Nordic DFU Firmware Upgrade with BLE

Hey there,

I successfully connected to my Nordic device via the @ionic-native/ble library. Now I am trying to upgrade the firmware. I saw that this library uses this repo: It says that there is a fork which provides the ble.upgradeFirmware method which I would like to implement but I dont know how to add this to the native ble library.

The fork is here:

Can anybody help me please?

you should ti use a wrapper of the fork that support UpgradeFirmware function, for now the wrapper npm i @ionic-native/ble don’t support this function


Did you find a solution to the problem? I have the same problem as you. Thank you.

You can use my Plugin: Dfu Update - Ionic Documentation -
It has an official Ionic Wrapper

First I have to continue making the connection to the BLE, right? And I suppose that after that function will receive the information by Nordic.

Thanks a lot.

Hi there!
Anyone knows where do I find the “fileUrl” ???

You mean in my Plugin? You need to downlad the Firmware, store in on the device and use the file url from where you saved it

Sorry but I didn’t understand, could you please be more specific ? Thank you for the fast reply! :slight_smile:

Where does your Application get the new Firmware from? Your Backend i guess?
