I’m working on an Android app, but from the app alone I can’t unset the “claimed” flag.
unclaim() method only unclaims the device in Particle Cloud. It doesn’t actually remove the claimed status on the device, which means that no user will be able to claim the device again until the claimed flag is reset. It will say that it’s already owned by another user, asking if I want to set the owner to “null”. I faced this issue here: Failing to Setup Product that has previously been claimed
The flag can be reset to false (c=0) either by reflashing the firmware as described here, with this command
dfu-util -d 2b04:d006 -a 1 -s 1762:64 -D clear_claim.bin
I don’t think we can use the particle firmware api for this, though, as it relies on the ability to flash at specific device address offset. Am I wrong, or is there a way to do this with the Particle firmware API here? https://docs.particle.io/reference/device-cloud/api/#flash-a-device-with-a-pre-compiled-binary
It’d be really nice if unclaiming a device from the Particle Cloud API actually unset this flag on device (when connected) without needing to go through another step. How do those with production apps do this?
