Trying to make my first step the particle cloud. Not so lucky sadly.
I’ve bought a Photon that I would like to use for a wearable project. Started with the assumption that the app would work. Sadly it didn’t discover the Photon. I am using a Samsung Galaxy S7, and discovered that someone else had the same issue too, so I decided to take a different route. For a previous project I had Node.js installed but that wasn’t working as expected, some trouble shooting with updates, permissions, etc. Then it was finally able to install Particle-cli. I started the Particle setup procedure. Everything went fine until it started searching for available networks. It didn’t find any so I aborted the procedure and started the manual way. Entered the credentials and send it to the Photon. It then took a very long time and nothing changed. So I disconnected the Photon and when I powered it on again it booted into Hard Fault mode.
I managed to flash the 6.0 firmware to the Photon but when it leaves the process it goes back straight into Hard Fault mode. Flash procedure: 3 red quick, 3 red slow, 3 red quick, 1 red, 3 red quick, 3 red slow, 3 red quick, 1 red, 1 short blue, 1 white. And then the whole flash procedure starts again.
What else is there to try?
