After updating to El Capitan and serial ports stopped working I did a bunch of stuff to try and figure out why my Spark Core wasn’t recognized. After node-serialport got updated I was finally able to find my core when it was plugged in to send it wifi credentials but it would get stuck in an endless loop trying to connect. Here are the current steps
node v. 0.12
- Plug in Spark Core
- Reset the Core (hold both buttons down, release the right, release the left when it begins flashing white; Core begins blinking blue)
particle serial wifi: scan for networks, select network, Y to wireless security type
- Enter wifi password
- Device restarts and begins blinking orange rapidly.
Should I reflash the firmware? How do I do that, exactly?
