This may be more than one problem but I am trying to flash a couple older photons that were running an old OS (0.5.0-ish). I’m able to get them online and can see them come online in the console events log but the firmware won’t actually run. I’ve tried safe mode, DFU, flashing several times from the web IDE and from the CLI, nothing seems to work. The flash always says successful and I see the device come back online but even with a very simple one line of code to publish a test message, still nothing. Tinker will flash but doesn’t respond to tinkering which would tell me the firmware isn’t running at all. The web IDE and console show Unknown OS as well.
Am I missing something simple? Can somebody point me in the right direction to get these working? One last kicker, the photons are plugged in 1000 miles away. I can remote desktop the PC they’re connected to so I can work on them via USB but I just started getting a CLI error (LIBUSB_NOT_SUPPORTED) when I try any USB commands to the board. I’ve tried reinstalling the CLI as well as the standalone windows drivers with no luck.
