On April 30th, 2024, Elo will release a new OS update for its Android 12 devices. This update includes feature enhancements and bug fixes that will improve the performance and usability of these devices. This update will be available for download on the EloView cloud portal as a dropdown OTA and will become the default OTA download on EloView and OEMConfig as of May 7th. Please reach out to your Elo support contact for any additional questions or to request access to a direct download of this update.

New features and enhancements:

  • Enhanced battery performance of M50 and M60 by removing the screensaver from the sleep mode
  • Resolved an issue where USB ports on devices are shutting down causing peripherals to be disconnected
  • Resolved an issue where the Static IP on LAN wasn’t persistent after Enterprise Reset
  • Added API support for the following:
    • To enable and disable Backlight for Performance device
    • To copy and paste texts from all context menus
    • To set preferred virtual keyboard

We highly recommend updating the Peripheral SDK JAR file to AAR for future Android upgrades. Failure to update will cause applications that leverage that library to crash on launch. As always, your devices will never prompt for an update or auto-update. Once the update is available, devices can be updated from the EloView Portal or at the device-level from the EloView Control Panel.
