Update the AVS Device SDK

If you've already installed a version of the SDK, you can update it when a new version comes out. You should perform a clean build of the SDK each time you must install a later version, because each update might change the hierarchy of files within the SDK repository.

Update instructions

  1. Stash a copy of the configuration file that was used to authorize the sample app with Alexa. For example, For Raspberry Pi it's named config.json.
  2. Do a git pull from within your avs-device-sdk source directory.
  3. Replace the configuration file with the copy that you stashed in step 1. This way your device doesn't have to go through the authorization process again.
  4. Rebuild the SDK.
