This can get tricky sometimes. What firmware do you have on the Argon? I have found it better to flash Tinker to the Argon first. That way nothing will cause the process to time out.
Alternatively you can use the CLI if you’re comfortable. Here’s the workflow:
- Plug your device into USB
- Keep the ID from the output (alternatively if you know the name of the device you can skip this step)
- Then, you can do a
particle mesh add <device ID or name> <argon ID or name>
(You may have to plug in the second device to your machine as well for this to work)
This should add your Xenon to the same network as your Argon. You will have to enter the mesh network password during this process. The upside of all of this is there’s no phone involved!
Also, you may have to set the setup complete flag on the Xenon. Otherwise it will reset into listening mode (Blinking Blue).
Put the device into DFU mode (Blinking yellow) and run the following:
echo -n -e \\x01 > dummy.bin
dfu-util -d 2b04:d00c -a 1 -s 8134:leave -D dummy.bin
It should restart, boot and connect as normal.
Let me know how it goes.
