My photon flashes green forever and when I put it into listening mode (flash blue fast) and connect to wifi, it never works.
I usually am able to figure these things out but this one is strange.
Things I tried:
Using iPhone app to connect to WiFi
Using CLI to connect to Wifi
Using usb serial to connect to wifi
DFU flash from CLI
Tinker flash from CLI
Get out an old access point, connect it to the internet, and test it with that
It always either flashes green or flashes blue after I put it into listening mode. It never breathes blue.
Also when I do try to connect it to the wifi using the first 3 ways I listed, it tells me that is is done changing the wifi but it doesn’t connect. Flashes green and then flashes blue after this.
