Newest version, 3.0.0-rc1:
This is highly infuriating. I designed my PCBs to make the other boards run-off Boron LiPo and Boron is supposed to charge the LiPo through VUSB. I’ve been with Particle for 1.75 years and I still haven’t seen simple, working implementation of Solar charging supported in newest firmware versions where there isn’t some critical issue (once the Boron-never-reconnect issue was fixed, the red-SOS-crash-on-basic-Serial-RX catastrophic failure was introduce, and this was just fixed in V3.0.0-rc1).
But alas, forget about solar charging, now Boron won’t even regularly charge LiPo when connected over USB 5V, which always worked before.
It does not charge and I have no code disabling charging. It also seems not to charge still even after I call the following code:
Does Particle publish a Device OS version for the Boron, which, all at the same time:
- Won’t infinitely disconnect and never reconnect due to incorrect memory handling coding practices in the firmware;
- Won’t randomly hard crash because the UART RX received some data; and
- Is capable of charging the LiPo battery?
Thank you for your help in advance.
