I’m having a lot of weird issues with my new Photon. I really hate using smart-devices so I tried to avoid using the app, I instead used particle-cli, which thought my Photon was a Spark Core. It couldn’t connect over
/dev/ttyACM0, nor could PuTTY (I run Linux, PuTTY is cross-platform).
/dev/ttyACM0 exists in my filesystem. I couldn’t connect at all via the serial terminal over USB, so I tried the app, and it connected to the wifi signal out of the photon (Photon-XYZ) and it failed when trying to disconnect, said it was an internal problem with the device. The photon at this point, was blinking green, and hasn’t stopped since. I tried setting it up with the app again, and it did the same thing. The photon starts blinking green on every reset or unplug/plug.
/dev/ttyACM0 no longer exists in my filesystem, after trying to set it up with the app. My photon is currently connected and blinking green very fast. The WiFi access point no longer exists and my device is still blinking green.
