I’ve had my Spark Core sitting in a box here for a few months now. I’ve not started using it yet because I know the CC3000 module has been plagued with serious firmware issue(s). I’ve been waiting for Texas Instruments to resolve these before I start using Spark.
So I was really interested to read about the recent Spark “Deep Update” message. However, my hopes that the CC3000 issues had been fixed seems to have been dashed.
This recent (June) thread in the CC3000 forum is calling for a grievance letter to be sent to CC3000 senior management about the failure to resolve the issues.
What is Spark’s position on this? Would they agree that the latest CC3000 firmware is still irrevocably broken? Or does the Spark team have some extra knowledge that suggests that it is possible to make the CC3000 operate reliably?
