Hi, I have taking a embedded class atm using the photon so I have limited knowledge on some of the more advance way to tackle this problem.
I put the photon in listen mode.
Connect to it with the phone app.
Am able to find it, and connect to it.
Find my wifi network, and am able to connect to it.
Midway through the next step on the app, The light changes to breathing cyan and said "setup completed successfully"
I do not see the device under my account, and I believe it skipped the step that let me claim it from the forum post I have read.
I have repeated this process 4x now. Using a rapid blue light mode to make sure it was not used by another user before myself.
