I am very frustrated because I have made an investment in Particle and am currently relying upon a Boron for a time-sensitive project to no avail.
I have concluded with high confidence that Particle has destroyed the cellular connection stability sometime after v1.3.1-rc1. I am making another thread about this separate topic.
The Boron platform is useless to me therefore if I can’t downgrade the OS to 1.3.1-rc1.
I have a new Boron that I setup with 2.0.0-rc1. It was connected.
I flashed V1.3.1-rc1 to it. It would never connect. I came back hours latter seeing a blank, dead Boron with no light. I pulled it out of the socket then popped it back in. Back to eternal green flashing. I connected it to my PC with USB. Eternal green flashing.
Then I flashed 2.0.0-rc1 back to it. Viola, it connected.
Then I flashed back 1.3.1-rc1. Eternal green flashing; never connects.
Therefore, I cannot use 1.3.1-rc1. Therefore, given premise #2 above, the entire Particle Boron platform for me is destroyed and utterly useless.
It is upsetting to me that Particle used to, but no longer does, have a product for me where I can connect my sensors reliable to LTE. This is highly frustrating.
Why is this happening?
What is physically different about my Boron unable to connect with 1.3.1-rc1, to my other two out in the field, which have been running 1.3.1-rc1 loyally and perfectly for months, always reconnecting?
- I flashed tinker and systempart 1 with CLI command line in DFU mode.
- I used the same cellular antenna and the same spot for my observations of 2.0.0- connects vs. 1.3.1-rc1 never does
- I also tried 1.4.0. Same: never connects.
