I am having unprecedented issues setting up and registering a Boron.
I cannot use the phone app because 1. the first time it hung on “Sending Part 1 to Device 100%” and I needed to exit, and because now the phone app says “Unable to find your mesh device …” even as it is flashing blue and cellular ant is attached.
Needing therefore to use Particle CLI in my Windows CMD, I type “particle setup” with Boron flashing blue, it ask me to use my account, I type “Y” then it just quits execution and does nothing:
I have tried particle doctor, particle usb reset in DFU mode, and flashing bootloader + tinker 1.5.0 rc-1.
For the life of me I cannot setup this brand new Boron I have purchased which does not appear to have any hardware defects at all.
When I first tried the phone app and encountered the “Sending to device: 100%” hang, when I canceled, I then went into my Particle Console and saw that the Boron did in fact register, just without a name and on 1.1.0. So I thought, “great, I’ll just update it manually with particle flash --usb “1.50.0 rc system part 1"”. So I did that. Then I reset and it began flashing blue again and entered the nonresponsive, unsetup state I am struggling with. Never before have I seen the mere act of updating Device OS unregister the device from the cloud. So I went and unclaimed it on the console (it would no longer connected to cloud after receiving 1.5.0 rc1 system part 1”, thinking this would revert me to factory. Now I seem permanently unable to use this Boron!
And to prove there is USB connection, here is the successful result of particle identify:
This is very frustrating. Any help?
