I just bought the e series evaluation board 2G/3G and to be honest it’s really frustrating to develop with this ecosystem. In a cooperate environment, it’s not easy.
If you forget about the Particle IDE problems I have during development, I created hardware and wrote some code to validate that my hardware works. Now it’s time to get finish my proof of concept.
I can not get a reliable way to flash using the online IDE at work. I am on wifi and ethernet.
I get those error message saying “it’s longer then normal, wait” or other similar message that disappear super fast.
I tried Visual Studio and was super happy about it but does not work at work because I am 100% certain that I get block by firewall since get error when downloading toolchain and other stuff.
Right now, as I write this, I am at home and using Visual Studio.
Last night, I was compiling (both offline and cloud) and that was working.
I was flashing (both offline and cloud) and that was working. ( I tried both since I was learning about the command like in VSC)
I was in DFU with yellow light and then clicking flashing and was working fine.
But now, I can not even change the code in my module. Nothing works.
For test purpose, I just want to blink LED.
Right now, the module is glowing cyan and the particle console can see it. I am online.
When in web IDE and click flash, I get "Flash successful! Your device is being updated…"
same for VSC
- I ping it and it respond (Last Handshake: Mar 13th 2019, 5:35 pm )
- I run diagnostic and everything is healthy
- Device OS is unknown in my particle console
- DFU does not work anymore with VSC
- Clean Application (local) in VSC
- I am on chrome Version 73.0.3683.75 (Official Build) (64-bit)
- 1.0.1 for my eserie
- I am not deep down in basement or cave ( I have clear view of outside)
- I have clear the cache
- Change USB cable
- Lipo is not connected
- closed chrome
- It’s COM26 on my laptop
- I have no SIMs here… https://console.particle.io/sims
I remenber last time I could see my data usage and could pause SIM, etc. I can’t find this in my console.
- I did create a “product” in my console for the sake of learning. Could that stop my SIM?
Should I do firmware reset?
well first I will test tomorrow at work.
I did try the “safe mode” but don’t know what do to when it’s in safe mode.
here are info from listening mode
system firmware version: 1.0.1
here is after msg I got when I flash using DFU and VSC.
