Hi, I’m using a particle photon and I have been working with for a month now. I had downgraded it to 0.6.2.rc1 due to some internal reasons and everything was fine. However, I want to update the OS to 0.8.x. I tried uploading the tinker code from the web IDE with the target OS et but it is not able to flash my photon.
For my daily flashing, I flash using the CLI and it still seems to work. However, I’m not able to update my photon OS. I thought that the easiest method would be to do it using the web IDE but it doesn’t seem to work. Any ideas what might be going wrong?

What exactly isn’t working? Are there any errors, strange LED statuses, or anything else out of the ordinary? Have you selected the correct device? Is the flashing showing up in the console?


#3

I have selected the correct device. It is just showing that the flash was unsuccessful. I have tried it again and again and with different OS versions and still the problem persists.

@moz, make sure you have the latest (v1.40.0) installed. Put your Photon into listening mode and run particle serial inspect and post the output. We need to see which version of the bootloader and system firmware modules are installed on that Photon.

That is the thing. I am stuck at 0.6.2 and not able to update the OS.
The inspect output is:

@moz, have you tried putting the device in DFU mode and doing particle update?
