Terminal: particle list works but DFU fails?


How is it possible that in a terminal, I’m able to run

particle list

…and it lists my Boron board’s name and id with the message “(Boron) is online”, but immediately after, when I run…

particle usb dfu

… I get “No devices found

Maybe I’m not understanding the DFU functionality? I’m trying to set it up to flash my 1st program properly.

And if it helps, the Boron stopped flashing, and I can’t get it to start flashing any color pattern.


If anyone else has this issue, the Air Quality Monitoring Kit’s dust sensor was causing the problem. Once that was unplugged, the Boron board went back to normal.
