Cradlepoint Firmware 5.3 - Redesign and Policy Changes

As EVDOinfo previously reported, Cradlepoint has gone through a few major overhauls lately. First, a new company logo and color scheme was revealed, for a more modern look. Second, new firmware policy changes were announced. While a simple logo redesign was welcome, the firmware policy was a surprise for everybody.

In summary, all customers will have access to FW 5.2.x, but access to FW 5.3, (Dec 2, 2014 release) and beyond, will require Enterprise Cloud Manager or CradleCare Support. This means when new firmware is released for Cradlepoint hardware, you must have ECM or CradleCare to access it. New firmware brings a variety of new features and support, with 5.3 bringing some sweeping changes to the way the newer 'LPE' modems work. With firmware 5.3 LPE modems that were previously locked to a specific carrier, Verizon or AT&T etc, can now be reflashed to work on other networks! Those who purchased these models will be happy to have the flexibility to change carriers thanks to the embedded Gobi radio, but less welcoming is the mandatory pay wall to access the download.

Along with the new 5.3 firmware, Cradlepoint has also done a redesign to the routers user interface. Gone are the reds and whites of the previous routers and company logo, and in are the darker blues and new logo. Below is an MBR1400 on 5.3.


Below is an IBR600 running 5.2.4 by comparison.
