I have a Photon that is really funky. It basically seems like it’s out of sync with the cloud. It turns on as normal, but when it connects to wifi (fast white blinks) it does not go online. Instead it gives a quick red blink and then goes back to blinking quickly white and this then repeats forever.
There’s two very peculiar observations I have that can be relevant:
- In my Devices on build.particle.io this Photon seems to always be online (cyan dot) even when it’s not powered.
- As opposed to ALL my other Photon’s, this one CAN be setup via the Android app (ref this thread). Setup actually works every time, so this could be what the Android developers need to know to fix the bug.
This looks like there’s a server bug that prevents this device (Device ID 24005a000a51353335323535) from submitting it’s online/offline status. This in turn makes it possible to set it up via the Android app. In other words, the Android app problem could basically be a simple true/false issue in code?
The device has the latest 0.6.0 firmware.
