I am having a weird time with my Photon.
It’s an old Photon, and was running an old fw I copied just to blink a led.
Today, I decided to start working on it again.
Did an OTA, and it entered safe-mode. Did a reset, and then had trouble connecting it to Wifi.
The only method that worked was on my desktop, with Linux, and a wifi-dongle. Other attempts with Windows didn’t worked.
But now, I just cannot go further. Cannot re-flash tinker (dfu process says error on address and/or signature) from CLI.
But a Tinker is installed, since I can operate it from Android App. So, it’s connected and alive. D7 controls a led.
Then I tried to upload a new FW, using 0.6.2 (it’s 0.4.3 currently), and the moment I click FLASH, the breathing cyan hangs. Tried this several times. Then I tested just “SIGNAL” from the particle.io/build particle devices. Same thing: the moment I click SIGNAL, the light hangs. Right after stopping breathing, tinker also stops functioning. When I reset the Photon, Tinker starts working again.
What am I missing here?
