I just got a new Particle Photon and setting up was all fine until I flashed my first firmware into the photon.
Now the photon would blink rapidly for a second (in all sorts of colors which ends with cyan) then there’s no more light at all. I would press the reset button, and this would happen again.
Details of my photon
Device type: Photon
Firmware version installed on the device: 0.6.1
Steps I’ve tried
I’ve tried connecting the Photon to my Mac and using the Firmware Manager app. If I press the reset button while the manager is running, it’ll blink randomly for a second, then blink blue. I tried updating the firmware, using the manager, and it would for a while, but instead of “Update complete” it goes back to the initial update button, as though nothing happened.
While the Photon stayed blinking blue, I would attempt to set it up again using the iPhone app. The setup would succeed, and the photon would blink then breathe magenta for quite some time. The Particle console would show that it would cycle between “spark/status/safe-mode”, “spark/safe-mode-updater/updating: 2”, “spark/flash/status: started” and “device came offline” over and over again before eventually getting “spark/safe-mode-updater/aborted: too many tries”. After this it will be stuck in breathe magenta. If I try to flash the app into the photon again, it’ll die once again.
The code i tried to flash
It was just a simple script I found online.
Does anyone know what’s up with my Photon? Thanks in advance!
