I purchased a photon over a year ago but only just started using it today. I set it up, and connected it to my wifi through my phone. I was able to set up the device in the IDE, when I push the signal button it blinks accordingly.
When I try to flash the device it times out and tells me it’s unsuccessful. I set up the the particle cli and firmware utility to update the device. I put it in the yellow blinking mode and have tried the update command, the doctor command and about everything else I could find but I get nothing but “Error - No DFU device found.”
I tried connecting to the device over serial (in listening mode) but it seems to not exist. An ls /dev returns nothing.
Feels like this thing is bricked yet there is still some connectivity to the cloud because the signaling works. What am I doing wrong?
