    @MINIX - Ken
    You say under bullet (3) in ur announcement that the OTA update app should be used. Does that mean i cannot (anymore) use the button that is in the Settings app?

    No! You only need to be on the version before for FOTA updates.

    The zip file is over 500MB where as the FOTA update from 006a to 007 is only around 20MB.
