Several Electrons have been working reliably in the field for years, all running on the then-current device OS 0.4.8, and identical app code. I recently had to make a minor code change and successfully flashed it OTA to all devices, and after that everything worked as it should. I then thought it would be a good idea to bring the ancient device OS up to date (ver. 2.3.0), I step I now regret. I flashed the devices again with an OS target of 2.3.0. All but one location worked, but one location (unfortunately 6 hours away by car) is now in a loop “online” >>> “panic, assert_failed” >>> etc.
Observations on the Partice console (see screenshot):
- (orange highlight): The device in question is now on device OS 0.6.4, which I did not explicitly request, but it may be one of the intermediate steps to get to 2.3.0
- (yellow highlight): The “Last Handshake” is fairly current, and “Last Heard” occurs consistently every 30 seconds or so, so the network connection can’t be all that bad.
Is there anything I can do (preferably remotely) to bring the device back online?
