Boron reset to factory settings

Hi All,

I am trying to reset one of my Borons to default factory settings. I found this tutorial in the particle site

but I am not sure if this is just for creating my own default firmware. The main idea is to downgrade the firmware version because I am having some issues with my code that could be due to a recent firmware upgrade.

Thanks for your help,

Hi @juanes -

Are you using the WebIDE to flash your device? If so, I would think one way is to simply select the target OS in the left pane before flashing, see attached.

You can also try to flash tinker to your device from the app or via CLI. Tinker would remove your code from the device.

Hope this helps, let me know.

Regards, Friedl.

Changing the target Device OS does not roll back the version of Device OS on the device.

The best way to restore a device to a known state is:

  • Device Restore USB if you want to do it over USB.
  • Device Restore JTAG if you want to do it using the Particle debugger and SWD/JTAG. This works in some situations where the device is really in a bad state.
