Last updated December 14th, 2023

To better organize and track firmware versions, Knox E-FOTA On-Premises includes a versions list that allows you to record firmware test results and block certain versions.

To view the versions list:

  1. Sign in to the Knox E-FOTA On-Premises console.
  2. Click your account icon.
  3. In the menu that’s shown, click Settings.
  4. The navigation pane refreshes with a new set of entries. Click Versions.

The version list is then displayed with the following information:

Field Description

OPEN DATE The date the firmware version was publicly released.
OS VERSION The Android version that corresponds to the firmware version.
SECURITY PATCH The date the security patch was publicly released.
FIRMWARE VERSION The full name of the firmware version. Click the name to view the firmware details, which includes a description and specific device information.

Above the list, you can filter by device Model / Sales Code or search by firmware version ID to quickly identify the firmware versions you need.
