Flashing not working


Just setup Spark Core using the iPhone and the LEDs are working using Tinker. However, when I try to flash BlinkLED code from Spark Build, it’s not working. It keeps complaining that

“The request seems to take longer than usual. Please be patient…”

Also, I don’t see the magenta light go on at all.

I have tried the following:

  • Reset Spark Core
  • Tried to refresh Spark Build page
  • Tried the flashing half a dozen times

No luck, please advise.


Hi @abhinavk - it’s possible that something running on your Core is blocking the incoming request for the OTA flash. Have you tried factory resetting the Core, and then starting again?
