Hi @eric and community.
I’ve been working on the Gateway Shield firmware to make it support other BLE peripherals.
I recently flashed a version of the Firmware that had an code bug. I could not connect the Gateway to the cloud after this so I could not correct it. So I had to factory reset the Gateway.
Now as I boot up the Shield never connects to the Cloud and the Particle Core seems to be in a weird state (I power up, the Core connects and breathes blue, the Gateway L2 blinks to indicate it is connecting and then the Core suddenly disconnects and goes to flashing green and then reconnects to the Cloud. This cycle then continues).
See video here:
Here is the log from Serial after bootup until the Core acts weird:
I’m thinking that the Factory reset didn’t work (I’ve tried a few times) and my code issue is still causing this weird state.
(I believe there is an issue here with Factory Reset - I touch D6 and then Grd and reset, L2 blinks rapidly, I hold for 15 seconds and release Grd, D7 stays on steadily for 15 seconds) Everything is supposed to reset then but I think it’s not as the Cores lights are is the same state as when the D7 goes off, whereas if it resets it should go back to the usual Core bootup LED sequence)
is there any situation where a Factory reset can fail or can you spot anything wrong in the log?
The Core itself works fine. I’ve taken it out of the Gateway and tested it with other apps.
Thanks very much,
