Ok - I’m going crazy. I have an original Kickstarter Core that worked fine and spent most of the last 2-3 years sitting on my shelf.
Now I’m trying to flash from the Cloud IDE. After it blinks magenta, it then goes to a yellow flash. The only way I can recover is to flash with the particle cli:
particle flash --usb myapp.bin --force
This appears to work just fine. However, it’s a hassle and I’d really like the web flash to work!
I think I did the cc3300 “deep update” a year ago when I wrestled with this problem. (I’m using particle cli 1.11, and my program is built with firmware 0.5.2).
One more clue: If I don’t use the “–force” option, the Particle flash command returns this:
running dfu-util -l
Found DFU device 1d50:607f
Error writing firmware…Incorrect platform id (expected 0, parsed 53161), use --force to override
