Sadly, every time I unpack a new photon I seem to run into issue with setting up using the (Android flavour) app and the Web IDE. So it has been with the latest Photon - brand new out of the box last night.
The story so far.
Put the photon into AP mode (flashing blue)
Found it on the app and connected to it - paired it with my House WIFI (same room, about 4 foot from the photon) with no problem.
Consulted the WEB IDE and yep “devices” shows my new device - gave it a customer name there. Photon is breathing cyan like a champion. (V0.6.3 firmware and shows breathing Cyan on the WEB IDE footer).
Did the “SIGNAL” test - all works fine.
Tried to download some code into it (very simple known working program) but it times out. Tried 3 more times - same result. LED on the board never changes from breathing - so seems like its not even trying. BUT Will still do the SIGNAL test to order, so there is cloud communication available.
Perhaps some random code in the Photon is making it crash on take off? Did a safe mode reset. No change.
Reset the Wifi credentials and paired it up again (using sequence above) all seemed okay (after a couple of tries) - but I still have the same problem with uploading code to it.
Do I have a faulty Photon, or am I missing something obvious.
Thanks as always for any help.
