Dfu util, photon flashing green after flash of my firmware


after using dfu-util -d 0x2B04:0xD006 -a 0 -s 0x80A0000:leave -D firmware.bin in the appropriate folder directory my photon is flashing green. Any help would be appreciated as to why this may be happening. I do not have cloud access.


@godjohnson, is your Photon’s two system firmware parts at the same version as what you created firmware.bin with? Is firmware.bin your application bin file? How did you create it?

I did not take that into consideration. The redboard is a fresh replacement, I havent done any manual updating. I will attempt to update the firmware with a usb flash or online and let you know if it solves the problem.
The redboard flashes fine from the cloud. It flashes, successfully with dfu util, but just reverts to blinking green immediately after.

The firmware is my application bin file. I created the .bin with the build.particle.io and downloaded it to my machine.

Thanks for the reply,

@godjohnson, if you have CLI installed, you can update your system parts with particle update (USB connected Photonin DFU mode). Then you can flash your application over or Tinker with Particle flash --usb tinker. :wink:
