  • Firstly apologies for going 'off-piste'...
    but since I was intended to do some heavy hacking I didn't want to accidentally brick/destroy an official bangle.js but had no qualms blatting a generic watch I could easilly replace. So picked up an (I think identical?) unbranded version. (and I was rather taken with the red case! :) (pic1)

    I'm connected via SWD, an STLink2 and OpenOCD (as I said I intended to do some hacking, bootloader changes, different NRF softdevice etc)

    I thought everything was going well, but now I seem to be at an impasse, I assume I've missed something obvious or done something stupid, so any suggestions welcome. However obvious!
    I've got a local build of Espruino using current git code.
    After flashing then hex through OpenOCD:

    On reboot, says "storage is corrupt, erasing" then shows a ">" cursor. (pic2)

    I thought/wondered if this was just because no apps had been uploaded/bundled and I can connect to the watch via "bangle.js/apps" from there if I run "Install Default Apps" the "Erasing..." happens but then it proceeds to uploading bootloader, displays "Uploading boot..." and hangs. (pic3)

    Not sure if it's a related problem, but if I connect to the watch via nRFConnect it shows up as 'Nordic UART Service' with no DFU service.

    Any suggestions what I've missed or what I should/could try?
