Customize Cellular Firmware

The ION device and the modem store multiple carrier-specific firmware files. The firmware specific to AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon along with Generic (PTCRB and/or GCF certified) are pre-loaded on the modem and the ION device storage. The appropriate firmware is loaded on the modem based on the inserted SIM.
The
Firmware
page displays the current firmwares available on the modem and the current recommended firmware and version. Upgrade the firmware when the recommended version is different from the current version for your specific carrier. The ION device downloads the new firmware from controller inventory and then upgrades the carrier firmware on the modem.
After you customize the firmware, the pre-loaded carrier firmwares on the modem and the ION device is removed or updated based on the customization.
