OS Updating

LED Description LED Cycle LED Blink Pattern
orangeon  In OS update mode & receiving data. Constant on orangeonO 
orange_0.5s_on_0.5s_off  In OS update mode, but not receiving data. 

Note: The shade doesn't always receive data while OS uploading, so seeing this during the upload doesn't imply that there is an error.  If this blink code continues after the OS upload finishes, however, then the shade did not properly update.  To fix this, verify that RF range between the nearest repeater & the shade is acceptable, and try again. 

1s orangeonO   off  
1/2s on, 1/2s off.
