I am trying to figure out how to use the Azure Device Update preview to update our embedded devices.
Those devices run c++ code and don't have a operating system.
i was looking at the different tutorials and they all seem to be using Linux for a device Update agent.

Is it possible to use device update on embedded devices?
I looked at this list, but it doesn't seem to have embedded devices in it. https://learn.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/iot-hub-device-update/device-update-agent-provisioning#support-for-device-update

    Hi @Oetze van den Broek thanks for the question!

    We do not currently have a bare metal offering for ADU but it is in the works. I can't provide any details yet but we have it highly prioritized and working on it now.

    Hello @Oetze van den Broek ,

    according to the documentation, devices running RTOS application are supported too:

    Device Update supports a broad range of IoT operating systems—including Linux and Azure RTOS (real-time operating system)—and is extensible via open source.

    Samples can be found here. An RTOS update tutorial is found here.

    Check out this GitHub repo if you are new to RTOS.
