I just ran across this page, Device Restore USB | Tools | Particle. Not sure how I have missed it in the past. This is solving some of the problems we have with customers unable to install the Particle CLI on their systems to perform some administrative activities. I’m wondering what the future hold for this. Is there a roadmap to shift Wi-Fi setup to doing something like this instead of SoftAP? That would be great! Since this does require Chrome, would be cool if this could be wrapped in an Electron app for distribution that way so that even having Chrome installed isn’t a requirement.
Let me know if there is any more information available.
