I have an Argon and Xenon and have been using them together successfully for quite a while. OS 1.4.2 was installed with SYSTEM_MODE(AUTOMATIC) and no thread enabled.
Flashing GREEN rapidly began a couple of weeks ago and I have tried many suggestions from others I read from this Particle community resource. At this point, I would like to be able to set this device to factory settings and pair it up again with the Argon. Start from scratch. I am failing to make the Xenon flash BLUE. Thanks for any suggestions you might have to accomplish this.
Recently, tried “particle update” while in DFU mode several times and then downloading tinker but still resulting with rapid flashing GREEN on reset or power cycle with device showing offline in app.
Below is the command and response for flashing tinker:
particle flash --usb tinker -v
