"COMING SOON! Detailed instruction for flashing over JTAG and DFU using Particle's bootloader"


#1

Can anyone on the Particle Team speak to when this might be forthcoming?

Specifically, the topic question is from the Particle Guide: https://docs.particle.io/guide/how-to-build-a-product/manufacturing/#programming-the-device

There is some verbiage on JTAG here, but I’m wondering what my other options might be for offline app loading?

Also, does anyone here run a Photon after executing particle.disconnect() in setup()?


#2

Either Serial or DFU should work, though the latter is preferred since it has better error output.


#3

Have you looked at SYSTEM_MODE and considered using SEMI_AUTOMATIC?


#4

Thanks for your reply @Moors7… I’ll be trying the CLI in a short bit so I can get an idea about the time involved via direct USB. I’ve been following your replies on a similar thread as well: How to upload .bin into photon

Excellent point @peekay123 . This nets the same result as I’m looking to run Photons w/o any Particle Cloud connectivity. Thanks for the suggestion.
