Here is the Netduino Mini firmware. This is a recommended update for existing users. IMPORTANT NOTE: select the appropriate firmware zip file (RS232 or TTL) based on the deployment port you are currently using (RS232 = pins 1 and 2; 3.3V TTL UART = pins 11 and 12). Version: 4.1.0 Update 6 (version 4.1.0.6) With this firmware, you will have the following resources available for your code: 152KB Flash 70KB RAM This firmware includes the following updates: 1. RS232 and TTL UART deployment now selectable via software tool 2. Garbage collection 'status messages' updated 3. Bugfixes: SerialPort.DataReceived event should now fire properly 4. Bugfixes: SerialPort.Read() timeout now implemented properly 5. Bugfixes: Misc. SPI bugfixes To find the current version of your Netduino Mini firmware: 1. Go to the Start Menu > Programs > Microsoft .NET Micro Framework 4.1 > Tools 2. Run MFDeploy.exe. Be careful to run MFDeploy.exe and not MFDeploy.exe.config (as file extensions are hidden by default) 3. Plug your Netduino Mini into your PC using an RS232 or TTL UART cable. 4. In the Device section at top, select Serial. Select the serial port assigned to your RS232 or TTL UART cable. 5. Select the Target menu, Device Capabilities option. 6. In the output box, find the "SolutionReleaseInfo.solutionVersion" value. This is your firmware version. Users of firmware version 4.1.0.5 or earlier may update to this new firmware using the MFDeploy tool: 1. Download and unzip the attached file to a directory on your computer. 2. Go to the Start Menu > Programs > Microsoft .NET Micro Framework 4.1 > Tools 3. Run MFDeploy.exe. Be careful to run MFDeploy.exe and not MFDeploy.exe.config (as file extensions are hidden by default) 3. Plug your Netduino Mini into your PC using an RS232 or TTL UART cable. 4. In the Device section at top, select Serial. Select the serial port assigned to your RS232 or TTL UART cable. 6. Click "Browse..." and select the unzipped files from step #1 (ER_CONFIG and ER_FLASH). 7. Press "Deploy". It will take a few minutes to update your Netduino.

Some users may erase their Netduino Minis completely to use them as low-cost ARM development boards or to otherwise tinker. In this case, it will necessary to redeploy the TinyBooter bootloader before redeploying the Netduino Mini firmware. Reflashing a Netduino Mini after a full erase requires an RS232 connection to your Netduino Mini. The TinyBooter booloader (v4.1.0.6) is attached to this post for your convenience.
