When flashing to my electron on Windows the only way I could ever get it to work was by activating DFU mode and flashing through usb with particle flash --usb firmware.bin.
For some reason when I tried to flash the firmware file I got from the WebIDE i got an error that said incorrect platform id. The command prompt suggested that I try the command “–force” so I did but afterwards the electron now flashes yellow even when i restart the electron.
To try to fix this problem I used some commands not really knowing what I was doing
particle flash --usb cc3000
particle flash --usb tinker
npm install -g particle -cli
Now when i try to do particle flash --usb firmware.bin I get the message:
"‘particle’ is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file"
So I can’t even use particle commands anymore now? I have no idea what to try next or what my problem even is anymore.
