So I am now having TONS of issues,
I have tried following the steps in this https://docs.particle.io/guide/getting-started/modes/photon/#wi-fi-network-reset
And NONE of them work as stated, NOT A SINGLE ONE WORKS!!!
I cannot hold the SETUP button and get it into listening mode.
To erase the stored wifi networks on your Photon, hold the SETUP button for about ten seconds, until the RGB LED blinks blue rapidly. You can also reset the Wi-Fi networks by holding the SETUP button and tapping RESET, then continuing to hold SETUP until the light on the Photon turns white. (This differs from the Core. Doing this action on the Core will result in a factory reset.)
DOES NOT WORK!
My photon turns on and breathes cyan, then goes to breathing GREEN.
No MATTER WHAT I DO, I cannot get it to setup, I have unclaimed the device and tried to setup from particle-cli, a meteor softap, NOTHING works.
I don’t even know how to get dfu-util installed, what do I do now?
My computer is UBUNTU 14.04 and it worked fine 3 days ago.
I do wonder this, why does it recognize it in serial in the console, then I have to connect to wifi, why can’t it just CONNECT in the CLI to the photon that way, This step is LITERALLY NOT HAPPENING for me.
This is the MOST frustrating thing I have ever dealt with, it worked one day, now it doesn’t.
Anybody have any directions I can CLEARLY follow, like how to install this silly DFU-UTIL that isn’t just INCLUDED IN THE CLI #1, and some clearer directions to flash new firmware in the terminal since this is seems like its going to be a common occurrence already.
