Hi Greg,

Thank you and your Engineering team.  We have tested the OTA on few Chips in field and it worked. 

Embedded Devices are limited by memory and this device CC3200 has very tiny memory. It will be good to know the maximum size of link that Dropbox might implement in the future. We are thinking of allocating 1200 bytes.

Thank you Greg!

We are allocating 768 bytes for the temp link (up from 512).

For the other CC3200 users out there: it seems that increasing the size of OtaFileMetadata_t.cdn_url (on ota_api.h) is not enough! You can still get a memory leak on req_uri (in CdnClient_ConnectByUrl), as part of the temp link will be copied to this buffer which originally has 400 bytes!

We were able to find this leak just because, by chance, it was affecting a data structure holding proxy data, which breaks all communication!

If anyone knows of any other additional changes that have to be made in order to accommodate the larger Dropbox temp link please share here! Let's help each other out!

Thanks!
