I was going to give my Particle to a friend and wanted a copy of the id.
The device has firmware 0.6.1 and I am running Mac OS X 10.9.5
I put the device into Listen Mode (medium speed blue flashing).
When I type “particle identify” (without the quotes) at the terminal prompt it replies with
the correct id and a few seconds later my machine crashes with a kernel panic.
No other Mac applications are running at the time.
Other CLI commands seem to work properly. For example: “particle list” returns the
id that I want (as well as firmware variables and functions).
Suggestions most appreciated.
