The SamKnows SK-WB8 has a new successor: the SamKnows SK-WB8+

Joined the SamKnows broadband data collection thing here in Australia and recieved my Whitebox. Opening the box, I noticed that it is NOT the SK-WB8 which we already have a firmware for. This new Whitebox has four external antennas.

SamKnows claims that the internals are EXACTLY the same as the WB8 but with the new external antennas.

Gonna try and flash the existing firmware once I get my USB UART cable but I don't know if we need hardware support for the external antennas if nothing has indeed changed.

I've tried accessing it, using serial ttl, but it won't accept any keyboard commands. First time doing this, so don't know if I'm doing something wrong or not.

How did you go?

Did you run any specific command?
