If you search my history, you will find that at another time it occurred that a decisively software-only issue with a Particle Device OS update caused me extreme trouble with my Borons (relating to PMIC charging).
Now, with 1.5.2, I am witnessing a semi-return of the “never reconnects” “flashes green ad-infinitum” software issue that rendered the Boron totally useless until 1.3.1-rc1.
I have a Boron just updated to 1.5.2 that whenever I flash, it never reconnects. I must do a manual power cycle. It is different from the old issue, because during program execution, if it loses the cell signal, it will reconnect eventually (however even this works incredibly unsatisfactorily, sometimes taking long intervals of time to reconnect when brought back into areas of perfect signal where the connection by power cycle would be established in mere 20 seconds).
This is confined to flashing an update, and then subsequent reconnect.
I understand it’s my responsibility to post my code. But before I become an unpaid Particle debugger by flashing an empty program, testing, flashing the old OS, testing my current code, and then testing a blank program (the logically proper control tests), can I ask if anyone else is experiencing this?
The Boron will be such a great product once it works reliably. In the meantime, it is extremely frustrating to see the potential utility of the product plagued by issues like this.
