I had a Photon connected to battery power running a simple app that played a pretty pattern over an LED strip, which slowly drained the batteries and died completely without my intervention but whilst I watched it sadistically. After this, once I powered the Photon on via a reliable power (eg, USB), it went into “listening mode” with the blue flashing light. I went through the steps to reconnect to the device to my WIFI again via the iPhone app and it went through everything with ticks, but then at the end showed an error saying that the device is offline and to try again.
Have tried several times, also tried using various different power sources, putting into safe mode, restarting the process, etc. In desperation, I have already begun playing Enya mega-mixes on repeat whilst I consider that my only remaining option is suicide, but thankfully my enduring hunger is keeping me optimistic of a future beyond this terrible grief.
Here’s a video showing the LED sequence it is currently stuck in.
What have I done to this poor little thing?!
