnerability of an internal component of Witty chronometer (NAND-Flash memory) that may cause stop of device operation (warning message “CRC Error”) or loss of stored data. To solve this low level hardware problem, it is necessary not only to upgrade the firmware but also to upgrade part of the operating system and of the “boot loader”. To do this it is necessary to follow some more steps than for a normal firmware update.
The procedure is fully explained at the following link:
We recommend you to update your chronometer(s).
We apologize for the inconvenience but we are glad to have avoided any physical recall of the devices.
For any questions or problems, feel free to contact us.
