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.
@Gijs Yes, no luck for us using 1.20.2.r4 neither. Still haven't been able to connect in US. Will create another post as you suggest and continue to solve it there.

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 188.8.131.52-50523. 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.
