Within the last month I purchased a Particle
Core Photon. I have powered it on through a USB-to-microUSB cable attached to the laptop and I find the blue light blinks (indicating it is in listening mode). Next I downloaded the app on the phone and followed the instructions to connect the Core Photon to the WiFi network.
The process completed successfully by placing a check as it completed each section of connection process to the network. It then mentions the
Core Photon is updating the firmware and continues to blink on the LED with a Blue and Red light (at the same time). Is this firmware update expected to take more than 30 minutes?
After thirty minutes I held the setup button for 3 seconds and started the process over again. However, I am finding the same problem again. The blink blue and red LED is still flashing for a long time. Can you provide any guidance?
