I have two new photons just out of the boxes. both do the same thing. I get them connected to my wifi and they breathe cyan very briefly (for about 20 seconds I can see them as online on my android phone. Then they start doing something flashing white, flashing green, reboot, flash, yadda, yadda, which ultimately ends in a slow breathing magenta for both of the devices. If I do a factory reset, the same thing happens again.
I’ve not downloaded anything, just trying to get them to be “online” on my android phone so I can play with the inputs/outputs.
I received my Photon last night, and eventually ended up in a breathing magenta state. I believe I did a factory reset among other reboot procedures to get it working, and the best I could do was the breathing magenta and the mobile app listing it as offline.
I selected “Reflash Tinker” from the phone, and the Photon came to life.
