CONFIG_IMG_ERASE_PROGRESSIVELY

Erase flash progressively when receiving new firmware

Type: bool

Help

If enabled, flash is erased as necessary when receiving new firmware, instead of erasing the whole image slot at once. This is necessary on some hardware that has long erase times, to prevent long wait times at the beginning of the DFU process.

Direct dependencies

MCUBOOT_IMG_MANAGER && IMG_MANAGER

(Includes any dependencies from ifs and menus.)
