I have an original Kickstarter Spark Core that I never used, but figured I'd try it out for a project now. Smart Config fails, so I've followed the guide an used a terminal & USB instead. I supplied my wifi credentials and the LED now follows a sequence like this:
- 3 x Slow blink White
- 1 x Fast blinking Green
- 3 x Fast blink White
After this, it stays solid magenta (no blink/fade). According to the guide, it should blink magenta and do an update, but it does not. The first time, I left it like this for two hours with no noticeable change.
I've also tried to do this via the command line tools to no vain. It does just the same - stays magenta.
