My OBi202, though out of warranty, is set to automatically update. I've been rebooting it every day to see if 5898 would be updated but nothing yet. It's not a big deal...everything works even with 5897.
"set to automatically update"....
There was a widely-held belief, myself included, that making various settings changes to the values on the "System management-->Auto provisioning" tab would either disable or allow firmware updates. In particular, at one time, the portal inserted a Boolean string that tested to see if the existing firmware build was older than some given build, and would then, in theory, upgrade it. OBiTALK is no longer inserting that string,and, in fact, it can actually cause the device to downgrade its firmware, if it is set to a lower value than one that you manually install.
The current behavior, as far as I can tell, is that, as long as you have your device(s) attached to the OBiTALK portal, they'll receive firmware updates, if you have that page set to the current defaults. If you have a value in the "Firmware URL" field, delete it, and set the entire page to "OBiTALK defaults". (I'd post a screenshot, but the forum software isn't allowing it).
AFAIK, this configuration page is only intended for managed service provider use. In theory, one could use it to remotely upgrade a unit to a specific, known firmware stored at a specific location, but that's not what it's used for by default.
