Here is a log for the 4.1 flash update:

While it appears to have successfully updated, Is there a problem with not finding a bootloader?

Hi @bmartel,

That looks to be fine. It’s not saying it can’t find a bootloader, it’s saying it can’t tell you which chip is in use because the bootloader is too old and doesn’t provide that information (which is the case for Pixhawk 1 boards) :slight_smile:

On an unrelated note, the original Companion software is no longer being developed. You may wish to transition to BlueOS :slight_smile:

Thanks for clarifying Eliot!
