This question is about how to upload the “firmware.bin” file into the 3G electron using a USB port rather than 3G network.
I read somewhere in the Internet that in order to use USB to load the “firmware.bin”, I will need NodeJS. So I have installed NodeJS in my computer.
I had also installed the USB driver for Particle devices via the link below.
And the device manager is now assigning the 3G Electron USB a comm port.
I started the NodeJS as an Administrator (right-click on the link shown below and “Run As Administrator”).
Then I run this command on the NodeJS command prompt which installed quite a few things. See screenshot below.
npm install –g particle-cli
After that, I type command below to login into Particle (see command below) and after I enter my password, it is hung. Nothing comes back for 2 hours.
Not too sure what went wrong here. Btw, is this the correct steps to uploading the firmware using USB? I know it is possible using the 3G network but I am just trying to save on my data plan.
