LTE modem firmware release for Cat-M1 5.2-48829
Dear Pycom community!
We're happy to announce the release of a new firmware for the LTE modem for CAT-M1. It can be used for existing FiPy, GPy and G01 modules.
This new firmware release is much more stable than previous CAT-M1 releases.

Could you first try to use the latest firmware (1.20.2.r4) and let us know. Also I recommend to create a separate thread for your issue instead of adding onto a CAT-M1 modem firmware thread :), just to keep things separate
Is there a comparable update for the NB-IoT firmware?
We are finding our current FiPy/1.20.0.rc13/LR6/41019 firmware impossible to connect on NB-IoT in the US. Anyone know of a working combination?
@kjm Yes, you're right. Thanks for flagging! We'll update it.
otherwise 1.dup is not used anywhere in the 2 step process?
@kjm Yes that beta firmware does not include the sqnsupgrade. You can take it from here https://github.com/pycom/pycom-libraries/tree/master/lib/sqnsupgrade Or you used (temporarily) another firmware such as 1.20.2.r4 to perform the upgrade
We'd like to try this on a 1.20.3.b0 fiPY but when we try
>>> import sqnsupgrade; sqnsupgrade.info() Traceback (most recent call last): File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module> ImportError: no module named 'sqnsupgrade'
there is not an obvious way to do it. Is there another way to upgrade modem firmware? If not is there a firmware version for the fiPY that has sqnsupgrade in it?
Also the modem firmware update guide mentions "Our newest products ship with the modem firmware version CAT-M1 22.214.171.124-50523. At the moment it is not possible to update the modem to that version." Do you have a timeline for when this might be possible since our suppliers are still shipping FiPYs with 43818 modem firmware.
