So, just got my Photons! Yay! So, with one of them, setup was a breeze, used the Android app, connected no problem. The other one however… I’ll just lay it out in list form what I’ve tried to get it to connect.
- Tried the app. Sometimes it gets access to the Photon, which goes to to blinking green when I pass it the wifi credentials, but then goes back to blinking blue, and eventually the Android app give an error.
- Tried Particle-CLI. On my laptop (Win7), doesn’t detect the serial connection, and the Wifi setup doesn’t work. On desktop (w/o Wifi), doesn’t detect serial connection.
- Tried manually connecting to it via a serial terminal, which works, and was able to get the device id and upload wifi credentials, but Photon again just blinks green for a bit, before going back to blinking blue again.
- Updated (via dfu-util) the firmware to the latest version (via https://github.com/spark/firmware/releases, including updating the user-part), and tried everything again. Still no luck.
If it helps, it’s a headerless Photon, w/ device id 2c002f000447343232363230, and it doesn’t seem like it would be a hardware problem, but there’s evidence of rework near the Wifi antenna (leftover flux).
Any ideas anyone? I’ve pretty much exhausted what I can think of. Thanks!
